Thank you Jane Gross for helping me identiy and name some of the emotions I am going through as I take care of my 91 year old mother. She lives in a cottage about 30 ft from my house giving her some independence yet increasingly limiting mine. What I learned today is to slow down and put my checklist away. I think my mother is ready to leave....I am not ready for her to leave as evidenced by my reluctance to say the word...die. This is the hardest thing I have ever had to do.
