road trip part 2 (DNR)

I guess what hurt more than seeing her like that was the fact she’d
opened her home to so many of her immediate family members and now that
she’s sick with Parkinsons no one was there but J. Her son lives in
the subdivision across the street yet it’s Easter and he hasn’t even
attempted to call and say “Happy Easter Mom” . But what can you expect
from someone who wanted to cut the life support when his moms condition
worsened. She could hear him saying “do not resuscitate” which
prompted her to let the words “I’m alive” faintly escape her lips.
Sometimes I think about it and the other grimey things folks have done
to her and it incites so much rage. I’m really angry inside because I
cannot fathom how one could wish for your own mom to die.
