Let it Snow!
Now onto the low down about my life. I have done alot of praying and visiting my doctor and I've done tons of research, talked with my brother and decided its time I put Mom in a Assisted Living Center. She really needs someone to be with her 24/7 to assist her with dressing, hair washing, bathing because she doesn't even know what your talking about when you ask her if she wants her hair washed. She doesn't have a clue what food she is eating and she just doesn't communicate well. I have HBP and plenty of problems with my back and hips so if I had to pick her up or move her I just couldn't do it. We had an agreement that when it got to much she would go to a nursing home but she just doesn't comprehend my health and half the time she calls me 'the girl or hey girl'. It breaks my heart but she will only be about 15 minutes away and I'll visit her at least 2-3 times a week. I can pick her up anytime and take her to dinner or to my daughters so I think I can do it. I just can't go to sleep tonight and my mind is going a mile a minute so I decided to post and get it off my chest. I would appreciate prayers for Mom that she will like the place and that she will do well. I'll be back in a couple of days I plan on taking a break and just relaxing for the next day or two alone.
