missyk Posted April 24, 2007 Share Posted April 24, 2007 That every child dreads from their parent when we've been battling a disease such as this. The "I know it's not long..." talk. Mom called this evening to wish Sabrina (my daughter) a happy birthday and to gloat that she made it to her birthday afterall. LOL When they were done talking Mom and I talked for a little bit. She and Ralph talked with the hospice social worker to see about some of the "paranoid" things she's been saying and see if they could come up with an idea of what was going on. Mom told me that she thinks she has her head on straight now. That she understands that she doesn't have much time left and that the sensations and feelings she's been having are all tied to that...not to any of us actually being "out to get her". I'm glad she seems more at peace now, it lightens my heart. But I'm sad, too, because knowing that she's starting to accept what's happening means she's not so p*ssed off anymore and I KNOW that's what's kept her around this long! LOL It's such a long, rough, journey. I'm humbled by the grace and dignity of those (including Mom) who've traveled this road. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
