God Bless. I said a prayer for you and Mom.
thank you so much! I just now read this, I'm sorry not to have responded sooner. She has had her MRI, and now we are waiting for the next step.
Hi Jennifer, your post made me cry too. My Mum will be 86 in January and I've just turned 67 in October. As others have said it doesn't matter what age our Mums are they will always be in our hearts.
I really empathise with you with regard to your Dad having Dementia. My Mum was Dad's primary carer, he had Alzheimer's Disease too and it's not easy. My heart and prayers go out to you. May God hold you all up in his loving arms. Love Chris
thank you so much for your kind words. I was so upset when I wrote the post, and each response has made me cry. I think that I am facing up to my feelings which makes me feel a little stronger. I want to be there every step of the way with my mom, and I think I'm strong enough to do that.
Oh my goodness......you have to feel so overwhelmed right now....I will tell you none of us are ever ready to lose a parent and with all your mom's responsibilities makes it even more difficult......I pray that God keeps his protective arms around you and your family. Bless you all...
thank you so much. I struggle with even identifying my own emotions sometimes. I've had many times of tears this past week. I'm thankful that I am able to be the one to drive my mother to all her appointments. We have had many talks and I will treasure those times.
Oh my darling, what a heavy burden you must carry. It's never easy to loose our parents. I still want my mama and she's been gone 34 years. Love her, visit her, spend every spare minute you have with her and stay positive. Time is a precious gift. I'm adding you all to my prayer list and I promise that I'll be praying for your family.
thank you so much. Every message from each person in this thread has brought me to tears with the kind words. I don't know how it is going to end up being, but I do know that she has a strong faith and whatever happens, I will see her again someday.
I am happy that you have that comfort to carry you. Sit in the joy as long as you can.
Prayers for all!!!
Thank you so much
I am praying for them and all the family.
Thank you so much.
Illness and losing those we love is never easy! Praying for God's blessings for you and your family! We know it is not the divine plan for any of us to be here forever, but, that does not make it any easier to lose our loved ones!
No it doesn’t. But at the end, we do know we will see her again.
I have added her to my prayer list , you also. I have a 57 yr old daughter and understand how devastating it is to you..
Thank you so much. I’ve had a very teary day today
Your heartfelt request, Noah's prayer and the comments from other Cuties has me in tears. I will certainly pray for you, your parents, doctors and caregivers. Such a simple prayer from Carolyn, but God hears our hearts even when we don't have the words to say!
I lost my mom last year. She was 96 and I'm looking soon at 70. It wasn't easy then or now, but feel blessed that I had her love and guidance for so long.
Keep us posted on your mom's progress.
I will keep updates going on here as soon as I learn anything new. Thank you for your kind words, all of you
Dear God in Heaven,please hear the cry from my sister's heart be with her and the ones she loves Amen
I agree with you Carolyn in prayer.
My goodness what a powerful prayer that is for me. I try to keep lots of things private, but something urged me to post about her on Cute. Now I know why! Thank you thank you
I will keep you and your whole family in my prayers. Losing your mother at any age is tough - I lost mine when I was 27! And I still miss her every day. Prayers and hugs*, Deb
Thank you. It is a hard thing to deal with. I always knew it would happen, but I still hate the idea
Prayers are being said especially for them and you. Hugs. Nan
Thank you so much.
Will put them in my prayers. Sending over all the most positive vibes I can send.
Nobody wants to give up their parents. Take care. Hugs send. Linda
No it is very hard. I have come to terms with my dad slowly leaving us as the dementia grows. But this is really hard.
Positive thoughts for all of you. Its 10 years on the 25th that my mother died and taking the step up to being the eldest in the family is still strange.
My mom lost her mother on Christmas Day when mom was only 31. She is a little melancholy when no one is looking every Christmas Day.
Absolutely will I pray for you and your parents. A hug for you right now.
Thank you. Tears are flowing all day today
Praying for mom, dad, siblings, you and the diagnosis and treatment.
Thank you. I am truly overwhelmed with the wisdom I’ve found on this page.
Doesn't matter what age you are - your parents are your parents. When my parents passed - I had the distinct feeling that I was orphaned. Doesn't matter your age. Stay strong, easier said than done - but, stay positive, Your dear mother and father are in my prayers, as are you and your siblings. Please let us know how your Mom and Dad are doing! Lots of hugs and love and prayers, Laura
Thank you so much. I will post updates when I know something new.
