From Paraná, Entre Ríos, where he grew up and his family still lives, Maju Lozano shared on his social networks a touching letter dedicated to his mother, Ana María Lahitte, 82, who is in very delicate health and is fighting for her life.
In detail, the renowned host posted a touching writing on her Instagram account, where she is followed by 812 thousand users, which she titled: "Thought with my beloved mother!"
"Life is a big waiting room. We live waiting for our turn... the turn of love, heartbreak, work, rest, weekend, holiday, lunch, friends, enemies ...", began expressing the presenter of All afternoons (El Nueve, at 14).
Maju Lozano wrote a letter about the last days of his mother's life.
"We wait and despair and wait without expecting anything. And so life and so death. Right now I'm in the toughest waiting room I've ever had to wait. I am here with my mother by my side waiting for death, her death which is also, a little bit mine," he continued.
"It's not a wait like I expected, it's not as raw as I thought it... At times it is unbearable and maddening and at times it smells of peace and tenderness. I am alone lying next to her, I waited a long time for this moment, I was overwhelmed with so many people watching over her in life!!", said Maju, visibly moved.
A part of Maju Lozano's post dedicated to the death of his mother.
He described: "I longed to be alone with her. I hear his breathing that at times stops and there are seconds of immense uncertainty and a little bit also my breathing stops and it is an eternal pause and we start again. "
Then, the host told the scene in front of her eyes: "The drip of morphine falls slowly and the monitoring makes a play of lights that I think I love, there is something about the rhythm of that drip, the lights and my mother's breathing that I find fascinating. They go at a pace and I like that, I like what happens in the silence of this wait."
And he wondered: "I don't know what's stopping her, I've asked her countless times but I don't know if she knows either, maybe once again she's hiding a secret."
Maju also explained that he put in Ana's hands "a rosary with the smell of roses." "I don't like that smell, I don't know if she likes it either, but it's in her hands. I look at her and I know she's not her anymore, she's so flirtatious that I'm sure she wouldn't like to look like that. If I could I would blush on her cheeks, she doesn't like to look pale, I didn't blush me, I didn't think she would need it," the driver acknowledged.
He added: "Breathe, stop and breathe. At times I want her to stop but when she stops I look at her and say 'mommy, don't be a wagon'. What's stopping her? I already told him to leave, I already did everything that doctors and psychologists recommend. The priests and nurses," he acknowledged.
The driver described her mother's departure.
"But death is that strange thing with times of its own. The unmanageable death. I wonder what I prefer, I wonder if I want me to come now that we are both alone or when my sister comes and we are the three as we always have been. I wonder if I'll notice, if the room will get cold and dark or warm and bright," he continued.
At that moment of the letter, Maju said that life "is strange" but when death is around "everything stops a little". And he assured that he has "no reproaches" for his mother, "nor almost anything to say to her."
Maju poured his feelings on his social networks.
And after saying that he thought it would be "like in the movies", "that I would talk to him a lot, that he would caress his hands and kiss his forehead", he revealed: "Death is not so romantic ... Death is death and you live it as you can..."
"I like to know that she knows that I love her, this silent bridge that has been created between the two, the music of her slow breathing and that faint sound of the device that assists her," he said at the end of the letter.
And he closed: "I like the peace that is in the room, to take care of her in solitude, united in the expectation of her death and it does not hurt so much for now ... I'm prepared to wait for when she is. Don't worry, mommy, we're here for when you decide. Come when she calls you death, you already know the way."

Maju Lozano's post on Instagram talking about his mother's health was commented by many figures in the media, such as Valeria Mazza, a close friend of the driver since childhood, or Tatiana Shapiro, his partner in Todos las tardes.

And she closed, excited: "I am sure that she leaves calm and happy to live so loved and pampered by you, her daughters, by her grandchildren and all of us who had the privilege of knowing her."

The operation on Maju's mother and her post in the middle of the pandemic
In June of last year, Maju Lozano traveled urgently to Paraná, Entre Ríos, to accompany his mother in an operation that had to be performed.
According to journalist Laura Ubfal, the driver left all her responsibilities in Buenos Aires and took a plane to accompany Ana in surgery and be there for everything she needed.
Two years earlier, during the coronavirus pandemic, Maju had shared a heartbreaking post dedicated to her mom. "It's unbearable what I miss you, mommy," were the words chosen by the driver to accompany a beautiful postcard from her mother, who was always dedicated to dance and her family.
