Thanks for the continued support. Mom seems physically better today, more urine output, more awake, but somewhat less aware (if that makes sense). I have the air conditioning on but she seems warm today with so little nutrition I have to worry about insulin shock...if it's not one thing it's another.I was able to finish a Power Point presentation on increasing handicap access in our community, I hope awareness will create a community effort in providing better access to public places and maybe even build a handicap-accessible park. I'm sharing this because I find that I must take care of myself physically, emotional, and spiritually to continue to take care of my mom, this project is my sanity some days. What did or do you use to keep going?

God has given mom and I one more day together. Her hands are swollen since yesterday, but her bowels moved and there are no other signs of fluid rentention. She sleeps such a deep sleep now. She had trouble but took some liquid pain killer and a couple droppers of apple juice today.
All is quiet now, have a good night, talk to you tomorrow. Forever thankful for your thoughts and prayers. Rose
