The bed has been ordered. Medical supplies in route. Mom will be coming home Friday. I visited her today. She seems so far away (withdrawn). Non verbal, wont smile. Wont eat or drink much of anything.I hope when she gets home we will be able to bring her around. Praying to get her on her feet again. Begin to feed herself again. Smile at us again. With all these thought's and concern's. I CANT WAIT for her to come home. It is time to start a new round of creative thinking. My mom is a stubborn woman. But, she has met her match in me. God willing I will win. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

A new day comes with new challenges. Mom is comfortable but,unaware. Hospice has stopped the opiates. Which I believe will allow her to be more aware, once they are out of her system. She will be coming home, I am told but, the house must be made ready for her return. Out with the old bed in with a hospital bed. Equipment for comfort and a new medication regime. How long she will be with me when she returns home only the good Lord knows.

Well I believe my mothers journey with Alzheimer's is about over. I pray she finds peace . She will no longer eat or drink. She wants no one to touch her. I have given up my selfish need to keep her with me. I had her placed in Hospice House for pain control. Will know the doctors opinion tomorrow. I continue to pray for all caregivers of loved ones.
