I'm here but much has happened! My dear sweet mom had a stroke two weeks ago today. I flew down immediately and stayed with her in the hospital. Her stroke left her paralyzed on her right side and she is right handed. Her dementia actually, in some ways, initially helped her to forget the impact of this, but of course as time went by it really did not help. My brother and I thankfully had this nursing home picked out awhile ago, so we did not have to search to find a rehab facility. Four days in the hospital and then to the home. We got her situated and I visited her everyday and for most of the day. She was adjusting and smiling and eating, but then I had to go. Now the reality is setting in and we are all sad with the events and the extent of the stroke. At 86 years of age, so weak and fragile, I think we need a miracle. I will be going down after the 4th of July and sooner if need be. I miss her and think of her nonstop. My wish to have her close by is not looking good. I have to do what's best and right now she needs to be where she is.
I think that's all for now. Not feeling very much like blogging but I'll be back. Thanks for listening and visiting. Sometimes you just have to deal with what's in front of you with all good thoughts, intentions and love and let God see to rest. I think that's where I am.
