Moms 98th Birthday Today

Here it comes. The onslaught of calls from family. Oooohhhh mom you’re 98! How does it feel? Lets go for 99! Oooohhh grandma you’re 98! I hope you live forever grandma!


Hell lets go for 100. Why not?
Uh huh....and me? What do they hope for me? That I live long enough to take care of her?
8 years. I’m so done.

Here comes Thanksgiving. All the calls pour in again. And then we have Christmas, in which I have to go out and buy, pack and ship a little something for all the families “from their mom and grandma”. And then we have New Years!

They all live out of state. They are all living their lives unaffected. I am living mine waiting to live.

I read your submission over and over, it makes me laugh - the relatives are so out of it. Then I think no one even calls here- they are afraid I might ask them to help with something .

But if my mom lives to 98 I know she’ll outlive me- my health is suffering. Is there really a purpose to all this?

Mom's 98th Birthday Today

I hear you! My mom is 85 and I feel the way you do.

While my health is deteriorating, she is thriving.

Where will any of us be when we are finally done? How much time will we have left and what kind of shape will we be in?

Each morning when I hear the click of her walker as she walks down the hall, my heart sinks and I dread another day.
I never thought I'd feel this way but I can't help it.. none of us can.

8 years is a long time. Somebody else needs to step up to the plate or at least help to get her into a facility.

I wish you well.
