Just wanted everyone to know

I came home from my vacation today and had a wonderful week, but I need to head down to Florida on Monday because my mom is not doing well at all.

I'm not ready to do this and I'm really afraid to see her because according to my dad it's not going to be easy. She took a turn for the worse very quickly and I know this will be the last time I see her. My sister is going with me and my dad can't wait until I get there. My mom is in the hospice inpatient, but can't stay there because all of her organs are strong and this could go on for a very long time. My dad has to move her into a home and just wait and I feel so bad for him. He said she's at the point that she probably won't even know she has been moved.

I caught up on most of your posts today and I want you to know that I'm thinking of all of you and I may get to check in before I leave, but if now, keep me, my mom and my dad in your prayers.

Oh, Karen.

Sending strength, and keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. I am glad you could go to be with your father, and that he does not have to do this alone.

I too wish your mother peace.

We will be waiting for you.

Keeping you and yours in my thoughts and prayers. I know it is a difficult time for all but it is good that you will be able to be there, for both your mother and your father.

I'm so sorry, Karen. Your visit will be meaningful for your Mom but it will mean the world to your Dad. I'm glad you will be together.

I'm very sorry. It's so hard to watch our parents go through this and to deal with our own emotions at the same time. Sending prayers for your family.
