I wrote my first post June 16th of this year.Today my mother went into a coma. The last 5 months have been an exhausting journey.
I do want to thank SG for writing a response to my post. I kept remembering that there would come a day I was thankful for my endurance. I am already feeling that way.
Shortly after my mother got so sick in June, my father-in-law had a stroke and began a similar end of life journey. They are both dying in different nursing homes. My role is now one of witnessing their transformation, and I know they will make it safely. I have been there for both of them, and it feels really good to know that. My father and my mother-in-law died a few years ago. It is very consoling to know they will be there to "take over" for me.
The past 5 months has left me drained and numb, but in a strange way I feel full of my own healing from it. I have done a lot of "finishing" and a lot of processing. Please keep me in your thoughts as I facilitate their "last lap".
Incidently-- this site taught me that playing games gave me moments for refocus and relief from the heaviness. So thanks for teaching me that.
