My daughter-in-law has maintained a blog about her family for several years. I’ve appreciated it so much, but it never occurred to me to create one so you all could keep up with my mother. Duh!
So here we go. What I hope to do is both give you updates about how she is doing, and back stories–until June 2005 when she moved in with me.
She was discharged from Hospice after 22 months on Feb. 13, 2010. I knew she could do fine without Hospice, but I couldn’t! The five days per calendar month respite was crucial to my well being. The rest of it, that is, being a full time care giver, is only understandable by those of you who have done it.
She has been living at Whispering Pines since Jan. 3, 2011. There are three buildings in a U-shape. Each one at the sides has 15 residents, and the one in the middle is offices and a large community room.
