Finally came out of my fog from pain meds, actually took the pills Friday night, slept Saturday, Sunday and Sunday evening,,
got a phone call from my friend, the one that went to Florida with me,, her mom died this morning,, I knew she was close, her renal output was only 50cc Saturday,, this poor woman was suffering from dementia for about five years now,, she is 89,,, Bless her heart, she is out of it now,, Karen just said they were leaving to make the rest of her arrangements,,,
I remember when I was growing up, I wondered what it is like to actually lose a parent,, then when it happened to me, I became a new member in the club of people who "KNOW"..
until it happens, nothing can explain the emotions,, it is very surreal, seeing a form, but all of a sudden there is nobody there, physically,,,

All we can do is be there for the person,, be a friend...

    Linda I was there in that dreadful moment, a phone call Mother in a coma from an accident. I flew to England when they said she regained consciouness and went to my mothers side a week after I got there we went in to see her unconscious again after 64 days in a coma she regained consciousness and one week later she died.

I held her hand as she stopped breathing. I am actually so proud I did that. My stepfather held her other hand and we waited till the end. I was there for her and for him because he was so amazingly supportive of her during those 64 days. He was disabled himself but he went at 6.00am and left at 8.0pm. that was love and dedication. I think that was the first time I really respected his love for her.
YES it is awful to have to let a loved one go. It is a devastating relief. She was 53 years young and in her happiest years. Such a sin. HUGS, Your friend will remember her mother as I remember mine.

HUGS, really big hugs Linda,Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticonPAT oxxoxo

    I think you're right. emoticon The two pills taken at once does sound like too much.

    We should always listen to our inner body and not necessarily what the doctor says. We know ourselves better than anyone.

    Hi linda, sorry to hear things are not going well with the body right now. I hope you get some answers soon. I am searching for a new Dr I wish I could go without but I can't so I begin my search on Monday.
Be sure you either take all your meds with you ar make a list of meds and any supplements.

I am thinking of how much I have changed over the past ten years,, laterally, mentally and spiritually.. I love being with my friends and learn more about my faith, stories about how they grew in their faith and all of our everyday miracles..
Why do I have such negative thoughts so often? Why do I not find more nice thigns about people? Why do I procrastinate?
Why is this blog so boring?????????????LOL!! Just random useless thoughts,, lost the key to my diary, so putting this stuff here,,

    LINDA your blog was not boring it was very insightful because now you know yourself so much better. emoticon

You have actually found your strengths and weaknesses and dear LINDA that is such good progress. emoticon Go with it.

If this wasn't meant to be funny please forgive me for laughing.

As for your last questions? why the negative thoughts? Think about it for a minute. Your upbringing and yoru sweet loving mother ahs something to do with this. Same goes for me.
Hang in there hon! It's getting better.

    It takes a long time to make big changes. As long as you don't give up, you will get to your goals some day. Everyone is down sometimes, and tomorrow will be a better day.
