*Friday Fast One*

Hi Everyone... and Happy Friday!

I am still in Regina, still spending the days at the hospice with my Mom.  She has had very few wakeful moments since I got here earlier in the week.  Yesterday she had a good one while the Dr was visiting and she has decided to stop her feeds....  she admitted to Heather and I that she is tired of fighting and is ready to die.  We will miss her terribly, but we totally understand.

Of course, there is no way of knowing when anything will happen.... Heather has taken to sleeping at the Hospice with Mom as Mom has been scared of being alone.  I feel bad for Heather....  this is all taking such a toll on her.  But I know she is doing what she feels she needs to do.

I need to get a move on and dry my hair so I can get to the hospice.....  so here's the card for you.... it's FTL99, the patterned paper is old Imaginisce, and I used a Spellbinders die for the tag....

You are in the hearts and minds and prayers of many people.
I know what you are going through as I went through it with my mom. You are fortunate to have the support of your sister and family.
Your simple card is really elegant.

Hi Nancy. I just want to say that I think of you & your family every single day & say a prayer for you all. I can't even imagine what you are going thru...& I'm not quite sure what to say except big hugs to you all & that I will continue to pray for peace for you all & that you just "enjoy" the final moments with your Mom & soon there will be no suffering.
