I am so sorry. You have been such an amazing support to her through all of this and I know she must have been tremendously grateful for your never ending love and support. I'm sure it was very difficult for her to see you in pain. I'm sorry you were not there for her passing, but as you said, you had time to talk to her and say the things that you wanted to say before she was gone. I can't even begin to imagine the pain you are in right now. Again, I'm so sorry. I hope you can find some small comfort in knowing she is no longer in pain, no longer suffering. Love and hugs.

My condolences to you and your family on the loss of your mother.
Went in for surgery for a cyst on my bladder, and they found colon cancer growing on the outside of the colon. Got to have two surgeries at the same time! Stage 3, one node involved.
