Thank you everyone for dropping by. I just thought I'd give you a quick "mom update" since so many of you have been keeping her in your prayers. After our Mother's Day outing she took a turn for the worse. She is at home with 24/7 care and will remain there until the end. She has been under hospice care since January so there are no more hospital or doctor visits, only comfort measures. She had not eaten in days and was only taking minimal liquids, but yesterday she wanted ice cream and today a little bit of coffee cake. Oh, she loves her sweets!
I spent most of the weekend with her and chose to forgo the hook-in because I did not want to be an hour and a half away. There will always be another hook-in but never another mom.
My older son Bill quickly flew in from Las Vegas. She has always had such a great bond with her grandchildren. When Bill was about 3 and 4 years old, mom was a school bus driver and she would pick him up on a regular basis and let him ride the bus with her.
This is such a sad time. Your continued prayers for a peaceful passing are much appreciated.
Here's a couple pictures of Mom when she was 19 and 20 years old. She was beautiful then and is still that way today.
