Default Mom may be passing-on soon.

Got a call from my sister in Tampa last night. She said my 99 year old mother is failing. She's comfortable and lucid, but her doctor said it looks like she is shutting down. So I'm off to Florida tomorrow. Will be there at least a week. Hope I get there in time. Just wanted to let you guys know I'll be off for a while. Go hug YOUR mother.

Sorry to hear it, glad she's comfortable. Sometimes all we can do is make it as easy as possible for them. You and yours will be in my thoughts.

Well said Turtle. I'm very sorry to hear that onehorse. To live as long as your mom has is truly a blessing. Safe travels to you MR. onehorse.

Thanks. Your thoughts mean a LOT to me. Mom is still comfortable, but this really is the end. I have to return to Montana on Tuesday, but my sister has support from the hospice folks - and family here in Florida. Thanks again, guys, see you when I get back to Montana.
