Its been 8 weeks since Mom moved in. She's frail, has diabetes, CHF, Kidney Failure, Pulmonary Hypertension. Many times she is not able walk well, uses oxygen full time. Lots of challenges. Anyway, I realized this week that I feel more peaceful. I have more acceptance. I find I'm not taking things quite as personally. So I guess we have a new normal. I know that another medical crisis, fall or something will happen, but I'm appreciative of the peace I feel right now.
Thanks to you all for sharing your experiences and letting me know that my feelings and experiences are universal. I helps a lot.
