We went on an outing today…to the greenhouse to get all kinds of tiny plants!! Mom went along and enjoyed it for the most part. It got kind of long, and she was more then ready to have a nap when we got back. 

She has not been doing so well. Most days it takes 2 of us to get her up and dressed and so on. We decided to now get hospice involved. They were out today. It was the same nurse that we had for Daddy. So we know she is a really good nurse! I think they will be able to help us keep Mom more comfortable. She gets sore and often doesn’t sleep well at night. Do continue to pray for us! It’s not easy making decisions for your parents healthcare!
