Your post has left me in tears right now. Your story almost exactly mirrors my Grandmother's diagnosis with sclc. She passed away exactly a month ago. It was literally smack right at the beginning of my second semester of nursing school. I started my clinicals the day before she died. I was one of her primary care takers, and was the only person with her when she died. I understand the sadness and the snaps of periods of sadness.
I am so sorry for your loss. Just know we are all here for you as you make your progress through school. (Hugs)
Thank you for keeping us posted! You truly are an inspiration! Your mom is SO PROUD of you!!! Keep your head up and your eye on the prize, she is always with you!!
I extend my condolences. I too lost my mother to cancer at a very young age. I was only 18- I am now 24 years old and am pursuing a career in nursing. I am waiting to hear back from my school if I got accepted or not. I miss the emotional motherly support. Know that her strength is running through your veins, and know that you are making her proud in getting an education. It never gets easier, but just know that her love is with you always. If you would ever like to talk, message me.
I am so sorry for your loss, it is a terrible thing when you lose a parent and very hard to deal with. I cruise through these posts every once in awhile and I was really stunned when I saw your post because I am dealing with the same thing, except it was my Dad. He was diagnosed in Feb. '14 with lung cancer that had metastasized to his brain and to his liver. I was just accepted into nursing school for April and he was so proud of me... bragged to all the nurses that soon I would be one too. My father and I did not have a close relationship, not for a lack of me trying but it was what it was. He lived out of state and that was HARD. He had brain tumors in an area that made him a completely different person, he was angry and pushed all of his family away. I went through my first quarter of nursing school wondering everyday how he was and just wishing that he would talk to me. He passed on July 19th. He wanted no funeral, nothing. I never got to say goodbye, never got to have any resolution to our rocky relationship. He died an angry man with no family by his side. There is more to this story and he, of course, had help in his decision to alienate his family but I don't really want to get into that. I guess what I am trying to express is that you got to be there for your mother, you knew how much she loved you and how special you were to you. Right now it hurts and it will always hurt but in time you will be able to cherish those memories and find joy in them and peace. I always wanted my father to be proud of me. I still pursue my nursing career in honor of my Dad hoping some way he will know how much I loved him. I know you are doing the same and I am sure she is walking with you every step of the way. I understand your pain, I really do.
She passed away at the age of 57.
Thank you for giving us the privilege of reading about your wonderful mom! Your story brought tears to my eyes. She sounds like a great woman who raised you to be a strong, smart, loving person. It's very hard to get over losing a mom. Especially one that is as cared for as yours. You'll have to do as the old cliche says: take one day at a time. You will do great! It's what she expects from you and it seems like you've never let her down. She will help you through this year. I think she already has...you got your first choice assignment ;-). Good luck to you and keep the faith. She's looking down on you and probably pointing and saying to her fellow angels "See! Right there! In the student nurse uniform! That's MY baby!"
Beautiful post. Thank you for sharing and best of luck to you as you continue to make your mother proud.
As a 57 year old mom of four kids , I will tell you your mom was proud of you and would be even more proud to read your tribute to her. I am proud of you.
My condolences in the loss of your mom. She sounds like a wonderful woman and I'd have loved to have met her.
Keep us updated on your year. If you need anyone to talk to, just ask.
Typing through tears is a little difficult, especially when my vision is so blurry even when I'm NOT crying.
Please accept my condolences on the loss of your mother. I can only imagine how proud of you she must be at this very moment. You have someone up there watching out for you every step of the way, just as she did when you were growing up. God bless you. ((((HUGS))))
