MIL


      I just love the double petunia's.
    
     Just got back from my MIL's.  Last week she weighed 125, this week 122.5.  Last month she weighed 145. Oct she weighed 165.  Also this morning she started to have pain in her back.   Hospice is getting her a different bed since the one she is on is so uncomfortable.  Her pastor came and gave her communion and some prayers.  Also of concern is she doesn't remember some of the people that came to visit.  Doesn't remember them even being here.  Doesn't remember people in old pictures.  Just really getting bad after having a good couple of weeks.  She is funny though.  Her paster had hip surgery and had trouble getting out of the chair.  My MIL stood up to help him.  I said, God no, we will have you both on the floor and helped him,  good for a chuckle or two. 

     She told me if the worse happened and Zoey is really bad she will take care of her until we get there.  Nice thought.


    We drop Zoey off Thursday morning again and will leave her to have the lump on her head removed and then pick her up in the afternoon with 2 new stitches give or take and minus 24.

    Well, it is pouring rain here and lightening so I am going to shut the puter down.  Have a great night all.

I'm so sorry you have to watch her deteriorate so fast.  I feel so bad for her. I hope she's not in a lot of pain.
Take care of yourself Julie.

That's a lot of weight to lose in a short time Julie. I do hope Zoey's surgery goes well. Jeannette xx  http://journals.aol.co.uk/jlocorriere05/Welcometomytravels/
