Mom passed away peacefully sometime before 1:18 AM today. My sister and I were with her from 9 AM until a little after midnight. Her breathing was labored. They came to reposition her at midnight and the carers thought she might have more time. I think she was waiting for us to leave so that she could slip into my father's arms surrounded by her parents.

I'm sorry. It's very difficult to lose a mom. May you and your family be at peace.

I've come from Maple Corners site. I've been here a few times but never commented before. I'm from MN too. It's so cold here now. I'm sorry for you.

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. My grandfather passed away a little over a year ago from Alzheimer's, and I've been working on a series of poems about that experience that I hope will be put together in a chapbook this year. It's such a strange and sorrowful experience, and my thoughts are with you and your family now.

(PS: I am MN too. Stay warm.)

Robyn,
I come and read your blog as much as I can, but with being a caregiver myself, don't always find much time.

I just got on and saw that your mother passed away. I am so very sorry for your loss. May God be with you.
