Not Good

I am not sure how much longer Mom is going to be alive.

I saw her last night and while she wasn't really conscious but she grasped my hand and refused to let go. It's hard seeing her with all those tubes in her nose, mouth and throat; she hardly even looks like herself.

Yesterday was my Dad's birthday and this was not the best birthday present he could get. My brother has moved Dad into his house which is good. Mom has been borderline competent at best for some time.

She refused to let your hand go....reminded me of what you said about regrets in your post below this which I just read; sounds like SHE doesn't have regrets, she just plain LOVES YOU.

I'll be praying for you and your family, friend. xxx
