I may not be around much in the near future . . .

It seems I never post anything positive.

Well, this is no exception.

My mother's condition is deteriorating much more rapidly than I anticipated. As some may know, my mother, who is 89, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last September.

My sister and I have been trying to take care of things, but it has reached a point where we cannot.

So, tomorrow, my sister and mother are meeting with an agency that provides hospice care. It is time. Neither I nor my sister can provide the ongoing care my mother needs.

I find myself just going through the motions or, in the alternative, in a wildly emotional state. The latter is uncommon for me, and I am having trouble adjusting to it.

The bottom line is I may not be posting here as much as I would otherwise. The main reason is, in my current state of emotional flux, I find myself posting things that I shouldn't.

I am managing to keep it together when I am at work, but that is taking a lot more will power than I anticipated.

Please wish me luck with this.



My thoughts are with you at this difficult time.Please be proud of yourselves for making the right decision....that to me shows courage and love.

Please take care of yourself too.
