Believe it or not, there are people who read this blog regularly, and I sometimes get phone calls or emails when I haven’t posted for a while.
If you don’t know, my mom has had a series of serious health setbacks over the past 10 weeks or so. She is a tough woman and has been fighting her way back from each medical event. Until this week. The latest series has been respiratory and heart issues.
Very long story, short: Mom is staying with Jim and me under the hospice program. We are doing our best to keep her comfortable. It’s so nice to have her in a home setting rather than the urgent care / emergency room / intensive care / rehab / hospital rooms that she’s inhabited this past 10 weeks.
Don’t view this as a sad post. Mom’s ready to meet her maker and requested (repeatedly!) that she go to hospice and not be subjected to more testing/treatment/rehab, and Jim and I feel privileged to be caring for Mom during her final days or weeks. So I guess I’m saying that I’ll be busy for a while doing something entirely different, but I’ll be back.
