CA girl again

I don't have the time or mental energy to write a second post about where my mom is. Please click here to catch up.

What that means for me is that I will remain here in CA for as long as my Mom needs care. I feel bad about staying in a lot of ways - especially for John and Caleb and those that help me care for them when I am gone. Thank goodness John not only understands but wants me to care for her too.

I know I would never forgive myself if I left. No one gets my Mom like I do. Women are complicated like that. I can offer her my care and I can be her voice until the end. I could never leave her side when she needs me. She gave up 2 months of her life to get my children to this world safely and securely. The least I can do is give her 2 months of myself to make sure she leaves this world safely and securely.

I hope you all have a Merry Christmas. Our cards have been ready to send out for 3 weeks now and are still sitting here...maybe tomorrow!

Wow Lisa...You sure do know how to make a girl cry. It's hard not to shed a tear or two when I hear all that you're going through. Your mom is lucky to have a daughter like you. I hope you have a wonderful, memorable Christmas together as a family!!!
