My mother passed Wednesday in the middle of the night. We thought she only had constipation, but it was a blockage of her bowel, and it turned into Sepsis (and because of her Alzheimer's, her brain couldn't fight the infection). For the past 2 years, I have b**ched and moaned, vented & gotten so much information and assistance on this site. And I want to thank each and every person who showed me kindness & understanding. I will stay on the site for a couple more weeks, but I don't know if I will go off permanently or just come back on occasion. And hug the person you've been caring for today -- even if they've been horrible to you today (and others) because sometimes they re gone in an instant.
