Some things are to the bone

Dad and I went up to visit with Mother today. She's completely out of it--where once she was responding to outside voices, at this point, she is no longer aware of them.

Except....

When we first got there, I stood by her bed and said, "Mommy? Mommy? Mommy?"

And she said, "What?"

It was the only really coherent thing she said all day.

Once you are "Mommy", it would appear that you stay Mommy, and you answer your child's voice, no matter what.

Many hugs, tea,and tissues. I remember the last time I saw my mother. "Momma" was all she responded to, except by rote.

All the way to the bone and into the DNA.
It must be heart rending just waiting, for you and your dad.

Oh honey, I can't imagine how you're holding together.
Is there anything I can do to help?

And *hugs* to you, and *comfort*, as much as possible.

Agreed, the one and only time my mum responded when she was in hospital for the last time, was when I said. "Love you mum!"...just for second she was lucid, and smiled.

That instinct overrides everything.
