    Tomorrow will be 1 month. I am in shock. I feel waves of grief. It is the first thing that pops in my mind when I wake up. My mama had a small breast cancer found on a routine mammogram in December 2023. She had surgery for this in January. We were told it was tiny. She's going to do great. We had 5 rounds of radiation in March. She developed COVID during this and became short of breath. After a couple of trips to the doctor right before Easter and no improvement with the shortness of breath. We went to the hospital. She was in atrial fibrillation. This led to scanning for a blood clot. She did have a blood clot. While doing this scan, she was found to have a large mass on her kidney, a small one on her lung and a small one on her spine. She made the decision for comfort care. She was gone 5 days later.

    I am very sorry about the unexpected loss of your mother. It is a shocking thing to happen so quickly when you expected her to recover. Your mother was veyr special to you and you are now walking down the path of grief.
    It is a painful walk and not to be rushed. Be good to yourself. Take good care of yourself.
    Try to get out for short walks to get fresh air and see nature. God's beautiful creation helps in our healing.
    The scriptures say, "Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might."
    When you are weak, remember that your strength will come from Jesus who loves you with an everlasting love.
    He will help you when you can't help yourself.
    I care about you.
    Chris

    Chris, thank you. It was so sweet of you to reply. I do pray a lot about my grief and especially my Daddy. I worry about him so much. He has been so upset and lost. My husband is so sweet and supportive. I sometimes think I can't talk about it enough. I just want to take the hurt away for Daddy and myself.

    In the beginning of this grief walk, our loss is all we can think about.
    I am so glad to hear that your husband is supportive. Sometimes it is hard for others, even in the family, to really understand why we are grieving so much. I am so thankful that is not the case with your husband. You are blessed.
