Losing my Mom

My mom and my sister Kelly

So here is the update on my mom. Her name is Jeanne and he has breast cancer for those of you who didn't know that. Any way she is going downhill fast. The cancer is taking over her body and on Friday we made the decision to put her in a hospice facility called Cherry Meadows. That was her wishes when she got to the stage she is at. Right now the cancer is taking over her brain. It is also ravaging her liver, lungs, and bones. She is on a lot of pain meds for the pain and as a result is not feeling much pain but on Friday things took a turn for the worst. Lately she has started forgetting things and losing her short term memory and Friday she started to not be very lucid. She had a breathing issue where she could not get enough oxygen and she started to panic and we had to get the nurses to come to the house and then she started acting very confused and disoriented and that's when the nurse suggested that it was time to send her to the hospice facility.
So according to the hospice nurses, basically it is just a matter of days or week or two until we lose her. Her body is losing the battle against the cancer. Please pray for my mom that she doesn't feel pain and please pray for my family as we deal with my mom's impending death.


  1. Tim -
    I've been following the updates on your mom for a little while now via your blog. She sounds like an incredible woman. Jake and I are both praying for her and your family.

  2. Praying for you...

  3. I love you Tim and your family. I'm sitting here in tears because I have to be so far from you and can't be the friend I need to be and give you the comfort you are in need of. I pray that God would watch over your family and give your mom peace. I pray He would come and take her swiftly home with no pain so you can both morn her loss and rejoice and praise God for her life and that she will be given a new body and healed beyond any of our imaginations.

    Call if you need to a friend. I'll answer the phone no matter the time of day or night.
