Just her and the lord now

Just wanted to update anyone that is curious. My mom has stopped all preventive measures and is now DNR. She has been like this since Monday around noon, shortly after she decided she declined very quickly and the doctors gave her 24-72 hours. Its now past that time and she is still here with us, but barely. I dont know how she is still fighting, not eating, drinking and barely able to breath...she is a fighter even after throwing in the towel. My brother is coming on Friday, we hope she makes it to then so she can hear his voice and his arms around her one last time. To everyone that has texted me asking me how everything is going, you have no idea how much it means to me and my family. Who would have thought people you have never met could care so much about you and your family to take time out and check in on you. If you have texted me and I did not respond I am sorry, but will get back to you when my brain clears some. I may be inactive here real soon, but will be available via text anytime. I wish there was more I can do, but there is nothing as its between her and the lord now. Again, thanks to everyone.

    In our prayers. May her decision to be with God and the time be right for her. No matter what you will feel the loss and will keep you in our prayers.

    People do like to say farewell before they go. They are often readier than are the people close to them.

    Good luck.

    Stay strong, stay with her as much as possible, keep talking to her until your brother gets there, I'll bet that's what she's hanging on for. Saying a prayer for you.

    From what I have seen on here you are a strong man and it appears that you get this from your mom. May the grace of god be with you now and always.

    after a long fight, she has crossed the bridge to a better pain free place. She passed last night around 11:00 P.M. Thank you for all the well wishes and prayers, I know she appreciated it as much as I do.
