Two Years

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I find myself on the eve of the second anniversary of Mom's death and I can hardly believe that two years ago I was keeping vigil over her wondering when her suffering would end.

I remember trying to sleep beside her bed and listening for every change in her breathing. It was a long, long night - but boy, what I would give to just hear her breathe again!!

Like most people, I've found a way to cope and to be happy again. I guess it's become about re-building my life while acknowledging that a very major piece of the puzzle is missing. It can be beautiful and meaningful, but it does feel different. Boy, does it ever. I miss her ever so much.

I also want to thank those of you who supported when I most needed it. I continue to be grateful to you for your wise counsel and your words of encouragement. I lurk on this site regularly and though I post only occasionally, I send you all my love and prayers. This disease can, and will, be beaten.

It is good to see you here, and to hear how you are doing. I'm glad you're still trudging along, living and thriving.

I so remember that feeling of listening for Mom's next breath... and when I think of that I can't believe it's been almost two years for me too...

But I also know exactly what you mean about finding life to be beautiful and meaningful but so different.

((((hugs)))) to you as you process the two year mark.
