My Mom died this morning

Post by Foxhunter » Friday, 11 July 2008, 18:42 PM

Hi all I wanted to make a brief post in my Mom's honor. My Mom died this morning July 11, 2008 at 9:40AM with me here at her home literally in my arms. She died in a terrible way with terminal illness and wouldn't wish it on anyone. Cancer had ravaged her for the last year almost yet we'd only known the last 5 months. She'd been misdiagnosed and been treated by a careless doctor with whom she'd had total trust in for years as he'd told her she only had some nerve irritation, all the while she was developing cancer while it was treatable.

I've had the time here and there to post the last few months, as I'd come here to stay and take care of my Mother. She was living alone for quite some time. My Sister and I both put our lives on hold to provide our own homecare and even hospice care----totally doing it ourselves----for months, until near the very end when we called upon outside help, as to not let her suffer without outside care. Barbara Mary (Whitman) Groves aged 67 is my Mom and will be missed dearly. She died a pretty horrible death but I was glad to help her throughout it all in anyway I could. Will always miss her.

You have my heartfelt condolences my CB friend. I can say with all honesty that I feel your pain. I lost my mother to cancer and then 4 hours later my father died in his sleep. It will get better with time, but not quickly. I wish you and your sister well. Just keep reminding yourself she is at peace and in a better place now.

Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O Lord God of truth.
-Psalms 31:5


Lee, I pray that you are comforted in the knowledge that your mom doesn't have to suffer any longer.


It's really hard for me to sit here and type these words of encouragement for you without thinking of my dad that died 3 years ago as of this coming Sunday. The saying of "time heals"... well, I have to say that isn't quite true. Time gets in the way so you don't reflect as often. But Remember; Everything for a reason.

-Romans 8:28:
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to [his] purpose.

May God watch over you and comfort you and your family.


Respectfully,
Shawn - Alabama Cajun

Man, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Cancer has taken the life of a few of my family and I know how horrible it is, and my prayers go out to your family. I know it doesnt mean much to you now in this time, but it is really great that your Mom has some good kids to stick with her and be there and look after her during this time. My wife works in a nursing home and you wouldnt believe how many people are so caught up in themselves that a parent ends up dying alone or doesnt have hardly anyone to visit them. She obviously has raised you and your sister up the right way!!

Sorry to here this. You and your family are in our prayers. Your mother would be proud of you to stand by her like you did. That's very commendable and although it's a terrible thing that happened, you can have some peace knowing that you were with her as she passed. God Bless you and your family and your Mom.

i'm so very sorry for your loss. i will say a special prayer of you and your family. boy i tell ya so to often it happens with the family doc. so many times our older family members have been going to the same doc's for years and put there total trust in them not realizing into days world medicine has gotten so specialize and those guys like auto mechanics have to retrained from time to time something that the old time general practitioner does not always stay abreast on. i had an Uncle that thought the sun rise and set on his doc and he was missed diagnosed for cancer to. this guy was treating him for a back cold when he had developed lung cancer by the time it got to the point when the doc figured he needed more test because it was not getting better it was too late the cancer had spread to far. medicine is a specialized art nowadays and we can't take for granted that all doctors were also A students in there class. please folks with older or even young folk that maybe sick please always get that second or third opinion. FoxHunter may GOD be with you & your Family.

Something some of what is lost as I see the next generations becoming of age, is the lost of respect for the family and respect for society. It takes a man to accept responsibility and humbleness to take care of th elder family members, when its real easy to just put them in a hospice or elderly care home. I salute you and I send all my Aloha and prayers to you and your Ohana(family) . My condolences. John(31)

I am so sorry to hear that bad news my friend, words can almost not express.
Cancer is the new health epidemic.
I have seen 3 family friends succumb to the big C in the past several years.
My girlfriend is a survivor of stage 4 hodgkin's lymphoma
and her mom is now in the hospital with low white cells from the chemotherapy
she is getting after surgery for stomach cancer.
Sorry to hear that about your mom.

Thank You so very much for all you posts here I am grateful for everything you guys have said to me and hope that by fate some of you will manage to avoid such circumstances. I am sorry for those who posted who have gone through similar situations and for reminding you of them. And I will hope that for those of you who will have the experience of it all firsthand you will not lose sight of the fact that caring for someone in such a way is the ultimate experience in love and pain. God bless you guys for the things you've said. I thank Craig aka Trouble for his support all-along he's shown via PM he's an exceptional guy. The others who've written I also thank again I never expected it and it really helped to read so many different views on such an important milestone in my life. Thanks-------Lee



PS: Although I have 16 CB/Amateur radio's-----my all-time favorite will be a little Panasonic 23 Channel radio that my Mom bought new, and used for years before giving to me. It was my first CB radio and will be my best "Big" radio
