My Mom

Lucille Carol (Brixius) Childs, born Aug.15,1923, died June 20, 2011 On Saturday afternoon June 18th I got a call from my brother, they had taken my Mom to the hospital for what they thought was a bad case of the flu. It took me most of the evening to find out that it was pancreatic cancer that was spreading rapidly through her body. We left Sunday to take our dogs and our granddaughter to Farmington. then on Monday morning while we were getting ready to leave for Arizona Mom's doctor called and said her lungs were filling with fluid and she would be gone within 24 hours. She died Monday evening about 5pm and we got there at 6pm. I am really having a hard time with it because I did not get there in time to say goodbye. I am very thankful that she did not have to suffer. She looked like she was sleeping. She told them Monday morning that she was not in pain. She went to sleep about 10 am and slept until 5pm when she quietly slipped away. I just never expected it to happen so soon. Everyone was so shocked. She was so active and always looked very healthy. She was my best friend and I miss being able to talk to her, but someday I will be with her again in heaven.
