Just a quick up date regarding Mom.  The doctors have told us that Mom won't be coming home.  They are trying to get her into a palliative room, and in the meantime they are doing their best to keep her comfortable.
It has been a very difficult week as Mom is, at times, very confused, and sometimes says things that are quite hurtful.  My head knows that it is the drugs they are giving her that is causing this, but my heart hasn't toughened up yet.
I knew Mom was living on borrowed time, but I never imagined her ending her days like this.  I guess I was hoping she would just slip away peacefully in her sleep.

To all of you who messaged me, and send me your well wishes and prayers, I am truly grateful.

Oh Dorothy - holding you both very close in prayer, hon. I can't imagine how it must feel with her saying those things, and I know you know it's not her, it's the meds - but oh how hard it must be. I will continue to hold you both in prayer, dear Dorothy.

That's the way I think we all want to go - peacefully, in our sleep. Take heart, knowing that she is being given the care that she needs right now. You did your best for as long as possible but she needs more now.

So sad to hear this news Dorothy. I will keep you and your mum in my thoughts.
Don't take her words to heart they are not coming from her heart.

My mom is on hospice now too. It is hard to see our loved ones decline in health and say and do things that are so unlike them. I pray you will hold on to the knowledge that it is the disease and not your mom. It can still hurt, but it does help too. I'll be thinking of you during this difficult time that we are both facing with our moms.

Dorothy, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your Mother.

Dorothy I am so sorry for the journey you are on right now. I lost my mom a little over a year I am quite familiar with the emotions, ups and downs, hurts and laughter. Hang in there, spend lots of time with her, work through her resentment and share memories with her. Be strong.
My mom lived to be quite old 98 years...but I still miss her everyday. I long to sit and talk with her.
May the Lord keep you and give you peace.Margi

I'm so sorry, Dorothy. I don't really know what to say except that I'll be praying for you & your mom.

You came to my mind while I was sewing earlier - thought I would drop by to check on you. So sorry to hear about your Mom. You and yours will be in my prayers.
