Over four years ago I found this forum after desperately looking for some answers to all the questions I had about my mom and the stroke she had suffered on top of her Parkinsonís of 20 years. Iíve been in and out of the conversation, sometimes posting and mostly just reading and learning and being encouraged knowing that other people understood what I was going through.
At first, I just wanted someone to tell me what was going to happen thinking that I would be able to cope better if I knew that answer. But as you all know, no one can tell you exactly what will happen with this disease. I can answer that question myself now, and I donít think that it would have helped me any to know then what I know now. Itís a process, and it had to happen a day at a time.
My mom passed away on November 2, peacefully, after over four years in a nursing facility. I still do not know how to describe those years. I will not try to sugar coat them (except to say that the nurses were wonderful there and became like family to us). I know that you all understand how terrible this disease is. But it is all over now and mom is no longer suffering. She endured so much.
I just wanted to thank you all for your words of encouragement and honesty and help over these past 4 years. Please keep it going for all those like me. It really was a lifeline during such a difficult time. THANK YOU!
