My Mom is sick. I live in another State. Have no time off at a job I recently started. She knows and understand this in her head if not her heart. I wish my situation was such that i could go visit. thankfully she has my 4 brothers close. My Aunt her sister tried to take me to task... I thank God I have the Mom I have. one that has a deeper Understanding then her Sister. I know should try to make it home to see her but truly. I am trying to keep things together here. So all i can do is Pray for her and hope that I can get the prayers of others for her also...

I'm sorry to hear about your mother, I know you worries about her a lot, but Thank God and your brothers and aunt because they are there to make sure that your mom is alright, but if you can have a day off it's also better if you visit her even for one day if it's not that far. I hope your mom will be better soon.

It must have been hard for you since you are not able to visit your mom. But why not try to ask your company if you could get some time off?It might be just for a day or so. You know what, time is of the essence especially when times like this comes up in our lives. I wish your mom well but we must also take into consideration spending time with them helps a lot in their recovery. I know we should be thinking about being practical here but moments passed will never come back. Money is important which is coming from your work but your mom needs you too. I just hope your company will be a little bit more considerate since family is one of our top priorities in our lives.

Prayer is good. But you can always communicate with your mom through online, there's already this so called video chat where in you are able to see each other. Based on a personal experience it is really different if you're at your mom side in this time. But just like you I can't go home because of work but I still make time to make a video call to her.

I am very sorry to hear that your mother is ill. I hope it is nothing really terribly serious. If it is then you should go and see her, your work should understand. If there is a possibility she may not get better then you will never forgive yourself if you don't go and see her. If it is not serious then as you said your brothers are there for her, but if it is serious then I urge you to go and see her, just in case the worst happens.

Does she live very far? Do you not get any days off? Yes I think it's important to take time to see your Mom if she's sick because life is very short. You do not want to be like me, a person that lives only with regrets every day. Even before my Mom got sick I didn't visit her or call her nearly as much as I should have. Then when she got sick I didn't want to face the fact that she might die. Although I spent a whole week at my sister's house so I could visit my Mom in the hospital I couldn't stay any longer & went back home. The following week my Mom passed away. My sisters & brother were with her, but me, her oldest child was not. This is a regret that I live with every day, not to mention the unbearable guilt that I can never get rid of. So if there is any way at all that you can visit your Mom then I suggest you do it & not because your family is trying to make you feel guilty. Do it for your Mom but most of all for yourself. You have no idea the pain that I feel every day, the unbearable grief & most of all the guilt I still feel almost two years later. It eases up on some days, but it never, ever goes away.
