Mom

Friday, March 26, 2010

My mom died February 19th at home...she was already packed and ready to live in a senior community in her home town of Hemet California...but she did not make it and she was so excited to go and meet new people. My brother in law found her cold and non responsive on her bedroom floor with her beloved Beagle, Casey...Casey would not leave her side until the mortuary came and had to pry her off of mom...I guess Casey was protecting her because it's always unconditional love with all animals..We buried mom on February 26th which would have been her 91st birthday...Now, mom was not only the best mom ever but she was also my best friend and I would call and talk sometimes 2-3 times a day and I guess right now after a month after her burial I still want to pick up the phone and tell her what recipe I just tried or ask her something about if she had experienced something that I had not and what to do? I just can't believe that I will never hear her voice ever again..Mom I miss and love you very much..And, I will remember all the wonderful things you said and taught me...thank you for being my mom!

    I'm sorry to read of your loss. I still (15 yrs. after his death) pick up the phone to call my Father. Those moments decrease with time, and yet... the loss is still so great.

Praying for you & yours.

    Give sorrow words; the grief that does not speak whispers the o'er-fraught heart and bids it break. ~William Shakespeare

Keep talking about your mom. Keep telling her stories. Keep talking to your mom. Keep telling her stories.

    May God Bless you now. I still have my mom. She is going through chemo right now. So, I do appreciate the time I spend with her. I am with her during her chemo treatments and I wouldn't take that time away for anything. But, reading your blog made me appreciate her and the time spent with her even more. I am so sorry for your loss.

    So sad to lose a loved one, but how lucky for your mom to have passed in her own home without a lingering illness. She will always be a part of your life in cherished memories

    My mom was my best friend as well as mom so I know somewhat you are feeling. It has been 8 yrs since Mom passed away. It has gotten easier as time passes but there are still days when I reach for the phone to call her. My prayers are with you and your family. It does get easier over time. emoticon emoticon

  When my mom went someone said to me "We are never old enough to lose our mothers". So true. My sympathies. emoticon

My Cat

Tuesday, February 09, 2010

My Cat Popokie (means cat in Hawaiian) is 14 yrs. old and will be 15 in May and all of a sudden he could not jump up to get his food or the bed and or the couch, I mean what's going on? This started last Friday and continued to get worse by the day. Sunday he was walking around like he was drunk, would not eat and was not drinking much water! I could hardly wait until 8:30am Monday morning to take him to the vet. Well, not what I thought and I don't think he really knows for sure, he gave him a Cortisone shot in case and it cost $93.00 which I don't care it's my baby however went back today and he still doesn't know for sure, he gave him an IV to prevent dehydration because he still is not eating, also took a blood test and we found out in 10 minutes from the blood test that his kidneys, liver and heart are perfectly fine. Humans pay far more and wait far longer, now I ask you does somebody know something we don't! So Today it cost me $107.00 and no we do not have Insurance for our pets or ourselves. Now, Popokie is walking around with this big saline bulge where the Vet gave him the shot, he looks at both of us as if to say "what have you guys done to me". Please, please animal Jesus or God! help our beloved child (pet).

    I really understand part of what you are going though......after my favorite cat, Sandy, had the stroke we did everything we could for him......the vet even gave him hepirin to thin his blood hoping to clear us a clot he had......It was so sad that I think I cried for a couple of days, and it still bothers me 17 years later......when I found him in the morning he was paralyzed from the waist down due to a clot.........we hung on to him for two days at the vet, but he kept going downhill so we had the vet put him to sleep.......I still feel the pain of doing that........And the one I have now is 17 and she is beginning to slow down a lot, and is not eating right and has lost quite a bit of weight.......we are keeping an eye on her, but I think age is catching up with her.......hopefully she will hang on for quite a while yet.......

    Thank you for the comment on my page.
You look wonderful! And you run long distances. And I hope that someday I can!!!

Results are not the biggest motivator for me, just knowing that I can accomplish what I set out to do.

Thank you for your inspiration and I hope that you pain decreases.
