Hi everyone,

I just noticed that the last time I posted was exactly one month ago on Friday February 7th. 

Mom is still hanging in there. Last month there were a couple times when I really thought she was going to "go."  She calls it "going poof"

The other day she called me and said "I feel like I will go poof today."

She is having a hard time. She hurts all over from head to toe.  She has a bad sore on her bottom because she can only lay on her back sitting up a little and that puts pressure on her there. Seems like there is nothing that can be done about it. Everything we try hurts her. :( 

She still has trouble swallowing.  She won't eat unless I am there. So she doesn't have breakfast and I go there for lunch and dinner every day.  There are not enough people there for one to just sit with her while she eats. Eating means drinking really because she just uses a straw for almost everything now. She has only been drinking milk and vanilla shakes. And likes yogert and vanilla ice cream. She can have those sometimes when the slight thickness of them doesn't bother her throat.

She seems to have a better attitude towards things. A slightly better one. :) That is a good thing. I tell her that she should have faith in herself and in God. He is the only one that can give her comfort and peace when I am not there. We say a prayer each evening before I leave. I hope that she can hear it and that she remembers it so it can help her during the night.

Well that is all for now. I hope all of you are well. I pray for you and your families each night. :)

Thank you for your support and prayers.  Please let me know how you are doing.

Take care, be safe and warm and enjoy life. God bless you all.
