and so it goes...





We have been camped out at mom's house for 2 months. You can see the current puzzle on the table. My clever wife bought a bunch of puzzles and invited everyone to participate including the nurses and aides and anyone else who stopped by.
Also you can catch a glimpse of her mattress there propped against the wall. The first time we tried the hospital bed with her was ...well lets just say a fiasco... that time we had the mattress stored away neatly in the basement.
The second time was in haste, and so the mattress sits.
Mom said just two days ago in her haze... I want my dining room back.

sorry for the fuzzy photos. but i am blogging from the computer seen in the pic above on mom's dining room table, and using my cell phone to snap photos.

I am so sorry for your loss, Weese. you both have been awesome daughters to your mom. May she now rest in peace. my deepest heart felt sympathies for you all now.

dykewife said...

many empathies and sympathies to you and yours. i lost my father this summer after he had a stroke and went senile. we were not able to care for him at home because of the nature of his dementia. i was grieved to see the loss of my dad weeks before he actually died. i miss him.

Wherever she went it has got to be better than where she was.

zahava said...

So very sorry for your loss.

Hope that you take comfort in knowing that the home hospice care you provided your Mom was loving-kindness at its purest. May that love carry you gently through this new phase of adjusting to life without her....

Wish we could pay a condolence call in person.... Sending you lots of love from overseas.....
