today I have agonized over making a post...as most of you know mom is in her last stages. I do all I can for her comfort and one of those is to have a therapist come in twice a week. Basically all the therapist is doing is giving moms joints "massages" that help limber and loosen the tendons since they contract and over time that too can be painful when she is moved. Mom has not talked except 1 word at a time over the past few months. I always talk to her and we have company I tell her to say hi/bye..whatever 1 word I might get out of her. Well yesterday the therapist was working moms leg and hip and with the first movement you could see on her face pain. I told her tell her to stop. Mom said STop. It took both the therapist and me by surprise so she stopped for a moment then slowly started back up with her "massages". I know this sounds so trivial but to me is was like fresh air. I also wanted to let others know that even in the late stages those moments happen....tho they seem as important as the first step a baby makes. Don't get me wrong I know she will not get better...it's just nice to see a bright side sometime....Hugs to everyone.
