I am so sorry for your loss. Your Mom sounds a lot like mine, my cheering section. As I write, I am still recovering from reading your story. It has hit me hard. One of my biggest fears is losing my own mother. I don't know if I could be as brave as Bella (you). Thank you for sharing your story. You are a fantastic writer.

I sobbed reading this story.
You're a great writer and wrote an amazing piece of work. I loved your stories of the series "Stable" so I decided to read this one. This piece hits pretty close for me.
I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm sure your mom is proud of you. You've very strong person. You had the opportunity to spend every single moment with her until the end and to say everything you wanted. She gived you the all the chances and you did make good use of the time. Your mom was a very smart and intelligent woman.
I lost my mom too. I didn't get the chance to say anything important to her while she was at the hospital, I didn't know what to do and what to say, my shynness and stupidness ruined the very few moments I had with my mother while she was awake and conscious but couldn't talk because of the Tracheotomy, I avoided to go the hospital and when I did go I didn't say anything that mattered. When she died I was at school, while I was at the bus going back home I felt something and in someway I knew what happened, when I arrived at home my younger brother was the one who told me and I saw my father talking in the phone with someone and sobbing, a good friend was hugging him. My mother died after spending some weeks at the hospital including time at the ICU in coma. My father was at the hospital when she died but I don't know if he had the chance to say goodbye or something because she died during a surgery. Do you want to know what I felt? Nothing I was completely numb, my brother was the same, neither of us express emotions well. Obviously I did a very small resume. I carry the guilt until today, I knew the chance of survival was minimal, if she had survived she wouldn't be able to live a normal life. She suffered strokes and Aneurysms. My mom died in May 2001 (9 years ago). May has become an awful month for me, is the month my mother was born and died and everything happened in May, my father is born in May too.
So it wasn't a good idea to read this story today I'm sorry for the rambling or the emotional vent out hehehe
Now a not serious note. Edward is always a good presence.

Did you mom have pulmonary fibrosis? I'm sorry to ask, but my father had it, and what you describe in this piece reminds me a lot of his respiratory problems. He struggled for a year, then, well, I guess by some divine providence, had a heart attack and died before he could suffocate, which was his biggest fear.
You were lucky to be there with your mom when she passed. I wasn't there with Dad; I didn't get to say goodbye.
Today, being Mother's Day, must be hard, but I'm sure she's proud and watching over you.

*sobs* I was crying so hard as I read this that my little nephew came and cuddled me to make me feel better. You know you look sad when the one and half year old notices.

Amazing one shot. Brings back memories of when we took my paw paw off life support & he passed. It was also April 2006. One of the most touching one shots I've read. Awesome job.

This was such a beautiful story. And even more profound by the fact that you lost your mom and you can tell that this was really written from the heart. Thank you for sharing.

I'm really sorry for the loss of your mom.
I'm 14 and in november last year I lost my grandad, he was very healthy and went into the sea every saturday all year round. I even went into the sea with him every christmas morning. Until 3 weeks before he died we found out he had cancer, the last time I saw him was when the family all had dinner and when it was time to go he wanted me to go upstairs to say goodbye. Its really hard to stay strong for the people you love but I held back the tears even though it hurt.
I love you for writing this story, you were very brave and you kept strong for your mom. she would be very proud of you if she were here today.
lots of love from Jess
