After two months it was evident that going forward she would not recover and Mom would be a resident. Over the next few months Mom would start her end of life process. The summer months were really noticeable with the weight and memory loss. There would come a time that she would stop eating. It's a very difficult to witness the process. Other than myself she does get visits from the hospice team every other week.
Home life has changed a great deal as there is a real emptiness. The last 10 years I would have never thought being home alone would be my destiny. Mom was always there and I never even had to lock my doors. The TV and lights were always on when I left and returned. The next chapters begins.
On December 29, 2022 the life journey ended with little pain and suffering. I know in my heart she is in a better place. I’m left with no parents in America but do have a greater family and friends. She truly set up my life for success. Her hard work and giving spirit will be honored for all time.
The video below is when Mom first came to the East Coast. So many great memories.
