bitter sweet homecoming

they want to discharge mom from the hospital. second chemo didn't work, and there is nothing more they can do for her. i will be living with her and helping her for a while, making her as comfortable as possible.

this will be a strange experience for me. when my father passed away, i was in a deployment with the navy and didn't come home until he passed away. this time though, i will be living with mom to her last days.

it's been a weird couple of weeks. a week and half ago, i thought for sure mom was not going to make it. but then, for this whole week, she has been so much better that i believed the second chemo worked. it turns out it was just all the steroid they were pumping into her that made her feel better. such a great feelings of jubilance to a bitter disappointment.

it's all okay though. i know that i still feel peace and love... i just want to make her as comfortable as possible...

on the brighter note, i did make her laugh couple of times in the hospital with my wicked sense of humor... and i have finished all six harry potter books, and read couple of other books that i didn't like too much... i think while i take care of my mom, i will be reading quite a bit...

Larry,
As we all know, things happen certain ways and there are reasons why and the reasons show up here and there. I've been checking almost everyday to see how things were, as I am sure that some others probably have as well.
For what it is worth, I was with both of my parents, here at home, up until they both passed away. They both were able to allow that and not have to return to the hospital. Please feel free to write and know that someone has gone through this in a similar way and can either share and mostly just listen if you need to just write.

Each day we pray.
God bless you and you family, Larry. Suzanne

Hi Larry,

I watched the most incrediable sunrise last week, and thought of you. Tho the sun rises and sets everyday, each is always so different, some plain and some so beautiful there are not words to discride them. I saw an eagle, soaring high, just gliding on the breeze. I wished you peace....
And he will lift us up on wings of eagles....
I hope you are well.
