Big Mom

My MIL is under hospice care for 2 days a week and has been for about 6 months now. She is a very independent woman and very hard headed....like most of us are. She has end stage COPD and can barely walk across the floor without giving out of air. She uses a walker and has been on oxygen for over 2 yrs. Her mind is starting to get bad and she is forgetful and has a few times where she mumbles and such. The Dr. says this is just part of her disease and will only get worse with time. Monday night (11th of Jan) she called our house at 10:30 PM which is a oddity for her. She normally goes to bed at 7PM. She said she needed Bill so he got on the phone. She was saying all sorts of strange things. Said she needed to go to the church and get her car cause she had left it up there earlier when the meeting was over. She needed to lock the door to the church and that she had a bedroom in the back of the church. Then she kept saying she had try to work over to Johns but came back and her walker was outside and she needed it. Bill told her she was just dreaming. She said well its awful real but I still need you to come get my walker out of the backyard. So, Bill went up there and found her walker out in the back yard and her grabbit stick behind the screened in porch. So, she did go outside that night. She has had really bad memory this week and even called Bill to ask him what things are. She couldn't remember my name yesterday. She is getting real confused. Wanted to start this journal so we would have an account of what was going on with her. Its seems the end is getting closer for her or else she is just going to get worse and worse and suffer. I pray that doesn't happen.

"Water Aerobics"

Well, I have done 2 days of water aerobics. It has been alot of fun and I can feel a change in my body!! Yeah!! I am eating right and leaving off sugar and starches.
Bill has lost about 25 lbs in the last 4 months. I hope I can do that too.

Its suppose to snow here tomorrow. Maybe an inch or a little more. Well, its so funny because schools are already announcing school & work closings for tomorrow and it hasn't even snowed yet. I guess the south is just not as prepared as the folks in the north.

Going to church, then home and trying to stay warm! If it snows I will post pictures.

"Two thousand and ten"

Can you believe its already 2010? I was talking with a friend the other day and we were talking about how far technology has come since we were kids! I can remember us laughing and talking about how one day we'd be able to call somebody and they could see us and we could see them. We thought it was impossible, but today I have purchased a webcam and I can call my grandchildren and see them on my computer screen and talk to them in real time and see their faces!! Its absolutely amazing and so great! I have a friend that I met on line from Australia and we exchanged Christmas cards this year. Its so exciting to meet new people and find out that we all are so much alike. WE just want to be loved and understood...

I started a new eating habit this year. To eat better foods and try to help myself have a healthier life style. I even joined a gym with my husband. It is a Wellness & Aquatic Center. So, I do the swim aerobics and he does all the other stuff. Hopefully when I get stronger I will be able to join him in all his exercise. Its fun and I really enjoyed it. No one was a skinny, young thing in a bikini. They all looked like me and some were even older!! I go again in the morning and I am looking forward to it.

Praying that God will bless my family and friends with a wonderful year. Good health and blessed times together. Thank you Lord for all you have done for me and are going to do for me this year.
