Yesterday, I told some family members to be prepared for "the end". Today, my mother is actually doing slightly better than yesterday. Now, I feel guilty as hell for being overly negative and scaring everyone. This could end in two weeks or could go on for months. Has anyone else had this problem?

Whenever my hubby is in crisis I do a daily (or more often) email update and send it out to the complete contact list. This only takes two or three minutes, insures that I tell everyone exactly the same thing. And keeps me from endless conversations.

I understand exactly where you are. It happened to me a good dozen times over a year before Mom died. It is difficult to walk the line keeping everyone accurately informed when there are such ebbs and flows. You are doing the best you can . . . I began to term it in number of hours that she was more clear in her thinking, sleeping, laughing, out with me in the car running errands. I hope this helps. You are in my prayers.
