A new day

Mom spends most of her evenings talking to my Father ( who passed 4 yrs. ago). With each conversation she is asking "please help me". I don't know how to take this. It seems to bring her comfort at times. At times she seems frustrated. During the day's she remains alert when spoken to. She is still only eating bites at a time. Maybe by the end of  the day she will have eaten 1/2 a meal. I have found that ice cream or baby food has become her favorites.She is drinking 8 ounces or more daily. With all this, she remains in the happy place. I pray she remains in it.

A new mom

This is a hard blog. My mother is basically coherent. We have small conversations. She tells me if she likes what I am feeding her. She tells me what sounds good to eat. She says thank you. Responds when then breeze falls on her with," that is so nice".  tells me Good night honey.  Things I have not heard in 8 months. She chuckles, smiles appropriately. I am elated but wary at the same time. Her voice is weak ( small).  I will try and not question all this. My mom is in a happy place. She appears calm and content.  What more can I ask when dealing with such an ugly disease.  Prayers to all.
