Mom had a bad night last night… so-so day today. When I arrived at 6pm, she had been sleeping for about an hour and half. She had to be exhausted; she was up pacing and hollering all night and hadn’t slept all day either. The only thing she’d had to “eat” was half of an Ensure.

She woke up after a short while and was very quiet, but peaceful and content. She has returned to staring at the ceiling with eyes full of wonder. I wish I could describe it… it’s just something you have to see. It’s been weeks since she had done this. It’s disturbing and comforting all at one time (and yes, I realize that doesn’t make sense).

I did get her to drink a glass of juice and a full Ensure, and she was dozing off as I left.

I hope tomorrow is a better day.
