    the mother of my kid's best friend had a stroke and died this week. she was only 50 and her kid only 13.

    i suppose as mothers' worst nightmares go, this is #2 after the child being gravely ill or dying.

    made worse because she was a single mother...

    today mine is in hospital, getting tubes fitted into her body ready for dialysis.

    i'm not sure where this thread is going, and i'm not sure if i want to cry or punch someone. ok, it's me. punch someone. duh!

    but...yeah...mothers...

    Awww :( I'm sorry Dolfette, punch something. Kick the S**t out of it. I'm sure I would. I'm not a Mother so I can't even begin to understand how it would feel. I will hold your daughter in my prayers.

    I've always had the fear that I would leave my son alone...so I made arrangements that changed as he got older....
    Children are so much better at rebounding than us adults...he will be fine and the internet lets him keep in touch with friends.

    Yes I've seen you, kicking his butt and wiping his face on the floor in that thread:eek: I've just been laughing everytime I read it.

    Babies should never have to suffer in anyway shape or form.

    Poor kid. I can't imagine growing up without my Mum. And it must be a really hard time for you and your Mum as well Dolf. My Nan had to have dialysis - not fun. Really feeling for you right now.

    "Even bad men love their mommas." -Russel Crow in 3:10 to Yuma.

    Ive been to that point where you wonder if your mom is going to make it. Mine is epileptic, I've seen her seizure, its terrible to watch. I feel for you as your mom goes through something life threatening.

    I hope you can be strong for her, I had to be for my mom. Unfortunately my sister was an emotional mess, so I'm left directing and making sure the proper people are contacted and that my mom is safe. Its a lot to do when I was 14.

    I hope your mom is ok and that everything turns out well for your family. No one wants to lose a mom.

    I'm pretty sure that I understood you, but it's been addressed both ways...
    Is it your Mother or daughter that is having dialysis?

    It doesnt have to go anywhere. But you put it out, and that may be a way of dealing with it. You could now be in peoples prayers, or at least in their concern.

    Sometimes we all need our hand held for a moment. It doesnt mean you are weak. It just shows that we are there for you.

    I will hold the punching bag for you. Punch away.
