December 18th, 2016 That'll Be Alright

December 18th, 2016 That'll Be Alright

I spent some more time with mom today. She's doing much better as the medications and care do what they do. She's naturally nervous and uncertain about the transition that's about to occur, from the hospital to the skilled nursing center.

I am too.

That was all our conversation focused on--and I kept emphasizing the positives in it all--the care she needs, she'll be closer to me and other family members up here--and she'll have some much needed social interaction.

I'm calling it a day. Today: I maintained the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget. I remained abstinent from refined sugar. And I stayed well connected with good support. That's the best I can do today--and that'll be alright.

Thank you for reading and your continued support,


  1. So hard when parents lose pieces of their independence! Your strong moral support has to be very comforting to her. God bless you both through these challenges!

  2. Good news! Difficult transition for sure but something most of us can relate to or eventually will. Your mom is very lucky to have you!

  3. Even when we are told it's good for us, change is uncomfortable, and sometimes scary. But I'm so happy she will be moving to where she can be closer to loved ones. Being surrounded by love and caring will do amazing things for her, both physically and emotionally. That's powerful, sometimes even more than medicine!
