Hour by Hour

May God Bless her and keep her.

May God Bless her and keep her.

Just a short post to update friends and family that my mother who was placed in Hospice care a while back, took a turn for the worst on Thursday morning.  She is 90 years old and has had a tremendous life but time is running out now.

The hospice case worker told us Thursday that time was being measured day to day.  On Friday, due to dropping blood pressure and other symptoms that was changed to hour by hour.  As in she could die any hour.  She is being kept comfortable and seems peaceful.  We have all said our goodbyes and tried to tell her stories to celebrate her life.

I am, of course, having trouble believing this is really “it”,  After all, my momma has always been with me.  My nurse daughter Amber talked with the hospice nurse long-distance from Denver yesterday.  She quietly but simply assured me last night that this was not a drill.  My momma is leaving this earth.

The plan will be to take her to Denver for burial next to my father and sister when she passes away.  Meanwhile, I keep waiting for the phone to ring with the news she is gone.

Please keep us in your prayers especially my dear mother.

  1. Cindy, I am so sorry to read this, and you and your family, especially your mother, are in my prayers. It’s so very difficult to lose anyone we love, but I think it’s especially difficult to lose our mothers. May her passing be peaceful, may your sorrow be brief, may your memories ease the pain. God bless you.

  2. Our thoughts and prayers are with you guys during this tough time Cindy. Here’s to a wonderful life well lived and the wonderful family that got to enjoy it with her!

  3. I have been out of town and drove in this morning. The first place I went when I got here was to see my sweet Midge. She seems very peaceful. Reminds me so much of our last days with Mimi. I will watch for the red birds.
