Mom.

     This is kinda hard to Write.I am nothing if not a Realist. My mom is in the hospital, not communicating with just about anyone, & when she talked to me, she's not making any sense. it's difficult to match that with my memory of a bright, sharp-tongued older person who was nobody's fool. There's nothing to recommend getting old; I've said it before & I get no disagreement from any older person. What doesn't hurt, Doesn't work. Her chronic health problems are finally getting the upper hand & it hurts to watch. In my opinion, she has lost the will to live. I don't know what the future holds, but I'm getting set to say goodbye to her. I don't imagine it will be terribly long.

I'm sorry about your mother. But the worse tragedy is not her death, rather her very self-destructive path towards it. I know it's not deliberate and it comes with age, but I wish she can attain peace and contentment before she passes.
