Bill's MAMA.....in Life Care Center...

This has been a busy and sad week. My Mother-in-law is now in the Life Care Center . She will be 95 this coming September. Her sister was living with her and could no longer take care of her . Living by herself was no longer an option. She seems content and happy so far. Her daughter lives about fifteen minutes away from the center and will go often to see her. Bill and I will go as much as we can. Lisa (my daughter) made the Heart Quilt for her. I think she is going to feel "right at home". I pray that she does!
This was made the day before she was taken to the Life Care Center. Doesn't she look pretty? I love her dearly. She has always treated me like her daughter.

She has such a sweet face. It's so wonderful to hear that she treats you as a daughter. I'm sorry though for the heartache that you are all feeling from having to see such a big life change through.

Well Bless her heart!! I hope she does do well. She looks like a fine lady. Sad to have to go to a Life Care Center but she looks good there with the cozy heart quilt over her lap!!

She looks wonderful for 95 years old. What a cheerful countenance. I hope and pray that she does well. How old was her sister that can't take care of her anymore?

Marci, her sister is 90. It was like the blind leading the blind. I wish I could have taken her in and I would have if Bill wasn't sick. I don't get any sleep at all. It would be hard to take care of another invalid.
