Hello Everyone, I know I have not been on in a very long time and I don't post real personal stuff on facebook but my sister and I have had to pitch in a lot more with my mom. she does not cook for herself any longer and in the last few days she now does not remember to eat unless someone is there other wise she forgets. we have found a nice assisted living place that is super close to work, and both of our houses she is really going to fight though. she says she has no reason to move for another 4 or 5 years. this place is really nice lots of windows and nice apartments and not too big so I think that is great. its pretty new. everyone that we have talked to said its rare that someone moves in a assisted living place because they want to so staff is used to having people really angry. the director was telling my mom that usually after 2 weeks the person feels that they should of moved in sooner. my sister leaves on business this week so I will be doing all the meals for the week unless we can convince my niece to help out for breakfast and lunch. and when my sister gets back we can move her in. she is not gonna like this that is for sure. she keeps complaining cause she cant have her car still.

Cathy,
I think you are doing the right thing. It is a very difficult decision but it sounds like it definitely is time. They will be able to care for your mother. Once she settles in she will be fine. She'll probably give you a real hard time at first but then she will enjoy it. I hope your niece pitches in. She must be in college so she's on summer break or is she still in high school? She might surprise everyone and help out without any fuss. You never know with someone her age. 

How is Abbey? 

I'm glad you posted. I have missed seeing you in GT.

Abbey is doing great, the funny thing is that we are trying to get my mom to gain weight but Abbey and I have gained 10lbs mainly cause we sit around with my mom instead of walking. well the place had a open house on Saturday so we could pick out a apartment, my mom just flipped out and would not go, so we picked out a apartment for her, we did not want to do that but she really flipped out so we told she is gonna have to try it out and if its really bad she will have to move in with my sister and we will have to hire someone to stay there, she does not want that either. the director of the place said it would help if her doctor thought this was a good idea, which is no problem her doctor  wanted her to go into a place 5 years ago. It is definitely not easy. My niece has been there this week from 9-1 since Teresa is out of town and I told her that I cant go to her place for all 3 meals, so Sloane has helped out a lot, Sloane is gonna be gone for the next week she is taking some college courses at Boston college. she has another year of high school but she does want to go to Boston college when she graduates

Hi Everyone, Just thought I would pop in and say Hello here, nothing much going on in my neck of the woods so to speak, had a busy week last week going out to lunch with different friends, then had drinks with my girlfriends last Sunday.

Next Saturday my brother and I are off to my daughters for the weekend, to pick up her small freezer, I have bought it off her, as I need more freezer room these days with Les my brother coming back to live with me, but it will be nice to catch up with her and my granddaughter as well.

Our kids go on half year break this coming Friday, so they should be off for about 10 days I think.

We are having nice sunny days, considering it is Winter here, but it is still quite chilly outside then by 3pm it is freezing again, we really need some rain soon or we are going to have a shortages of water come Summer.

Well that seems to all the new I can think off, so I will head off, have a great week dear friends catch you all again soon.

Kathy - Sometimes it is so difficult to take care of an aging parent especially when they don't want to do something that is good for them. It's worth a try asking her doctor to tell her she NEEDS to go and has no choice. She also might need a medication to help her calm down and understand why. Many elderly people do need something. I would call the doctor and tell him what's going on without your mom hearing the conversation. The elderly can get paranoid and think you are plotting against them. I'm pretty sure the woman you spoke to at the place you chose the apartment was right that once she is there a week or two she will change her mind.

My nurse just rang the doorbell. Sorry, I have to go now. Good Luck with everything.

