    Oops!! Yes!! DH off to work is what I meant. I always joke with my DH that I need a wife too, how is it fair that he gets someone to organize his life and I don't have that. ;) He never commented that he needed a husband though :rotfl2:

    Lisa I think I had me days for the 2 days I did nothing but read books I already read

    I did get Richard showered & shaved (he was getting alittle to much hair on his face - can't have that at school so I can't let it get out of control)

    need to get James in the shower before the Rock House people show up

    got a couple of sketches to try from Nan's link 287 & 275 (I think)

    Afternoon all - well, Mom is still hanging on. My sis went in with Dad yesterday to see Mom. She hadn't seen her in 10 days and She said she saw no change in Mom other than she is not talking. She said she looked good and she drank half off her noon milkshake and ate some ice cream. Now that they have upped her meds (morphine) to four times a day, sis thinks the pain has ebbed enough for her to want to eat a little.

    She also met with the hospice nurses and they believe Mom is entering a new phase but for the moment - she remains basically the same. She was healthy, no bedsores, no showing any signs of dying, nothing. They have seen her go a couple of days without water and her liquid shakes before BUT what was really concerning to them were the changes in Dad.

    Hospice and sis said Dad is ADAMANT that Mom has changed – that up until last Friday, she knew who he was. Wendy says that Mom hasn’t known who anyone was for weeks and when she tried to tell Dad that, he got upset and told her she was wrong and that he knew what he was talking about and that Mom had known who he was up until last Thursday. She dropped the subject ( Dad hasn’t slept well in a week) but said Dad’s perception is different than hers, that he sees what he wants to see and apparently that perception for him has now changed. His current emotional state is probably due to Mom not talking, not recognizing him like he thought she was before. That’s probably why he wants to be there with her everyday - to see if she changes again. On a good note, he did seem more relaxed once she drank her shake and ate some ice cream so maybe he will relax a little. He even told sis he would probably let her take care of Mom on Monday and he'll take the day off.

    So the rollercoaster ride continues...I'm staying busy to keep my mind occupied. Going to scrap this afternoon since my Friday chores are done for now. Scrapping always makes me feel better!

    Lisa - thanks for the offer to chat, but I'm ok for now. :flower3:
    Mom has had this for 10 years (she is 75) and her Mom had it for five years (she passed away in 2007 at 90!). This is why a became a scrapper...just in case...

    Hope everyone has a Happy Friday!

    Becky

    Becky, happy to hear your mom is eating a bit, sure that makes you all feel better!
    Good that your dad is willing to take a break, he needs to take care of himself too.
    Is your mom at home or in a hospice care unit?
    I'm hear anytime you need to talk :hug:

    You can have the storms! Although it rolled right over, thunder that shook the house but only rained about 10 mins. Just long enough for me to shut all the windows.

    Lisa, wish I was further along. I'm not packing loads of things, that would be easier just loading in the car and taking over, like clothes, groceries. I did last time because I couldn't do lifting. Ds is going to gmas the day of the move. Others will be working! Haha they are not happy. My mom thinks it will go faster if they don't "help" but I have plenty for them to do. :)

    :goodvibes That's my thoughts, they can do something. Last time we had movers so they didn't have to worry about doing anything. I am sure I can find plenty of light stuff for them to haul in and put away. :)

    pack pillows, towels, stuff animals in plastic bags will be light and easy for them to lug in.
    when you get to the house have the little girls put their toys back in the doll/barbie house, kitchen that will keep them busy for a while!
