More on My Momma....


Momma is breathing on her own, though there is no change. She still cannot talk, see, comprehend etc...They are moving her home to her apartment for Hospice. This is something that Momma would have wanted. To be home...I ask myself, Why? Why does God allow someone to linger on in this state? The doctors say she is not aware. I would not wish this on my worst enemy. I'm trying to remember her sweet smiling face, instead of the way she was in the hospital.
Please keep us in your prayers. I find some comfort in writing about it, though I know it's not the kind of thing you would want to read about.
Thank you anyway, for taking the time to read my thoughts. My thoughts are scattered right now, and I may not be doing things right.


All I can say is, Momma, please forgive me, if I do anything wrong. Momma, I love you so..I don't know what to do, but to take it one moment at a time.

Wow - I don't even know you, but you and your family will be in my prayers.

Maybe she needs this time at home so her you can all be with her more intimately. Being at home is much better.

God bless you all...and give you peace.

*Sending you many thoughts and prayers during this difficult time* I often, too, wonder why God allows people to exist this way-- I know it's all in his time, and perhaps, even if she can't speak, she knows she's home, and that's where she wants to be. If you need to talk, I'm here *hugs*
