I know it has been awhile since I have written. Sometimes other things have to come first. I know most of you know that my Mom has not been well!
I have been at her home with my sister all last week and part of the week before. We were there to take Mom to Doctor appointments she had. She has lost almost all use of her legs and will never get better. She is gettting weaker everyday. We thought physical therapy would work but two doctors said no. They advised her to go into a facility where she can have 24 hr care. We knew that eventually this would come, but it is like death, almost. None of her six children wanted this. But we feel at this time it is best for her.
Tomorrow she will be going and I know this is not easy on her. Just think of probably looking at your home and all your possessions for the last time! It is so emotional for all of us. If I would let myself go I could break down every time I think of it. But I know that our God knows what is best for her. I also know He will see us through this if we just trust Him.
The adult class at church is already making plans to send her cards and going with me to see her. They may have seen her a couple times. (My husband told me this on the way home from church today.) It touched my heart to know they care enough to want to do this. It will help not only Mom but me, as well.
If you think of us during this coming week~please pray for us. It is hard on those that live close by and probably harder on her children that live a long distance. They want to be here but can't.
Hopefully I can get back to posting soon.
