Mom here. Jill died Thursday morning at 12:30 am. She would have needed more surgery and a colostomy bag for the rest of her life. She said no. She was at peace with her decision. She was taken off the respirator Wednesday. I am grateful that she did not linger. I like to think my son has a guardian angel in heaven now, but there is a hole in all of our hearts.
My mother has lost one of her best friends. I know she is not a consistent blogger, but your condolences to her would be much appreciated. You can find her here, at Studio Jeanne.
I will get back to visiting soon, but right now I need a little time and I have a very sad boy to comfort. Thank you for all your prayers and thoughts. I am sure they are the reason Jill was able to listen to all the words of love my mother spoke to her these last few days.
