I think I let you guys know at one point that she was terminally ill, but we were hoping she would make it another year. and this past month to two months she has been REALLY good, no hospitalizations or anything. We actually bought a plane ticket for her to come visit us, she was going to be here this coming saturday at 4PM, she wanted to watch corbin be born and stay a few weeks.

I talked to her for 4 hrs on Saturday morning, and we were both just so excited we couldnt stand it, I was going to see my mommy in a WEEK!!!!

An hour after we said goodbye for now, my step dad called and told me she was rushed to the ER via ambulance for excrucating pain. I was hoping it was something minor. But when he got to the hospital they told him to expect the worse, and she probably wouldnt make it through the night. She was in a coma and had had a hemorrhagic stroke, which is a more rare kind of stroke, and usually kills its victims within 48 hrs. Her brain was filled with blood. She held on for 23 hrs, she was such a fighter, she passed away yesterday at 12:15PM and my heart aches so much. We talked almost every day, and waking up this morning knowing I will never hear her voice again kills me. I have an appointment tomorrow, and it kills me that I dont get to come home and update her on it. She is coming home on Saturday to us, but in an urn. My brother is there now, dealing with everything and getting her special belongings. It was so hard not being able to be there, I didnt get to say goodbye, I didnt get to give her that one last hug and kiss, I just miss her. I am so sorry to bring you all down. But I wanted to let you guys know.

I have no idea if I will be super active to take my mind off things, or MIA, if I am MIA this is why. if I go MIA will let Patty know and will step down as host. Love you all, and so sorry for such a sad post.

Oh Heather... I am sooo sorry

Your mom will be with you when Corbin is born. She will be with you every day for the rest of your life. When you want to talk to her.... talk to her...she will hear you. She was very lucky to have you for a daughter.

If you need anything just ask. I am sorry you lost her too soon. I am sure she is smiling down from heaven while holding your angel. I am sure she will take good care of him until you get there.

Heather, I'm so sorry. I do remember you telling us all about your mom. I'm so glad you got to have such a long chat with her that day. I know it doesn't make it easier, it's obvious she was your best friend.

We completely understand if you are mia but no matter will be keeping you and your family in my heart and prayers.

God bless hun

please take all of the time that you need hon, we understand completely and will be here for you always....
