My mothers euphoria lasted about 36 hours. We are losing her quickly as her vital signs go downhill. I am due to leave to go back to LA today and was terrified of going in the room to say what I think will be my last good-bye to her. I was afraid that she wouldn't recognize me. Thankfully, she was very aware of who I was. We had some small talk, with her mostly listening, I told her I loved her and thanked her for the gift of life. It was the hardest thing I have ever had to do. I hardly remember the flight back to LA.
