My mom passed on today at 2:20pm.
She fought esophageal cancer for the last 2 years. She developed a hole in her esophagus. After a stent was placed, her left lung collapsed due to a fistule(?) blocking the airway into that lung. We, as a family elected to have the ventilator removed after it was determined that she would not be able to breath on her own. Pneumonia setting in due to aspirating into her lungs, infection, and the spread of cancer into her lungs made for a tough battle. She hadn't swallowed food in almost 2 years.
She was predeceased by my dad in '77, he died at 36 and left mom with 5 kids, she was 33 at the time. I hope she is with him.
I do believe that Christ died for our sins and that she is with Him...but I miss her already.
I love you mom!
