Colton Haynes Just Posted a Heartbreaking Tribute to His Mother: ‘I Felt So Paralyzed’

Colton Haynes just posted a heartbreaking tribute to his mother Dana, who passed away in March after struggling with health issues. The Teen Wolf star admitted to falling asleep on the bathroom floor of a Motel 6, holding his mother’s ashes for three hours.

Along with a picture of a rabbit, Haynes wrote, “Today I picked up my mom’s ashes from the crematory. I sat in the parking lot & cried for 3 hours. I felt so paralyzed that I checked into a Motel 6 down the street & fell asleep holding her box on the bathroom floor.”

But the post doesn’t end on a sad note, but instead with a message of hope. Haynes continues, “When I woke up I went outside to get some fresh air before I drove home & this little baby rabbit walked 2 feet in front of me & we didn’t break eye contact for 20 mins.”

“I sat on that bench with my mom’s ashes & cried so hard I threw up. I truly feel like this rabbit was my incredible mom consoling me & telling me that it’s all gonna be ok.”

“Im sharing this with y’all because it was the most surreal/incredible thing that’s ever happened to me. Sending love to all of you. [sic]”

In February, Colton Haynes revealed that his mother had been diagnosed with advanced cirrhosis of the liver and was in kidney failure after being “in and out of hospital” since January.

Haynes began his Instagram post, “My mom, Dana, always loves to laugh. Even when her liver & kidney doctors gave us the worst news you could get, my mom looked at us and said, ‘The best thing to do in these situations is to laugh.’ She then chuckled so loud you could hear it to the other end of the hospital. That’s my mom. She’s funny, bull headed & strong.”
