Robin, I've been away from SM for months - just a hectic time -but just signed on and saw this. I'm so sorry to bear about your mother. You and your family will be in my thoughts.

So sorry for your mother. Hope that all goes well. I will be praying for you.

Thank you ALL so very, very much. I got home a few minutes ago. I was hoping to be there when the Orthopedic Dr. made his rounds but a rain storm was coming. Had I waited it out, I would have gotten caught in rush hour traffic. I ended up getting caught in the driving rain anyway but thank God I made it home safely. I hate driving in bad weather but doing it on no sleep is just not smart. Now that I'm here though and have held and loved my babies, I'm feeling a little energized.

We're hoping for surgery in the morning followed by in patient rehab. She lives alone in an extremely rural area (can't even get cell service there) so she'll be rehabbing at a facility. She is very agitated and confused but a lot of that is because of her pain meds and her lack of sleep.

Thank you all for your prayers. I'll update tomorrow. In the meantime, I'm going to try to get a tree up for Christmas. I can't believe it's the 20th and I haven't done it yet. I may just fall asleep underneath it tonight...

I would hate to live in a world without dogs, glass, or wine...

Oh, your poor mom! I'm so sorry about her arm and hope it heals quickly. Since she has dementia, is she going to be living with you or your sister after rehab? I know how drained you must be. I just drove home in the rain after visiting with my mom in the hospital. Enjoy your night with your babies and tree but try to get some much needed and deserved rest tonight!

Robin, so sorry to hear about your mom. I hope she gets her surgery soon. I will certainly add your mom and you in my prayers. Hugs to you. And falling asleep under the Christmas tree sounds beautiful and peaceful.

Robin - I'm so sorry to hear about your mom. I'm sending prayers to her and you and lots of hugs. It's so hard when we're responsible for them and seeing them suffering. I hope the surgery goes well and the rehab. It sounds like a bad scenario, having dementia and living alone in a rural area. Maybe she can get into some sort of assisted living facility near family so that she can be taken care of but still be able to see her loved ones.
Don't worry about the tree. We're not superwomen, though we always try to prove that we are. This was the first year in the 28 I've been married to Jim, that we didn't put a tree up in our apt. We always go to a tree farm and cut one fresh. Our brand new car doesn't have roof racks and we couldn't get the attachments we needed to be able to carry a tree. We did get one to stick out on the deck in VT because that was so close they could lash it to the roof. You do what you can do. Last year I didn't get cards out. I've finally gotten old enough not to worry so much and do what I can.
Let us know how your mom does tomorrow and get to sleep early tonight.
