December 5, 2006 I lost my only brother to degenerative brain disease. Now, a year later, I am watching as my mother gets closer and closer to death each day. My dad passed away in 1983 and soon, Mom (a Hospice patient)will join my brother and Dad. I have no other siblings. Alzheimer's and Parkinson's has stripped Mom of any quality of life and the decline was so fast. I am terrified of life without her; she has always been my inspiration, my best friend, my life. I want to be able to talk with her again, see her smile, laugh with her again. But, it seems God's plans are different than mine. Mom has begun not eating and resisting taking her meds. She is drinking very little and I know that as frail as she is, she can't fight much longer. Please pray that she passes peacefully and sits with God and watches over me and my family. I miss her so much already, I can't imagine what it will be like without her.
