    Esophageal cancer. This is not unexpected but it is still something to deal with. I am to go to the mortuary in the morning to make arrangements.
    She was 98 and had had a good life and it was time for her to go but .....
    I guess I'm still processing things myself.
    Could use prayers and good thoughts sent our way.

    So sorry... Even if it was expected, the experience of expecting something to happen, and the actual experience itself, are very different. Be gentle with yourself... Prayers and hugs being sent your way... SFR

    No matter how old or how sick, it's still your mom and it's a lot to process, as you said. Hugs of consolation and strength for you in this time of mourning. You're a good daughter, you should be very proud of that. You did everything you could to make her comfortable and that's a blessing.
