Subject:  Update on My Mom
Message:  Thanks for all your kind responses and support. I know lots of people go through situations like my family is, but it helps to hear from others who did, and who felt hospice was the best answer.

We put my Mom in hospice care a few days ago, and she is not doing well. When she wakes up, she is extremely frightened and agitated. Because of her Alzheimer's, it's hard for her to communicate really well... I'm not sure if she's in pain or scared to die, or both. It's very hard for all of us, as you can imagine. We're trying hard to keep her comfortable and to soothe her.

We're in her room right now and I'm posting from Dad's computer. I know this is for the best, but it doesn't stop me from feeling like a scared little girl, which I think is the way Mom feels, too.

Please keep praying for peace and strength for us all. Thank you.
