You have no idea how much I want to write something peppy, or funny, or uplifting today! My eyes are swollen, my back aches, and I feel miserable.
Mom is sleeping a lot. Yesterday she was able to take a bubble bath, but was in too much pain to enjoy it. They will try again today, and give her pain meds right before they wheel her to the bath room. The special bath wheelchair that they lower into the bath is very cool!
Last night all four of us kids and my dad just hung out with Mom, along with my sister’s husband. (Ed was at my parents’ house with our sleeping girls.) The nurse came in and took a picture of us all. Hospice is so wonderful. But we really wish we didn’t need it right now.
It’s going to be a long time before life gets back to normal.
