On December 8, 2020 my mama wasn’t feeling well and was rushed to the hospital. When the doctors told me she had Covid and Pneumonia, my heart dropped. My mama was already fighting; stage 4; Breast Cancer for the second time. I talked to my mama the next day and she sounded fine and was in good spirits so that made me feel better.
December 10, 2020 my mama was not answering the phone so I just figured she was sleeping. On December 11, 2020 I told the hospital I wanted to hear my mama voice so they let me video chat her. My mama was so disoriented and I thought it was the medicine. I talk to my mama for about 15 mins we told each other we loved each other and I let her go. Later on that night /morning my mom threw up and it start being hard for her to breath so they had to put her on the ventilator. The doctors automatically start telling me my mom was dying and I needed to call hospice in. I told them to do everything they can for her and that I couldn’t just give up on my mom that easy.
Every day or every other day they would call me and give me an update. Every time I seen the number calling my heart would just drop cause I just never knew what they was going to tell me. The weekend of January 10, 2021 the nurses and doctors called me and told me that my mama's blood pressure was severely dropping and that at that point they felt like they were torturing her. I knew then I was going to need to make a decision. So later on that night I started looking up different prayers basically saying I had to let her go . I found one that said mama. I said that prayer around 11 p.m. January 10 and 2:05 a.m. Monday January 11, 2021 they called me and told me my mama had passed away.
I felt like God and my mama were just waiting on me to accept that she was not going to get better. God knew it was going to be hard for me to tell the doctors to take her off the ventilator and call hospice in so he went ahead and called her home. I miss my mama so so much but I know she is not hurting anymore. I’m going to continue to make my mama proud and raise my 2 beautiful children . Long Live My Mama Sonya
