Hi everyone....
Wow...things have been really busy around here lately.  I am still trying to get my moms place cleaned out. Been kinda hard to do because my sister is still living there.  She is having trouble finding a place to live.
Mom is doing ok. She still has trouble swallowing but she is eating or drinking her meals well.  She is loosing weight though and that scares her.  She called me the other day and said ' I think this is it ' I said what? 'I'm going to poof today'  So I called the nurses station to check on her and ran over there.  She said she felt that way coz they weighed her and she had lost more weigh. :(
Anyway...we finally moved out of the yucky place we were in. I have learned that things happen on God's timetable not mine. I will explain that more later. We are happy now with where we live. :)
Thank you ladys for all your prayers and suggestions on how to help mom.  And for our own well being. :) I have missed you all.
I am kinda back. I am writing this from the computer room at the apartment complex that we moved to. So I may be able to be here more often now. YAYYYYYYY !!!
I will also try to stop by and see how you all are doing as soon as I can.
Take care...I hope you have all had a great Easter Sunday. :)


  1. Janet..
    Sounds like you have been so busy! You must meet yourself coming and going :)
    Hope that your Mom continues to do ok. Glad that you were able to get moved, and it sounds like you are happier with the new place

    Have a good week.

    Smiles :)

  2. Janet, When we have a sick or ailing parent...we are always busy. We have to help with them, and take care of our own business. I rpay your mom will improve. Take care of yourself too. xoxo,Susie

  3. I am so glad to hear from you and know that you are finally in a place you like. I hope your sister can get moved into a place so you can get your mom's old place cleaned out. It sounds like your mom is resigned to being where she is at now.
    Blessings to you and hope to hear from you more often- xo Diana

  4. It sounds like things are improving. I'm glad you found a better place. Sorry we haven't chatted. I seem to be over the numb stage now and full into grieving so I am not very talkative about it.

  5. Glad things are going better and that you got moved. You are going to have so many up and down days with your mom, but when she is gone, you will so miss them. Even with all the chaos. Spend as much quality time with her and just listen to her voice. The words don't really matter as much as just sharing space with her. Friday was my one year mark since dad left this earth. Mom is going on 20 years on the other side now. Those old goofy days when I thought I would pull my hair out make me smile now. ;)


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