Comfort & Joy

Ommie is dying. This is so hard. We are going to have hospice come in to help us keep her more comfortable. She seems to be slipping a little more each day...a little more confused, a little more uncomfortable.

Saturday, December 29th is our annual family party. She is so looking forward to this...our one-time a year when all aunts, uncles, cousins, siblings are together celebrating. Her doctor is recommending she not attend. Her family is rebelling.

She is dying. This is her wish.

Hey, just wanted you to know you're still in my thoughts and prayers

I am glad that you are rebelling against the doc's. Too bad for what they want, this is YOUR family and you all know what is best for your Ommie. You will all (including her) be happier knowing she is there to celebrate with you on this Christmas. I am keeping all of you in my thoughts today and the rest of the season :)

Thanks for checking in has been a whirlwind weekend that I'm finishing up a blog about now, to post a little later this morning :)

As hard as this is to say, maybe once she gets to see everyone, one last time, she'll be ready to go. I'm so sorry hun, that this is all happening during the holidays. Many hugs and much love to you and yours.
Blessings too.
