Subject:  Thank you and update..
Message:  Thank you all for the support. It turns out Mom has aspiration pneumonia, perhaps a little congestive heart failure, and a host of other problems. The doctor doesn't expect her to recover and has asked us to consider hospice care. We're meeting with the hospital palliative care expert in the morning. I think we will be putting her in hospice care, although I honestly don't know if she will live that long. She is so weak.

I know in my head and my heart this is probably a blessing rather than years more of fighting Alzheimer's. But I am also very, very sad. My Mom was always my best friend.

Thanks for your support and prayers.
