My Mom Passed Away Last Night

Some of you are aware I have been helping care for my mother who has been at home but in hospice since September 2013. I had to cut back on my host duties and have not been on RB as much as I had been because my mom was basically paralyzed and needed constant care and assistance.

My Mom passed away a few hours ago. She lapsed into a coma sometime early on Friday the 15th AM and I went to be with her and my sister from 5:30am to about 2:30pm. She was in a coma but moaning constantly – it was quite upsetting and she was SO uncomfortable. I was disappointed that the morphine did not take the edge off. I spent most of the time by her bed reading Psalms to her and put on very relaxing music in the background.

I planned to go over tonight to sleep on the sofa in the room where her bed was so I would be with her in the night – and then my sister texted me about 10pm and told me to come right over because Mom was passing. I got there only minutes after she had passed. As I drove over I audibly HEARD her calling me – you may think it is crazy but it happened, and when I got to the house we determined the time I HEARD her voice was the time she passed. She was calling me asking me if I was coming and to hurry up.

time of her passing was Nov 15th 10:12pm

I am SO grateful she is finally out of pain and with those loved ones that have already passed that she often talked about and wished she could join. My sister and I go to the funeral home tomorrow AM to make final arrangements. Our pastor and dear friend was with us early this AM and tonight. It has been a very long few months and I am so glad her pain is over. and very happy she is with Jesus at last.

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss…and I do believe you heard her! Praying for you and your family. We have something in common…Nov. 15 was the 3rd anniversary of my Dad’s passing, but I, too, am so glad he is no longer in pain. Godspeed to you!

    So very sorry for your loss, Jane. I totally believe you heard her call – our daughter had a very similar experience when her beloved grandfather (my father) passed away. You’re in my thoughts.
