On July 10th my 92 year old mom fell and broke her hip. She had surgery, and spent two weeks in the hospital. Once the delerium cleared and she was coming back to herself she was healing beautifully. She was a star at physical therapy. She was transferred to rehab where she passed away 16 hours later. I had been her sole care giver and legal guardian for 4 years. We were together every day. We had a lot of fun on the week ends going out to beaches and parks, community concerts and events. She had advanced dementia, but she knew me and she had a great sense of humor.
Some days it was terribly hard to answer the same questions over and over...I tried not to be impatient. I know I did a great job making the end of her life happy. She lived at home until the day she fell....I really miss her.
