I have not been the most active member of this community, but you all have been invaluable to me during the past year. You are all so strong and brave and I’ve learned so much that has helped me navigate my mother’s illness.
I hope to stick around a bit to help in anyway that my limited knowledge of this horrible disease might provide and support those of you still battling and for your loved ones.
My mother was put into and in-patient hospice on Monday night where she went to sleep and stayed asleep until she peacefully passed Thursday morning.
Thank you all!
