Blonde - my father was in the hospital on life support for 32 days, he had beaten cancer but caught a respiratory infection and was at home post a doctor visit waiting for a room at the hospital to be arranged. He laid down, fell asleep, and never woke up again. Eventually his organs began to fail when he was on life support and making that decision to disconnect him was so very hard on my family. I feel your pain. We didn't have that choice with Rick and he had one of his most lucid days the day before he went into his coma and then died. Two days before he passed he had a terrible episode late at night, I knew I needed to call the hospice nurse asap yet he grabbed my hand and asked me "will I die tonight?". I looked at him and said "no honey not tonight", even though I didn't know for sure and I was terrified. Looking back that is the one regret I have, that perhaps he knew I was lying to him for the first time ever. To this day I don't know how to wipe away my personal sense of guilt over that, but with time I do have a greater perspective on it.

I think what I would say to you is I truly do believe that they know we truly love them and I do believe they forgive us too, for our struggle with losing them and the painful decisions that healthcare requires us to make at times.

I lost my father in 2000 and Rick in 2006, at times I wasn't sure my heart could take the pain of it but somehow, we find our way.

I will keep you and your mother and family in my prayers and know I do care for your journey right now and I so wish it life could be easier but at times, it's the thread that binds us. We all must walk this path of loss at one time or another.

Please take care of you too, I know this is such a strain on you.

You didn't lie to him you didn't  know,when God is going to take him.
If you said yes it would have been worse on him he could have gotten more scared then he was.
IMO you did the right thing.
We don't know what God plands for us or when he wants to take us.

My Mom young Dr told us that my Mom want's to get off the life support, she is tired.
I said "she doesn't understand this means she will die."
The Dr said yes she does.
I said lets go now all together and ask her, because yes she wants off LS and yes she is tired but NO she is not ready to give up.
You were not clear to her.
When we asked MOM again she put up  her fist  to  fight 
I swear they want to unplug her and I have to keep my eye on them.

Of course your Mom wants off those intrusive life support apparatus' ... who wouldn't.

However ... those intrusive life support apparatus' are God-given blessings if your Mom still has the will to fight ... the will the live.

Your Mom has to be told the entire truth ... she has to comprehend the implication of being taken off life support.  Only then can an informed choice can be made.  It is her life.

Blonde ... your Mom is sooo fortunate to have you in her corner.  I know it is a difficult period in time for you but ... God will give you the strength to follow through ... just bow ... reach up and ... let you requests be known.  You are His precious precious child and ... as an Earthly father desires a relationship with his children throught communication ... so does the Heavenly Father.

God bless you and your Mom, Blonde.  Hooray for Sadie for wanting to fight.
Tell the young Dr. not to come back into her room unless he has another Dr.
with him.  You have that right.

Oh, Blonde! I'm in tears here with admiration for you!! Hon, you know your Mom and you are standing with her to make sure you are her voice and legs when her own can't serve her well. You are her daughter. Just as she looked to your needs when you were helpless as a child, you are seeing to hers now. What a testament to both of you that the love that was born then, has been preserved and matured and the bond is inseperable! That will never change, regardless of the events of any day that lies ahead.

You are rare, Blonde. You are a living picture of love and strength and all that's good. You stand in the most powerful place on earth: squarely within the Will of God. Draw strength and peace from it, because from that place it's there for you, for the asking. You and Sadie are in my prayers and in my heart.

Blonde - You and your mother are in my thoughts and prayers. God will guide you in the right direction, and help you to do the right thing for your mother.

I just went through this same issue with my Mother this past year, and it was excruciating. We decided as a family to place a Do Not Resuscitate in her chart this past summer when her days became more about fragility and pain than living.
She passed away 8 weeks ago, and I know in my heart that it was time to let her go. But it was so hard, and my grief has been deep. I do feel for you, and I understand this step you are taking with your mother as she leaves this Earth and goes into God's hands. He has given you both a gift....she has someone she can trust to be her caretaker in her final days, and you have the love for your mother that will let you listen to her, and ultimately do what is best for her. Later on, that will be a great comfort to you.
God Bless you both.

Blonde- you are a tremendous advocate for your mother and you are an incredibly strong person, stronger than you imagine. I'll keep you in my prayers for God to just guide you through this. She protected you as a child when you could not, now you are protecting her when she can't protect herself. Life always seems to take us full circle.

pdh - we have missed you and I know the loss is still so painful for you. Please take care.

Mom talked today  in a very  raspy voice" I don't want to live like this, I want to go home".
I tried to explain to her that she can't live without the Life Support and then she looked over at it.
I think she is getting very confused now.
Thieir is blood in the drain tubes now so I do fear the end is near.
God may take her at anytime.

My Daughter and I went to see Mom and one of her sisters came along.
I blessed Mom with the Holy water and put cream on her arm and face, and lip gloss.
She was awake and smiled at us ,she is on heavy drugs but still fighting for every breath.
We also gave her a tast of coffee with a sponge she was very happy about that.
When she fell asleep we left.
They are not going to try to get her off the Life Support anymore.
The Doctor said she was having enough of of a problem just breathing with it.

What a wonderful example you are to your daughter.
God bless you all, in this struggle.
