Thank you for your kind words. Starting to get bad now. Mom in pain. And because she is old school....she is refusing the pain meds. Hard nosed. Monday is her 89th birthday. God this is so horrible to watch. I understand that death is a part of life....but, why does it have to be so heartbreaking.

Mom has agreed to go to a facility. Just too much on us kids. We are running ourselves into the ground and starting to have physical problems. Just too much. Need round the clock care. Skilled care. We want Mom to be safe. Her mind is 100% intact. And she is very stubborn. This will be a huge relief for us. Struggling to keep up having Mom at home. Hospice can't be there 24/7. And to hire a nurse or an aid.....would be extremely expensive.

We moved Mom to the facility on Monday. But, she was always in charge. She passed away 16 hours later. She said..."I want to go now" And she did. Funeral is today. Rest in Peace Mom. God bless.
