I have been waiting to write this post.
Waiting to know for sure
because it's so new.
It's just day's new.
But, I have some friends that
deserve not to have to wait
a minute longer to hear
what God has orchestrated.
Friends that have been praying for us, supporting us,
loving us, caring for us.
Through all of my tears,
fear and hard prayer,
God was always there.
And I knew that in my heart.
I have always known that God was there
supporting me even more
than even my dearest friends.
That didn't mean that I couldn't be sad.
He doesn't expect us to go through life
smiling all of the time.
Just believing all of the time.
He was also working in
(He's the ultimate multi-tasker).
He has been working in
the people's lives who were
working with my mom.
Doctors, nurses, caregivers,
my brothers and sisters.
He has blessed my mom with
the best care and the most wonderful
caregivers and children.
All working for what's best for mom.
Mom was settled in a most wonderful
memory care facility for dementia patients.
She has had doctors that changed her meds
for the better, and
children that have given up time
and money to protect mom and do what's
best for her.
I can't press that point enough.
Because, you see, a miracle has happened.
Remember that this all started with mom falling
asleep at the wheel because she hadn't slept
for seven days?
That inability to sleep continued for two months.
She would sleep for a couple of hours
now and then, but never fully slept.
Her doctor was changed,
her meds were changed
There's so much information that
I'm just going to leave it at that.
When mom was settled in the memory care
facility, her life took a dramatic turn.
She started sleeping.
Her sleep meds were changed by
a new doctor and the meds
Mom has slept every night since
Sleep deprivation postures
She has grown stronger
and more like my mom by the day.
She still has moments of confusion
(If you know me,
you're thinking that it's genetic),
but SHE IS BACK.
It is her desire to live at the ranch
with Frank, me and our "doggies".
So, I'm on my way to Kalamazoo
to see my mom and
to bring her home.
Annette is flying up to drive
back with me.
When we made those plans
little did we know that we'd
be bringing my mom and her Sophie
back with us.
Thank you for your prayers, support, cards to mom
and for your love,
and for your love,
