    " The right thing to do and the hard thing to do are usually the same." Steve Maraboli Yesterday was a day I almost couldn't bear. My heart broke as I walked my little Mother up the walk to the care home. In truth, I had even wished she would die in her sleep rather than live...

    Physically, And Mentally

    My Mom has cancer, but she also has dementia (possibly Alzheimer's). We aren't sure which will get her first. The Mom I knew no longer exists, however, regardless of  which illness she succumbs to.
