Last evening was my mother's final day after not drinking anything for two days. I can't even begin to explain her appearance, but it was the saddest thing I've experienced. Perhaps she weighed 70#. My brother & I & DH were with her. Bless her soul, she held on for so long with her dementia that took her from the positive person she was & the sense of humor we admired. She always said, it's "Mind Over Matter". That saying is profound to me.
Bless all of you who have lost their Mothers & those of you still caring for a parent.
