I hate goodbyes with a passion. I don't like leaving people & I don't like people leaving me. This was a hard goodbye for me. I visited my mom in the hospital every single day I was in Utah. I even drove 40 minutes each way with all 5 of my kids by myself to see her. THAT'S how important my mom is to me. Leaving was horrible.
I AM happy to leave when she is doing SO WELL though. In the month and a half I spent in Utah she went from being in a coma on a respirator fighting for her own life to walking with a walker, talking, completely alert & awake, & able to do things on her own fairly well. In a matter of weeks she'll be home again & on the road to recovery.
I just want my sweet mother to know how much I love her. She is my HERO in every way. She is an example of the person I want to someday be. She is a fighter, a survivor, a strong warrior that can overcome all odds against her. She is amazing, beautiful, loving, funny, & perfect in every way.
I'm SO PROUD of you mom.
I love you & miss you terribly but I'll see you soon.
Christmas can't come soon enough.
