All has settled down now, so I should be here regularly now. My Mother In Law passed ~ 930 on Momday, my last post here was when we had come home to rest, thinking the Hospice nurse would call through the night for us to rush back (she said she would call cuz she wasn't expecting her to make it til the morning). Well... As the human body along with God has it in their hands, she did make it through the night. My sister in law called us ~ 6:30 and said that the time was close. Unfortumately, through the night John had come down with that horrible flu that started with me the week before and Kim, the girls and Brad, my son-in-law had all come down with. So, he asked me if I woud go in his place. I'm SO thankfuk that he wasn't there, we had trouble with the step-dad (not wanting ti "let her go" and when he stepped out to go eat (he's a diabetic, as I am and so is John) my sister in law asked me if I would be willing to try to "help her along" by talking to her and re-assuring her that we all would be fine, including the stap-dad here on eatth. The hospice nurse said to just keep saying that we would all take care of each other and Kenney (the step-dad) and that we would be here for each other in times of need, etc. Well we did that and when Kenney came back in from eating (the oldest sibling went with him and kept him away as long as he could without it looking obvious to him that he was TRYING to keep him away), I whispered to Debbie NOT to move from her side unless it was to let Charles, the oldest sibling in her place. I didn't move to let Kenney return by her side and it was Charles and I at that point talking to her and holding her hands. I just kept talking to her about the beauty of Heaven and whenever Kenney would try to take it back to the negative I would tell her that it was her time and that she needed to thing about Ella and no one else and it was her day to go celebrate with her loved ones. After 40+ minutes, she passed. I received calls from the 3 siblings later on Monday evening thanking me for not letting Kenney hold her back any longer and a huge hug from John when I told her that Charles, Debbie and I helped her finally cross over. Soooo, needless to say I threw my diet caution to the wind, we ate fast food for 5 days whike we were ~ the nursing home and the preparations for the funeral. In fact, I have NOT weighed since this all began and I'll go do that right now.
Just weighed, I'm back up to 200.4 pounds, so now I will start back counting points today.
I hope you ladies are doing well now, I'll be checking in regularly and let's be the best trio that ever did WW together, ok???
