Loss of My Mom

My mom died on 6/20/07.  She was 46 going to be 47 in November.  I am 26 and have 2 young children.  I feel completely lost.  I talked to her 5-6 times a day and saw her everyday because she watched my children while I worked.  She took Enbrel for her arthritis, which weakens your immune system.  On Friday 6/15 she felt sick and by Sunday 6/17 she was on a ventilator.  I never got to talk to her again. She has pneumococcal pneumonia, ARDS, Kidney failure and sepsis. It all happened so fast, I talked to her on Thurs 6/14 and she was fine. 

On Wed. 6/20 we had to make the decision to take her off the ventilator because she wasn't getting any oxygen to her brain.

I miss her so much it hurts.  She always told me it was her and I against the world and now she is gone.

I feel for you I really do! I am sorry that you didn't get to say goodbye, I am 27 and have 2 girls and my mom was gone in 15 months start to finish and that was hard. I couldn't imagine it happening practically overnight.
