My sincerest blessings for you and your family. I'm sorry for your loss. Those of us who can, should take the time to tell our Mothers that we love them at some point today. I know I will.

I'm very sorry for your loss and I know that nothing we can say to you is going to make you feel better, but think that now she is in peace and surely in heaven with your dad.
I'm also an only child and I have thought about this matter thousands of times and I know I won't be prepared when it happens but it's inevitable.
If you need someone to talk, remember that me and all the others tankers are here for you.

Man that's rough. I lost my mom in 2003, my dad about a year ago, and my grandmother in May of this year so I know what it's like and you have my sympathies.
I have two pieces of advice for you, for what it's worth. First, let go of the regret. I get that it's kind of a natural reaction but it's a waste of energy and, sadly, won't change anything. It'll just make you feel worse.
Secondly, try to find a way to take something positive out of the tragedy. I know that may seem impossible at the moment but it helped me alot. For me it was perspective. When my mom died, it gave me the ability to better determine what was important and what warranted getting upset over. It's served me very well ever since and made me feel that even though she was gone she was still teaching me stuff. I'll give an example. I had a really good friend who I hadn't talked to in a few years over something really stupid. I ran into her at a wedding for a mutual friend a few months after my mom died and suddenly couldn't care less about whatever it was we argued over in the first place. We're better friends now than we ever have been.
Perspective will keep you from going out of your mind.

I'm sorry to hear that. I'm an only child to, I still have my parents but I lost my Grandparents within a year of each other and I can feel where your coming from. We had to make the decision at some point as well if we should use a feeding tube for my Grandfather but like you we realized it was not something that he would of wanted.
My only advice is to take comfort in your friends, family members and others who love you. Also take comfort in yourself because your parents are within you and will always be there.

My condolences to you and your family, I can't imagine what you are going through. I urge everyone here to go visit your mom or grandmother or anybody that helped shaped who you are.

I am very sorry about that, my father went to the hospital in the beginning of November and he is around the age your mom was. Lucky he is home and doing okay.

I put together a living will for my friends and loved ones. If I am relying on machines to keep me alive I have told them to end it. I have told a few people about it, and my gf put up the biggest fight: I told her to respect a dieing man's last wishes.
