A little get away

Last week end we went to Geyser Falls. We had a lot of fun, but didn't seem last long enough. LOL! (Sorry no pictures, I forgot and left the camera in the van.)
Just to come home and find that momma's swelling is worse. She is swelling in her chest and feet. Her breathing isn't much better either. I'm not complaining, but it is so hard to watch my mom suffer so much. This is surely not how I had imagined her last days. She has worked so hard her whole life and raised 4 kids by herself. I imagined her being able to enjoy her golden years and working her flower beds. It just don't seem fair.
Take care!

I'm so sorry about your mom's health. I know saying sorry doesn't help a whole lot, but I am.

I think it's wonderful that you're there for her.

I also think it's wonderful that you got to get away for a bit. I'm sure you needed the break.

Oh, I can feel your pain in your post. I am very sorry for your Mom's pain and suffering. She certainly is fortunate to have a daughter who loves and cares for her the way you are.

Sounds like you had a good time on your trip. It's great that you took a little time for yourself and fun. Everyone needs it.

So sorry that you came back to bad news, but I am glad that you had some time to yourself. Please don't beat yourself up over taking time.

Take care.

I'm glad you were able to get out for a bit even if it was too short. I know you needed the diversion.

It really doesn't seem fair when people we love suffer. I am sorry for the suffering it causes you. You are in my prayers.
