Mother’s Last Birthday

My mother’s last birthday is coming up on September 13th. She’ll be 75 and she’s dying. She’s in hospice now, has been for two weeks and 4 days now. She had a stroke on Wednesday, August 24th.

This is the first time I’m faced with an odd situation such as this –

Mom’s dying and she’s still alive to see her 75th birthday.

What in the world do I do?

What do I say?

I will be calling her, or at least Dad, which we are not on good terms cause, well, I won’t get into it here. Do I say to her – You’ve made it to 75.

I really can’t seem to find anything on this matter at hand. I’m completely lost in what to do and how to say it. On top of that, I’m 2,000 miles away, she being in Tennessee and I’m in Washington state. I’m trying to gather funds to see her late next month if not sooner.

Time is ticking and I need advice quick.
