After thinking my mom would no longer be able to com visit us anymore. She gave us a call in September to visit us for Christmas. we were shocked, happy and so scared she wasn't going to make it for the big day. Dec 13th came and mom arrived at her home. I was still very happy and also scared knowing this was indeed her last trip. But did not want to accept it. We had a great mother daughter visit and even got to do some baking. The 28th came and it was time for her to go home. I never go to the airport, because I get to emotional and do not want to upset her more. She arrived in Ab. She said she was fine but a little tired. She gave a few calls wondering when we were coming. The day before New years eve she left a message on our machine She missed and loved us all and if my husband could phone her. He never go to make the phone call she ended up in the hospital with pnuemonia. My brother called on the 2nd and said it didn't look good. I immediately flew out and got to see for 14.5 hours. Then she was gone!!. I had avery nice good bye with her. I should be happy she is in peace but I feel empty, loss and wished I had more time with her at christmas. I cannot stop crying or thinking about her!. She was my best friend, mom and rock.
