Do you ever stop being a Mother?

I’m writing this newsletter while sitting at the end of my son’s hospital bed waiting for his wife to come in and take over. As I look at my grown son in the hospital bed, he is still that teenage boy I sat with in the hospital so many years ago. I try not to take over like when he was a teenager but sometimes I can’t help myself, asking nurses; when is the doctor coming, do you have the test results, he needs his IV bag changed, he needs more meds. From my experiences over the years with hospitals, the rule is “never leave your loved one alone”. So as a family we all take turns staying with him.

So no, you never stop being a Mother no matter how old your children get but you have to be respectful  not to over step your place. PS – he is out of hospital and doing fine.
