Birth/Death

Lots of time to think this last week.

You know it’s traumatic and difficult for the baby at birth. We usually focus on the mom. But the little baby is born in great discomfort.

Death is much the same.

When we die, most of us die slowly. And with great discomfort. Dying is not an easy process for most people. I have cared for many people as they died in hospitals. Now, I’m watching my mom. And trying to make her comfortable. She tells me daily that she wants to go ‘home’. My dad and brother are ‘home’. And now that my sister has returned to her faith and her God, my mom can rest. But it’s slow and difficult.

I’ve cared for many in the process of dying. But I think my heart is being torn from me this time.

When they thought mom had cancer but weren’t sure and she didn’t want to pursue any surgery or treatment I was so afraid mom would have terrible pain. I cried and I prayed. God spoke to me. He said that he loves my mom and has always been very good to her and to trust him. He spoke this to my spirit and mind.

Babies and the elderly, they have much in common. I think that’s why they usually like each other.

      Thank you sister. Mom and I didn’t sleep much last night. Her heart was beating way too fast and she labored at breathing. I gave her meds earlier and added a dig and K+ and by 7:30AM her beat suddenly became normal sinus rhythm. She if finally able to sleep. I’m relieved. We both thought she was going to be with Jesus last night. (She wants no trip to the hospital. I just stay in touch with our doctor in trying to keep her comfortable.).
      It’s hard for me. But it’s really hard for her.
      I do thank you for your prayers. God continues to be good to my mom. With the cancer she has no pain. NONE. Looks like her congestive heart failure will take her before any complications from the cancer.

    Unfortunately, I know firsthand just how difficult this period of time can be.

    Your faith and His love will see you through, no matter how hard this stretch of road is.
