Well, Sister told me last night I shouldn't blog today. That I should take the day off. But, I just couldn't not write in my website journal. For all to read...including myself and my family.
A real touching moment last night.
You know, I think we all go through times of extreme love as well as irritation at our siblings. At least my family has I'll admit. I know they've been irritated at me many times. It happens in every family, I'm sure of it. Not really sure why I'm saying that, it just popped into this sponge of a 5:30 a.m. brain that I'm sportin.
Last night was a wonderful hour of peace between four siblings who dearly love each other, and our mother.
Clay arrived last night. I feel so sorry for him because on top of a pretty severe case of the flu he developed Bells Palsy. It will go away (and Kim and I thought he looked pretty distinguished with it!) haha!
Anyway, what a bonding hour we all had. Just the four of us and mom. Making a tough decision to remove the tubes. Mom would have wanted this. She NEVER complained. She NEVER wanted us to worry about her. I hear people complain about their moms over and over. You know just about neediness and stuff and I just have never been able to enter in to that conversation because mine never complained about anything. Another blessing God has bestowed on me. A lesson that I hope I will carry throughout my life. I want to follow in my mother's footsteps.
So, as I'm writing right now, I want to tell you the advice from the doctors, nurses and hospice, we made the really difficult but compassionate decision to remove all tubes from mom and just continue pain management.
I want to thank each and every one of you for your continued prayers for myself, my family and especially my mom.
Please continue to pray for peace and relief from pain as my mom makes this transition to be with our Heavenly Father.
May God bless you today and every day.
Have a wonderful Wednesday y'all.
