Carpe Diem Extra December 12th 2019 An update on my mom
Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
I love to give you all an update on the health of my mom. You all are so supportive and loving. I am glad that you all understand that my mom is more important now than our Haiku Kai. It makes me sad that I had to make this decision, but ... well taking care of mother takes all my time.
I am also happy that my co-workers at the nursing home where I am working, were so kind to take my shifts. That gave me the possibility to take care of mom 24/7 while she is waiting for a room in the nursing home.
My mom's dementia is progressive, she recently left her home in the middle of the night searching for my brother and my dad and couldn't find them (both are deceased), but she couldn't find her way back to home also.
lost in her thoughts
she searches for the dead
between the living

PS. I will try to create our special feature "Seven Days Before Christmas" ... it has become a tradition here at CDHK.
