  1. My heart breaks to hear this news. My prayers are with the family. I am just so sorry. Dana
  2. I have to post here. My mom past in December. I have had one dream of her and we just hugged no words. It was wonderful but I have been so discouraged lately because I feel I should "feel" her more. I want to feel her more then anything, to hear her voice, receive a sign I know is from her. I believe in my heart it will come with time. I believe with all my heart that our loved ones are with us. I also believe in time, as the heart will allow, we will get the signs we are longing for. I just talked with a good friend of mine about this and she believes that right now I am searching and seeking a 'big' sign and in the process missing all the little ones. My heart is with you and I completely understand Dana
  3. (((Katie))) I have had trouble sleeping starting 2 years ago when my mom was first diagnosed. I have trouble ever since. I have a similar use with over the counter sleep aids. I find when I take them I wake up fine but by afternoon I am dragging. If it is the weekend and I take a nap...I really don't sleep! I wish I had an answer......... I am sure you are correct about the time of year. April 15th was my first birthday without my mom. I just wanted the day to end. Please know my thoughts are with you! The work you do here is amazing. I can honestly say it is this sight that has seen me through some of my toughest days. I could never thank you enough! Dana

    The last first

    Nick, OK first....she is beautiful, and I love that you see a piece of your mom in her. Though, I am not as far down this road as you are(2 months without my mom), I understand! I do believe your mom is will be there celebrating with you! As dedicated of a mom as she was...she wouldn't miss it! Enjoy that special day, as a mom of a 13 and 11 year old, trust me when I say the time flies! Happy Birthday, Dana
  12. First my heart is so very heavy! I am so sorry to hear this development. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Hospice came in for my mom. They were wonderful to her and our family. My mom had many of the same fears and we were reassured that with the proper meds she would be comfortable and pain free. I can say they succeeded and my mom passed very peacefully. My mom shared her fears and feelings with us and we made sure those wishes were followed, especially when she couldn't on her own. Knowing her wishes made it easier for us to make decisions. Let hospice and your family know your fears and your wishes. You and your family are in my prayers. Dana

    Still waiting

    It has been 7 weeks since my mom passed. I still expect to hear her voice on the phone. I pick up the phone to call her. I cry at least once a day. I just am not sure how to go forward. Don't get me wrong...I am working and going to sports with the kids and doing all those things....but there are times it just feels I am going thru the motions. There are even times I feel guilty. The world keeps going even though for me it feels like it should have stopped. It a sense it did! I can't really explain it...I just know it makes my heart ache to know that there are so many others here who will understand! No words needed! I just don't know how to move forward.......... Is it going to be a "NEW" "new normal" WIll it ever be "normal" to not have my mom. I am 34 and my mom isn't here.....I still need her! Thank you for letting me ramble! Dana
  14. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful tribute. My prayers are with you. Dana
  15. AManda, I am so sorry to hear of your dads passing. I lost my mom this past Dec. Your dad was such an inspiration. Many times he would post just the right words. It was like he knew just what to say to help. His knowledge was so vast and he was always ready to share. Your dads legacy lives on. As you can see.....if was loved by many here. As a daughter who recently lost a parent... I pray you find peace and comfort in the memories. Please know we are also here for you if you need us! Dana
