Taking a break

Please note that I won't be posting for a while. We are staying at the care facility where my mom-in-law is, spending what we expect will be her last days with her. My husband in sleeping in our motorhome which we've parked in the parking lot and I spend my nights on a cot next to Mom in her room.

Please pray that she will go peacefully. I'm pretty sure she will. She has a big faith and is not in pain - just weak. She's having lots of company, people telling her they love her. Things are good.

Will catch up when I'm back home.

I am so glad you opted to not allow a colonoscopy on her. And I hope she passes on in peace.

I'm glad you have this time with her. Take care,

Dear Marja,
Spending your mother-in-law's last days her is truly a gift that you are giving to her. I hope it's not too painful for her or for you and Wes. But even if all you can do is touch her, swab her lips, pray for her, and talk to her (even if it seems she can't hear you) is truly a blessing. My thoughts and prayers are with the three of you!
