I will be heading out to go see Mom shortly. My cousin and her daughter are on their way. Mom is still hanging on. I am trying to wrap my head around this whole thing. It isn't working. I can't believe I am here. I have known all summer Mom was failing and that by fall she might not be here. I tried to prepare myself as best as possible. There is no way to be ready for this. I am learning this too well right now. I have Tillie and Maia here with me. Tillie spends the night and Maia spends the day here. They are a big help. I got a nice email from Andrew and I just talked to him. He is in the same shape I am in. I told him I loved him and that we would get through this together. Somehow we will. I just don't know how right now. I already miss her.