Kathy - It's been a few weeks since we have heard about how your mom's transition is going or not going. I know when her granddaughter - my niece Robin or one on her grandson's spoke with my mom she was a lot more amenable to listening to them. Personally, one of the biggest regrets I have about the entire thing was being too ill to having her move in with me and Phil. Unfortunately or maybe fortunately none of us could have been more surprised when she passed not long after that. Hindsight is can be a wonderful thing but usually it just gives the Only if or What if guilts. If we could foretell the future so many decisions would be different. The most important thing to remember is that whatever decision you came to was the right one at the time you made it. I know how hard it was to make this decision concerning you mom. There is no other decision as difficult to reach as the one you have had to make or are still considering. Everyone's decision making process, as is everyone's parent, is a world upon itself. You can only go on what you think best and really talk about it with your family. Remember that all of you will be living with the decisions that not only you but the family made. I think it would have helped my sister and I if we could have written down the reasons for our choices. Something we could read when we were alone with ourselves. I don't think this might have changed out minds but the biggest thing I hope it would have done is to help understand why we all chose as we did. This is one of the hardest family decisions ever needed to make. Something I think we all need to make this decision and put it in writing while we are still cognizant of what we are doing. Having regrets is a natural part of this process. Whatever decisions you and your sister come to will be done out of love. I know for my future I will write down what I prefer and have my husband and son be aware of and if she is of age (I sure hope so) Addie will be part of it also. I have been through this 3 times; twice as a daughter and once as a D-I-L. Working with my sister and doing what my mother wished was easiest as she was very clear in what she wanted. My mother was the decision maker for my dad. I had just turned 21 2 weeks before my father's death. It was 3 months before my wedding so I was in no emotional state to help out at all. My sister helped out but it was my mom and my future husband, Phil, who made the decisions and saw them through. For my mom it was me, Phil and my sister plus my mom's 3 grandchildren as they ranged from their late teens to their mid 20's and were old enough to help. It still would have been easiest if my mom would have put her wishes in writing. Something you might want to talk to your mom about. Even if she says I'm putting my wishes into your hands say you will need it written down because you will be too upset when it happens. The very least you can try and have her do is to talk about it with all of you at one time so there will be no confusion. There still will be but it would make it much easier if it is written down or at least voice recorded. You will know what is right for you and your family. I don't know who is the voice of cool, calm decision making but whoever that is would be the best. Just remember it needs to be as close to what would be the best for your mother as possible. If she is not reasonable any longer then you and your sister are the final decision makers. It depends upon what her will says. I would contact her lawyer to tell them what you are all about to do. He might be a good person to use as an intermediator. 

I only give these as suggestions to help you through these big decisions. My father's death was sudden, my mother's we knew was about to happen but we helped her with hers right after my father died. She live another 26 years but my mom's never changed. It was split right down the middle between my sister and I. Everyone got to choose any momento(s) they wanted to have. These were not written in stone but we did not even have one fight about it when the time came. This is as my mother would have wanted it. She hated us arguing and did not want to bring contention to us.  
Josh being an only child and Addie an only granddaughter makes decisions a little easier for us. 

I just realized how long this message is. Use what is good for you. It's different for each family dynamic. Whatever you and your sister choses to do for your family will be right also as long as you are all totally honest with each other. If you ever want to talk about it send me a private email or call. I think you have Phil's cell phone number. Whatever you need just remember I am here for you. 

That goes for anyone else who is reading this. I would be more than glad to give advice as long as we all realize that one size does not fit all.

Sylvia

I can't wait until you come over to Aimoo either. The games are so much easier to do. Would you like me to move the games over once your settled. I'll ask Debs if she is able to help also but she is very busy at this time.

Just wanted to say that our weather has been crazy lately. When it's not blistering hot, we're having lengthy thunderstorms which limits my time on the computer, plus I have an 85 pound dog shaking on my lap, sometimes all afternoon and evening if the storms don't start in the middle of the night. My poor girl - she was okay when Gaby was with us - he was the scared one, but she knew he would protect her so she didn't mind. Now she's the scared dog.

This morning I woke to a gorgeous day of temperate sunshine, a cool breeze while I was picking up the yard at 6:30 and even now the temperature is beautiful.

Hope everyone else is doing well.

Hugs,
Sharon
