I've just got back from dropping Mum off for her respite stay and my heart is breaking. Even though I have talked things through with Mum several times over the last few days and took the time to include her when organising her packing yesterday she was still so shocked when I told her it was time to go this morning. As we wlked into the home and she said she was going to be a prisoner and she had this look on her face that cut me to the core. I can only hope that, once she has settled in, she will feel better or be more accepting. WHY DOES THIS HAVE TO BE SO HARD!!!!!
