The past few days have been beyond tough for me. I have wanted to share my feelings and thoughts with you. You, my blog family mean the most to me and I mean that just the way I say it. You mean the very most to me!! You all responded to my 60th and were there for me as not a one of my family said a word!
My mom had another very bad day on Sunday. In fact she was 5 minutes away from having her O2 pulled away and a huge shot of morphine administered. The family had once again been called to Mom’s bedside. However my brother told the Dr to wait until my father had returned. Within that 10 minute period my Mom revived and today ( Monday pm ) she is holding her own. She is a fighter. I won’t go into the details but suffice to say that on Sunday we all told her that it was okay to just go and relax. Colin thinks that because we all told her ( I did so via my phone to my brothers’ cell to Moms ear ) that it was alright to go, that she refused and started fighting back. She is very feisty indeed and we all love her. However she is a very sick lady and will never ever revert back to what she was. I had her photo and her obit ready to send to the newspaper in Edmonton. No go! She is on top once again. You rock Mom!!!
I could not travel to Edmonton today, Monday, as I had 2 VERY important medical appointments, one I have been waiting for over 18 months. I have decided to stay here in Kelowna until Mom passes and then go back to Edmonton. I did have my special time with her 2 weeks ago and hugged and kissed her. I think that my dad will need me much more once she has gone.
Life is not easy and all I can say….is….LIVE YOUR LIFE TO THE FULLEST EACH DAY!
Meanwhile, over the weekend, Colin put up our second rain chain.
