As you may have noticed, I have not participated in any memes this week, except one, memes that I have so much fun doing, and one of the reasons, I went public with my blog. But I have been been at the Nursing Home from morning until late in the night, sitting by my Mom's bedside holding her hand, trying to squeeze in every moment that I have left with her. Sitting there, reflecting, recalling memories and sharing them with Mom, hoping that she hears me. I only leave to come home, get a couple of hours of sleep and then publish posts that I had drafted in advance for commitments I had made. She is comfortable, another reason I don't want to leave, because if I do see any discomfort on her face, I know which medication she is in need of and report it to the nurse. The staff has been phenomenal both to her and me. There are good people in this world. One aide, who my mother used to call "her angel" was on vacation this week, but one would never know. She has been in every night doing my Mom's care. Another aide, came in on her day off just for my Mom. That's caring and compassion. They have brought a recliner in the room for me to make me comfortable due to my back as I was sitting in a metal folding chair from 10am to 11pm. This week, my blog will also be on hiatus, posting only those that I have previously agreed to. I know my blog will be here when I return, right now, my Mom and our time together is my priority.
