I hadn't been to see my mom in over a week and I felt terrible. This weekend I made it a point to spend some time with her and I plan to take her to see Rock of Ages when it comes out next weekend. She loves that type of music and we both enjoy musicals.
Why was it so hard to go visit her lately?
My mom recently had a scary fall and since then has lost her confidence. She has slowly become more lost inside herself - her speech, moment and reactions are worse. It is heartbreaking.
She seems to be sledding. She was on a plateau - balancing on her sled nicely. Suddenly, it is like she leaned forward and shot off down the hill. The scary part is we don't know how steep the hill is or how fast the sled is going or will go.
But progression? It is happening.
I love the snow but I hope her sled ride is a long one.
