Mom came home from the hospital yesterday afternoon. It felt really good to have
her back here even though it would not be for long. Shortly after she arrived one of the
hospice nurses stopped over to bring all of the meds she would need and instructed
me about my duties.
As we were talking, Mom's breathing became a bit labored. We administered
comfort measures and she relaxed a bit. The trip from the hospital in the
ambulance back home must have been a bit disturbing for her. Later in the
evening the labored breathing began again and this time I became alarmed.
The last thing I wanted was for her to suffer. The nurse checked on her
and told me it may not be much longer.
Mom passed at 4:38 this morning. She left my arms into the arms of the
One who will provide her eternal comfort. My husband told me that she was
just waiting to come back home to her own room, her own family and to
Bentley too who stayed by her side before she felt free to let go.
My heartfelt thanks to all of you who left comments of support and prayers
for me. Also to those of you who sent loving emails. You all were so kind
to support me and provide the loving encouragement to help me get through
what has been a very tough week.
My Mom and Daddy are back together once again. There will never be
a day that goes by when I will not miss them both, yet I have comfort
knowing that their eternal life in His presence is their new home.
Susan and Bentley
