Shut Up Mind, Let Me Rest

Woke up in the wee hours of the morning. Mind won’t let me rest. Too many loose ends to tie. Found lovely memory care for both my parents in my neighborhood, so they can stay together and I can visit regularly. Today must get durable power of attorney signed and notarized, so my sister and I can pay the bills. Praying my mom passes her stroke swallow test. She cannot join my father in memory care unless she can swallow liquids. Continued well wishes and prayers welcome. Certainly can’t hurt. Thank you.

Happy Thanksgiving

  

Unraveling

  
After a week of crisis intervention, starting with calling 911 upon realizing my mom had had a stroke last Saturday, I’m coming undone. Time for a break. 

Luckily, my sister and I got reserves (husbands and sons) helping us out with our parents today. I plan to go home and take Sunday as a day of rest. Wish me well. Wish us well. Keep up the prayers. Thank you. 

Acute Stroke Rehab Starts Now

Providence Little Company of MaryToday my mother transferred from the hospital to acute rehab. She will be doing 3-5 hours of occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech therapy each day for the next two weeks.

My sister and I are trying to figure out how to best help my parents once she leaves rehab. Wish us well. Thank you for your love, support and prayers.
