so sorry to hear about your mother,

my husband lost both of his parents within the last three years: his mother 3 years ago within weeks to cancer, and his father this march to a blood disorder he'd been fighting for several years. i know its been very hard on my husband, and each in different ways. and although i was very close to them as well, i know its not the same as if they were my parents.

I wish I could find the right words to bring you some comfort. But I do want you to know that you will be in my prayers. I cannot even begin to imagine the place you are at right now. I'm very close with my mother and it breaks my heart to read your post. Much love from Buggie

Dear Michelle, I am so sorry your mom had to go through a such a tough time. It gets even more difficult for you as there is little you can do about it.

I just pray God gives you and your mother a lot of strength and peace and healing.

The World can only change from within...

Hi Michelle,

I wish that you will have some solace. This is not an easy task and I too dread this kind of day. My thoughts are with you and that you should have the strength to get through it all with the love and support of you family.
Take card of yourself.

There is sadly no 'right' time to lose your mother. Even if she has had a poor quality of life of late, the end will be very hard for those she leaves behind when she is no longer able to fight her terrible disease.

I lost my mum 11 years ago, when my babies were 1 & 3 and not a day has gone by that I haven't missed her terribly - you always will, but it does get a little easier to bear the loss as time passes.

If your mum is anything like mine, it is a double blow cos she was a good friend as well as 'my mum'.

Big hugz to you and your family - if this is the time for your mum to be unburdened from her pain, then I hope you can find comfort in the many happy memories she has given you all.


Happy to be a physio by day, not happy to be a Spondy 24/7! wink3

oh Michelle, this is awful and so sad.
I had the same operation in 04' for my left shoulder same thing.
I do not understand how she got septic? This is from an infection.
My heart goes out to you in your moment of need and my prayers go out to you and your family. I am so sorry -
