ok, so i had to take stepson to nashville dr today, didnt get to see mother until about 4 this afternoon, the minute i got there she was pointing at the area of her tv and was relentlessly saying "back,back,back" to the aid and the nurse. we played 20 questions and still could not figure it out. i told them to go on and when i figured it out i would let them know. it took me about 30 minutes, but mother made me understand her, finally, her tv had been minorly damaged, just cosmetic damage, but the point is, she would not stop until she knew that i knew what she wanted me to know. this isnt the first time we have done this, BUT, i did call them back in and show them what she was talking about. the minute i told my mom that i see the damage to her tv she was back to her happy self. so, the staff has had yet another example of the fact that I understand my mom, it may take a little while to get the answer, but i do get the answer, AND they also got another dose of mother will tell me and my dad anything she thinks we need to know about, we told her along time ago if it was important to not stop until we understood her and if it involved a person and she saw them while we were standing there to point at them and holler back, back, back...which she did do the day i found her sitting so bad in her chair, while the big bosses were in the room the techs walked by and mother pointed towards the hall and said "back, back,back" kind of hateful, but bosses already knew who put her in chair like that cause they assigned them to mother. they are learning my mom CAN communicate with me and my dad, tv has a crack on the side and smashed in on the corner, what i got out of my mom was they had hit it with the lift, which is odd because they never get her in and out of bed on that side of room, odd, but i will find out the rest of the story after the long weekend, rest assured of that!

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
A friend sent this to me..As far as I can see, grief will never truly end.It may become softer overtime, more gentleand some days will feel sharp.But grief will last as long as Love does - ForeverIt's simply the way the absence of your loved onemanifests in your heart. A deep longing accompaniedby the deepest Love some days. The heavy fog mayreturn and the next day, it may recede.Once again, it's...
