Mother is at peace
Mother passed away very peacefully this afternoon. She had no more pain after we started the IV morphine yesterday, and she simply drifted off. We never had to move out of the hospital, and the staff were all wonderful. We were fortunate to have a great doctor who understands end-of-life issues, and that and the care from the staff, made all the difference.
I have my peace by knowing that she's at rest and with Dad, because she missed him so terribly.
Thanks to everyone here, too, for all your prayers and warmth. You all have been my anchor during the past couple of years. Thank you.
