Mom is home resting comfortably surrounded by her family. Liese (my sister-in-law) and Bethany (my neice) arrived Thursday. Uncle Tom & Aunt Jan (Mom’s brother and sister-in-law) arrived last night. Wayne (BIL) comes Sunday morning and Aunt Diana (mom’s sister) arrives Monday. We are hoping that she will survive until everyone is able to come.
She is in the final stages of life and while it is difficult to think about we are at peace. We are doing what Mom would want. Remembering, preparing and laughing. Last night the children played and the adults took time to discuss final preparations, all the while mom snored loudly from her bed.
The hospice care providers have been fantastic and very comforting to everyone at the house. I’ve spent most of my time this week with the distraction of work, but the boys allowed me to leave a little early last night to go be with my family. I am so thankful they did that.
I appreciate the words of support. Thank you to those who have stopped by the store to give a hug or called to check in. We feel so blessed to have such a large network of friends. Mom would like that too.
