Life is a series of baby steps right now. I am still awake at 3am, but I'm not crying. The nursing home staff dressed Mom yesterday and she went to the dining room for breakfast. Baby steps. She is getting used to her surroundings.
I am sure things will improve once she has her hearing aide. She can hardly hear right now so that must be scary. She will feel more social when she can hear.
I am slowly going to let go and learn to trust the staff at the nursing home. Baby steps
A week ago, we thought Mom was going to die. Now we have a new reality.
Plan for today: Buy her some "nursing home" clothes and a new comforter for her bed. We are working on making her room prettier, although it is decorated quite nicely with paint and wallpaper border, etc.
Yesterday we paid for the funeral trust. Today is a fun day to make Mom happy!.
