One Tough Lady!!!

This picture was taken on Dec. 28th, four days after my Mom was admitted to hospital. That morning the doctor told us she only had a few more days to live because of end stage renal failure. Well, he obviously doesn't know my we are 12 days later & she is still with us!  Must be the good Irish blood! She is slowly slipping away...sleeping most of the time now but she is not suffering at all. The nursing staff has been amazing with her & all of our family. Hug a nurse today! Thanks to those of you who have left lovely comments....they really mean alot to me!

  8. Oh Renee, I am so sorry for your loss, what a wonderful photo of you both and one to cherish.
    How sad it is when our loved ones get old or poorly and we feel so helpless to help but just do all that we can.
    But how wonderful that your Mum had you to love and care for her until the end ,you were such a good daughter.
    Your Mum certainly was made of strong stuff to have hung on so long , good Irish stock !!.
    My Mum is hanging on to life as I write.
    Biggest hugs to you and your family , I am sorry I was not around to write to you earlier. Biggest hugs Elaine
