Good Monday Morning everyone.... I am still here in Regina and Mom is still holding her own. My plan is to head home tomorrow for about 10 days to get some stuff accomplished in my life and then I'll head back for another week or so to keep Heather company and to visit with Mom. The hospice is a very good place for Mom to be... she is comfortable, for the most part her pain is gone, the staff is good....
The worst part right now is not knowing if we have days, weeks or months left of watching Mom suffer.... she's not suffering pain wise most of the time, but you can see just how tired she is... it's hard.
Her speech is slow, she is sometimes confused, she gets irritated easily, she seems about a page behind in every conversation, she is weak, she is not able to get out of bed without help, she can not do more than a few (aided) steps.
It's hard to watch a once vibrant 71 year old be so weak....
I created this card a few weeks ago to send to my Mom when she was moved to hospice. I wanted to tell her how much she means to me.... and how much I love her. The card is up on her bulletin board at the hospice. I hope it makes her happy....
