I talked to her on the phone Monday night, and yeah, she is really struggling with this situation. It's something she thought she'd never have to do, and I totally understand how she feels given that my own mother has a whole host of health issues and the day may come when I will have to make the same decision.

Hang in there, Marianne. You know my thoughts and prayers are with you and your Mom.

Stand Tall Marianne. Hope that the Good Lord will allow her to be healthy enough to stay out of an assisted living home.

Oh, Marianne - - - my prayers are with you and your mom.... I faced that same decision a few years ago, and it was the hardest thing I have ever done... On top of all of the self flogging, I was put down by relatives who had no idea of what all was going on... You have to do what you have to do to keep your mom safe and to insure your own mental and physical health.... My mom had 5 years that she probably wouldn't have had at home... Was she happy??? I don't think so, but she was safe and well cared for.... Hang in there....

Thank you all for your prayers and concern. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it.

I have been running around all week meeting with Mom's docs, social workers and taking tours of assisted living facilities for her, as I want Mom to go to a facility where she will be taken excellent care of. I have struggled with my emotions during this time but I know after asking for God's guidance, doing some deep soul searching and a lot of tears, talking with Mom's docs, as well as my friends both here at SF and those I have known most of my life, that I am doing what I am doing out of love and concern for my Mom's safety and well being. I never dreamed in a million years that I would ever be placed into this position and it is extremely sad.

Please continue to keep my Mom in your thoughts and prayers. I love her very much and will do whatever it takes to protect her so that she will have the best quality of life possible.

Love,
Marianne
