I am sorry to hear you've lost your son. He was well loved by a mother who gave him her all.

JustMary, reading your post brought tears to my eyes I'm so sorry for your loss.

Reading from your post, I think you did everything you could for your son. It's always hard looking back because there are things you wish you did, or changed, please don't feel guilty though. I think focusing on your health is something your son would have also want you to do too. I hope you have support to make it through this difficult time, also know you have a community here with people who will support you.

I am so sorry for your loss. To attempt to console you, I want you to know that I have had several relatives that died in the hospital as soon as family members left. One nurse told us that many patients hang on to life when there are loved ones in the room, but allow themselves to pass on as soon as they are alone. My best friend and her siblings took turns staying at their elderly mother's bedside after she had a stroke. When she left the hospital for ten minutes to meet her cousins in the lobby and bring them to her mother's room, her mother passed. And, the doctor told her that they frequently see that.

Thoughts and prayers to you.

Oh Mary I am so very sorry. Your son knew you loved him. I lost my son in August. Feel free to send me a personal message if you ever need someone to listen. We are all hugging you. I hope you can feel it.

Mary, how awful What a heartbreaking story. Poor Gary! I hope you can heal from this (as much as a parent can heal from the death of their child) and will be thinking of you.

I can't even fathom losing a child. I went through something similar and I never dealt with it properly. Please go to grief counseling. Be patient and kind to yourself. I'm so sorry.

I am so sorry for your loss. I understand how you get used to being a caretaker, and then when your job is over, what do you do? Please take care of yourself.
