My Mom passed away 3 days ago. It's been the longest 3 days that I can remember. The pain and loss feel overwhelming. But beyond the grief is the constant clawing worry and anxiety about how to do this. How to lay her to rest. It's a terrible thing when you find yourself bursting into tears on the phone with the mortician not from the grief, but from the cost and the deadlines. So many calls, Lord above.

And to see it affecting not only you, but the pets as well. My Mom's puppy is starting to figure out that something is wrong. Madison was the love of my Mom's life - and was one of the last few words I could say that she would understand. She would repeat his name and say Beautiful. And he is... Today he's being so so quiet, which isn't like him.



Sharing a photo I took for Mom when she went into the hospital, prior to her stroke. (She'd been in hospital for another condition for over a week when the stroke happened.)

But now it seems to be Izzy, our orange tabby, who is the most confused. He keeps circling her chair and then going to the window as if she'll be coming home. He does it over and over. When he's not trying to cuddle and be held like a child. The most independent one of them all...now to this.



Please continue to share the link below on Facebook, Twitter, etc.

And if you can, please consider donating. I need your help. The support is heartening in such a dark time. And it is needed, so very much. Thank you. And know that it means the world.

RIP Mom...

My mother passed away this afternoon.  I was with her.  Her end was not easy.

I am devastated to have lost her; and in this way.

Please, please - if you can - please help me lay her to rest.  She did not have a will; and no resource set aside to cover her funeral expenses.  I'm left not knowing what to do, so I must ask for help.

Donate, if you can.  Share the link so others may see.

Thank you.

Help Needed: I Dream Of Jeanie

You may remember me a little.  It's been awhile since I've posted on lj.  Been sticking mostly to twitter as of late.  But now is a time to try all avenues of help.  If ever you enjoyed one of my stories, or the conversations we had back in the day.  Please read and share if you can.

https://www.gofundme.com/25q6ktvw

My mother is entering Hospice for the last few days of her life. Per her doctor, she will not last the week and may pass at any time. She had a massive stroke six days ago which was completely debilitating. The stroke happened right in front of my eyes. I watched my beloved mother fall into this version of hell, locked in the cage of her own body. I have been in a nightmare ever since....sitting at her side as her condition worsens hourly.

My mother and I have no family. It was just me and her against the world. She raised me on her own. She has been disabled for over 15 years and has no savings to help provide for her final rest.

I feel like my world is crushed. She was my mother, my friend, my roommate, my all. And I cannot believe such a beautiful, creative and strong willed woman has been brought down so suddenly. So harshly.

I am asking for help to cover her cremation and medical costs. It grieves me to ask. But I am very much alone in this now and I need the help.

Please give if you can and share if you will. May her passing bring her to the peace she needs and deserves.

Thank you for what kindness you can share.

Izzie the orange tabby and Duchess the black & white domestic short hair. Izzie is finally old enough to get neutered but his human needs help to afford the low cost clinic next month. If you’d like to donate to help Izzie and/or Duchess get neutered and vaccinated you can do so via paypal. ( via xof1013@gmail.com )

I would add:


Not being able to provide for their care is heart wrenching. I want to do the best I can for them, but given the length of my unemployment and the devastating effects it’s had on our household … we need the kindness of pet lovers like you to provide for them, if possible.

Anything you can give to help provide for their spayed/neutered costs, shots and/or food would be much appreciated. Thank you.



PLEASE - if you could also REBLOG this tumblr entry for us, it would help our chances greatly.

Kitten-givings Day

Looking towards the good - because it's rather necessary right now - Happy Thanksgiving to you all. I decided to share photos of the two new additions to the family - Izzie and Duchess.

Photobucket

They both came into our lives very surprisingly - Izzie literally walked right up to our home and into our hearts as a baby. Duchess was a stray rescue that arrived a little more than a month after Izzie. They adore each other, which I'm thankful for...

There are times I feel guilty because I'm so worried about being able to continue to provide for them and for us, but I have to hold out hope that they were brought into our lives for a good reason. And that things will work out for the better.

Below the cut - some of THE cutest kitten photos you've ever seen. Hugs x

Adam Lambert w/Queen and Elton John in Concert - WHOA...

So in 2008, Queen performed a free concert in Kiev, Ukraine - to which 350,000+ people showed up... WOW.

Don't believe the number? Take a quick look here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TQ437PAwgUo



What's the point? Well, we knew Adam Lambert was going to perform with Queen in London for 3 nights in July, with 3 other European dates in other countries.

THE concert of them all (which is also the first of the six dates) was just announced today:

http://brianmay.com/queen/queennews/queennewsjun12a.html#17

Queen is doing a joint concert with Elton John - in the same place they performed in 2008 - and it's free for the public to attend.

It's also the night before the Euro 2012 Football Championship (soccer) - hence why sooooo many people will be there AGAIN.

It's happening June 30th - and will be broadcast to millions on TV in the Ukraine and Poland.

To say it'll be one HECK of an event is putting it mildly.

Hugs
