ABC Scripture Challenge with Patter Cross - #25 - YIELD
I struggled with creating my page this time... possibly because I am going through a sad time of my life. I have peace but there is still great sorrow. My elderly mother ( 87 ) is dying of inoperable liver cancer. She lives about an hours drive away so at this stage my husband and I drive to visit her every second day. She is still alert at times - sits in a chair during the day. Because of her Dementia she does not understand she is dying even though the doctor did explain to her what is happening. I think it is best emotionally that she does not realise. She is being cared for in the Aged Care Facility she has been living in since October 2010. The staff there are doing a wonderful job of caring for her.
