    Yeah. I read that story. I have to wonder if this isn't a cover story. I get that it's a freakish occurrence, but I'm skeptical.

    so mom is rapidly approaching the end
    i know its selfish to expect anything to last but she's my go to Dodger partner
    especially to you TB
    i feel its so unfair your mom was taken from you so young
    maybe that's just how it is that some of us take the pain full on and others linger
    i'm doing my best to enjoy ever moment and while i'm happy i fucking can't stop crying
    she's almost 99 wtf do i expect?
    she wasn't the best person i ever knew but she's my mom
    my ex is flying back to Sri lanka to take care of her father as he passes
    and all of us knew how the end always is
    much love to my brothers here

    You probably not the best son either.
    But you stuck around.
    Even when you left.
    Always came back.
    Lots of mammas boys in the world.
    Unfortunately most don't have what it takes to be a mammas boy till the end.
    And mamma dies surrounded and alone.
    But not your mamma.
    She's not alone.
    She's got a real son.
    And she's gonna go up the mountain holding hands with the son of god.

    I'm sorry, man.
    You have lived so much more life than me that I can't begin to offer any meaningful wisdom that you haven't already heard.

    Yes, while it hurts that a brain aneurism robbed me of 40-50 more years with my mom, it happened the only way I could have handled it...quickly and without warning. I wasn't there when 'it' happened.
    For that I am grateful.
    My heart goes out to you, as you must wait, and watch.
    That said, I know you are uniquely equipped to handle this.
    You're the son who stepped up to the plate.
    Perhaps being there in her final hour is a gift for your selflessness and servitude...
    ...even if it doesn't feel that way now...maybe, in time, this painful season will be thought of much differently.
    Not saying this to add fluff, but God put your mom in your hands for a reason. I believe it.
    You two are so blessed to have each other.
    Sending all the love and prayers I can!

    so sorry bro
    we know the inevitable is coming but there's not a thing we can do to stop it or even slow it down
    but what we can do is what you’re doing — enjoy every moment and making sure she knows how appreciated she is and how much you love her
    and don't think for a moment she doesn't know it
    i did that as best i could for both my mom and dad
    i miss them dearly but i’m also relieved knowing they’re whole again and no longer in pain
    mom passed 10 years ago the same day as duke snider
    dad made it five years longer

    you know, i understand death is a part of life... but that doesn’t mean i have to like it
    and i don't like it
    i just do the best i can
    love you man

    Such is the circle of life. Parents care for us, then we care for them (or at least we should).

    Because someone like your mother has lived a full life doesn't make it any easier, but hopefully you can take some comfort in that.

    Keeping you in my prayers.

    Don't have much to say other than this hurts my soul to read. It doesn't matter how old she is or how much life she has lived, she is your momma and it is a tragedy. I am sorry brother.

    In protest against the horseshit that I see everyday in professional sports, and especially in baseball, I watched The Sandlot today with my kids.

    Great flick. Good times. Much better than anything that'll happen in Denver this week.

    If you haven't seen it recently, the Bad News Bears is fun AF.
    And no way it could have been made in this day an age.

    Diablo's old stomping grounds, if I remember correctly.

    Love that movie.

    The remake is so shitty.

    Watched it today...with two kids, aged 10 & 6. They asked me a question or two, and spent the rest of the day on their fucking IPads, barely looking up from the monitors.
    I'm glad my kid grew up when he did, before all this electronic shit took hold as it has for these kids now.
    Chokehold.

    was filmed directly across the street in Mason park
    first time i ever saw anything like Tatum lol
    so mom rallied from sheer decline to casual what's up
    she had gone from everyday routine to leaning to her left and gasping even w oxygen
    i think her current caregiver also was panicking and i felt so alone for a couple of days because no one in the family probably gives af besides a couple of brothers
    and they weren't in town so it was going to be my call since she has a dnr
    life then washed in to remind me there was no time to mourn because these things never end
    suddenly solo on my farm, condo renovation, state renewed their bloodsucking ways, social service bitches at the school, idk i always rode the waves but i was just suddenly underwater
    just all at once
    good news is she's stable and i've donned my armor
    and ty for all the kind words

    Your mother's generation and their toughness cannot be dismissed...I saw it in my own mother.
    Good news...good for you.

    So she made us put our manly hearts out there and then is back to kickin' ass?
    Legend.
    I hope she remains stable and comfortable. And for you to defeat the bloodsuckers.

    i think i shared 6 months ago or so how she went in to emergency w water on the lungs
    Dr. said it was covid and we should start making plans
    my brother from Ventura had come down that night and it was a tearful eulogy behind a bottle of cazadores reposado
    5 days later she's back like nothing happened w drained lungs
    shit when i moved to the property she lives on 15 years ago my brothers said it would be for a few years
    a stroke, multiple emergencies and everything that goes w getting old and here we are
    tonight she finally gave it up that Muncy is a pretty amazing player
    she was born in 1920
    sometimes we laugh to tears about the most ridiculous stuff
    its like a continuing Tuesdays with Morrie and its getting more and more absurd lol

    She was supposed to go.
    But somebody loved her enough for her to stick around and live through all that.
    People get extra time when people love them.
