Re: Independence and dignity restored.
Paula, I know right? My mom was ill earlier this year and needed a lot of help at home. I think it was awkward for both of us at first, but after a bit, you realize that parts are parts. If you're the younger person...you're gonna look just like that sooner than you think. If you're the older, accept that those days are gone and realize that with all the droops and sags comes the wisdom not to give a crap.
Glad you had a good day! I think you are on the tail end of your journey, friend. Seems not long ago I was reading "17 days til surgery" and wishing my surgery was only 17 days away.
