“I am your mother not your excuse…” brave words spoken by a true warrior!

Last night at 23:30 I received a BBM from Jared (Vic’s eldest son) “Oumie I want to ask you something and please be completely honest with me.”  I replied: “I will always be honest with you my angel” to which Jared replied “Oumie is Mommy’s time close?”

Tonight we had a family round table.  WE spoke about Vic’s imminent demise, how it would likely happen, a possible sequence of events…we spoke about the fact that there is nothing unsaid between us; that the boys would remain with me and then Vic told them that she is their mother – not an excuse for bad marks or poor behaviour…

We cried.

Vic is vomiting blood.  The pain is excruciating and she is weak and very, very tired.  How much longer before this hell ends?Image
