Updates On Mom and Me :)

Hi all,

Wow! I can't believe that it is almost October. I love the fall colors, the pumpkins, and fun activities of this season. I love this time of year when the holidays are on their way. :)

Well now on a more serious note... my sister and I were with mom in the ER for 12 hours or so a week ago Saturday. Her knee locked up and she couldn't walk. Also it was very swollen and they had to drain it.

She is in a nursing home now.  She saying that she thinks it is time for her to stay there.  She was going to do that a few years ago and changed her mind.  I think she is sure this time. We have to figure out the financial stuff now.

My sister is getting a bit of a break here. She has had to try to take care of mom for a few years as well as care for herself with all her medical, mental and emotional problems.

Trying to get everyone and everything squared away is very challenging. We will be clearing out their apartment and finding a place for my sister to live.

I am also trying to take care of me and my hubby. Whew! Just thinking about it all makes me woosy. Is that how you spell that? lol

Anyway, life goes on....we are also still trying to get moved so we can completely unpack and get the internet going.

Well, I hope you are all doing well and that you have a great weekend. Take care.


  1. I'm glad your mom seems content to stay in that facility. Maybe things are starting to turn around for you. I hope so.

  2. Janet- What a time your family has had of it in the last few months/years. I hope that it can be worked out so your Mom can live out her days in peace and safety in a good care facility. It is a lot to take care of an aging parent. I took care of my Mom when she got bad. Four years and it was a long, hard journey.

    Blessings to you- I do hope you can get moved. xo Diana

  3. Janet,
    I echo the sentiments of NanaDiana.... you have had some real challenges, and trials. I pray that you will feel the comfort and inspiration of the spirit, so that you may know how to accomplish the things that you must.
    You'll be in my prayers.

    Smiles :)

  4. Hi Janet ~ so good to see your post, although I'm sorry to hear about these challenges for you...
    It sounds like you are right in the middle of it all!
    I'm praying you will get strength from the Lord to see this through.
    Autumn blessings!

  5. I missed this post earlier. I was away for a while, too. Sounds like you have had a lot on your plate- xo Diana


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I always enjoy hearing from you. Have a wonderful day. :)
