I got to sleep in today and I was in such a deep sleep I woke up thinking it was Saturday. Then the realization sunk in, another day to finish up the week. Yesterday I went to see my MIL and spent about an hour and a half with her. She is in some distress, moaning, eyes open, grabbing her sheet, uncovering herself. I got some ice water and I kept putting drops into her mouth. Then I put smaller pieces of ice into her mouth and she seemed to enjoy them, sucking them until they melted. I sought out the nurse and asked for some Tylenol for her. It is a suppository so I left as they were taking care of business. My husband went this morning and will ask for consistent pain killers to keep her comfortable.
It seems a blessing when someone just dies in their sleep. Watching this downturn in her body is a strain on us. One of her friends went with her son yesterday to see her and she was shocked at her condition. She didn't expect her to be like that. Our minister went and gave her commitment and called and said that she was very tired and was soon ready to be at rest.
Keeping busy with work as I need that.
