Yesterday, my sister and I committed our Mom to hospice care. The doctor said there is nothing more he can do and that he would discharge her from the hospital, to return to the nursing home for a final stay.
We spent time with her and her pastor paid a visit as well. It was a special 2 hours we had together. She found the strength to smile and was able to squeeze my hand several times. She even opened her eyes. She had not been able to do these simple tasks for a week. I mentioned that I may get onstage at Lambda this summer and perform a drag number; this brought the biggest smile of the day. LOL
Tomorrow is her 85th birthday.
The picture was taken in her den in 1993.
I'll keep you informed and I hope you can find a moment today to include her when you talk to your Higher Power.
