Mr. Right Sorry to hear man. I haven't had internet access for the past two months or so and never even caught this thread as I only have about 10 minutes a day at work to look at the info highway. I found my grandmother alive in her home almost a year ago after having a massive stroke and being alone in the house for two days suffering. My family had to make the choice to pull the plug because she would have lived off a machine for the rest of her life if not. May she rest in peace and be strong brother. You will always have memories of the good times and after a while remembering her will make you smile rather than cry. One day we will all die and our kin will be going through the same thing, at least she passed knowing you love her and that is the greatest gift of all.

Simply^Ride Thanks guys, I know, this is probably the best thing for her. Her condition was very bad at the end and she deserved better than that.

We are moving on.

My mom just got there today a few hours ago, it should be good for her to have a little vacation after this pasts months. Plus she gets to be with her family.

killclimbz Sorry to hear the news, death is one of those things we all deal with. You move on, but you never forget those who were close to your heart. May she RIP.

Simply^Ride Well guys the day finally came, after 1 1/2 months of horrible suffering, she gave up the fight last night at 3:00am. May she rest in peace, I guess all I can say she's in a better place now. The part that scares me is the after math, but only time will tell what the future holds for us.

On a brighter note, my mom had a trip planned to Colombia leaving tomorrow, so I guess it came at a good time. She really did not want to see her in her dying bed, don't get me wrong she loves her more than anything, but everyone knew she was going to die, it was just a matter of time.

At times I think she was preparing us for her death.

She was a wonderful lady and she will be missed.

killclimbz Sorry to hear that things are not going well on the mend. Unfortunately we all lose loved ones, friends, etc. We all know this is life. You still have my well wishes, and hopefully things go on the upswing for you.

sedition Sorry I got on this one late. My thoughts are with you and your family.

Simply^Ride I hate to post sad things in this forum, as this place is not designed for that. But I really need to vent out and I don't have anyone to vent out too. So here it goes...

Things took a turn for the worse, she is hanging on from a string. Last she almost died when they disconnected the oxygen to see if she could breath correctly. Now they are taking about opening a small whole in her throat to help her breath better. I don't want to see her suffer so much, I have mental thoughts of what she must be going through. I heard when she is desperate she moves the half of the body that is not paralyzed like crazy (she is in a somewhat conscious/unconscious/disorientated state). this is killing me .

Today my mom said something that left me out of breath for a few seconds, we were taking about the past about her, like about good memories. next thing I know she said this "yeah before she died and so on.....", after she said that I told her, shes not dead. What really scares me now, is that my mom is like a witch everything she says tends to always happen .

So many things are happening in the middle of this process, most everyone is fighting with each other for no reason .

She is an older lady, at this point I want her to rest to be in peace. But the idea of her dying does not process in my brain, this is the first time of my life I have to confront a situation like this and I feel useless.

Her favorite granddaughter is going to visit her tomorrow (she lives in another city and is in finals in the university) thats why she could not make it before. I cannot imagine what's going to happen to her when she sees her grandma like that I wish I could do something about it.....

once again I am sorry about posting here about my personal issues, but I have no one to vent too, an yet I have to remain strong for my mom.

Simply^Ride thanks.

At this we are starting to realize that maybe it might be better if she lets go... Every one who sees her say that she looks awfull, her eyes are disoriented and her face does not look normal. It seems half of her body is paralyzed, she cannot yet talk either. She moves her hands to express her self but that's about it, her heart is in a weak condition too.

I am holding on and strong, I have to, at least to keep my mom up and strong. I have never seen my mom in the condition she is, but there's nothing we can do at the time being.

We will keep our prayers going on and hope she comes out of it, but I honestly would not like to see her in a vegetable state.

Thanks for the support guys, I appreciated from the bottom of my heart.
