Flower, “reading” her Mom’s book.
So honored for the great write up ! Get a hint of my story and journals.
Working full-time, a teenaged son, hard working husband and household to run…..
Mom grew to be my top concern and I was there to speak for her, care for and protect her. I learned about many elder care issues. Driving, living alone, assisted living facilities, convalescent centers, elder attorneys, DPOA, Medical paperwork, and most importantly what I “COULD” and “SHOULD” have done.
Compassion, fierce determination and defensiveness, patience, love, rage, determination and frustration.
I would do it all again.
I miss you Mom.

Yes, we do it all out of love. Love for the one who mothered us and gave us birth. Love for the one now ravaged by a terrible disease. One for whom we would do it all over again. Thanks for posting. Your thoughts bring back my own care for my mother, with Alzheimer’s, who has passed on now. Best wishes to you.
