    My 98 year old mother passed away May 24. She was in her own place (assisted living) until her last night. She's been sleeping a lot and not eating much. I got a call at 815pm saying she was short of breath and EMS was taking her to the local ER (special geriatric one). They gave her some morphine and a sedative to calm her excessively high heartrate and she fell asleep around midnight. She passed away at 215pm the following afternoon without regaining consciousness. I don't know if the morphine helped her along but everything was for the best. It was the happiest wake that I've ever been to. To live to 98, still have your memory and mind, and to spend all but your last night in your own bed. It doesn't get any better than that!
    I would have to agree...……...condolences on your mothers passing...…...never a good thing no matter the age...…...

      Sorry to hear about your Mother. Mine passed in 1997. Melanoma finally took her. Dad passed in 2013. He was not in good shape as he had Parkinson's and Alzheimers. We are all blessed if our parents are around a long time. Remember the good times.

          My condolences and sympathy for you. I had my mother pass a few years ago, and since then also my father and my wife's mother. These can be troubling events sometimes. Also rather sobering when it hit's home there no one left in the generation before you and now you are, will be "it".

            BTW, I've noticed we have a few sub-forums that had threads and such before the change over to the new system/format and that content seems to have been lost (???).
