Queen of May
"This is how the days go, mostly, no matter where we are. Each day there are new signs of a decline in Mom’s health. She is no longer taking pain pills, having been switched to a PCA pump connected via a needle in her belly. Re-seating the needle is a painful process- after the needle is moved to a new spot, it can take six to eight hours before she is comfortable again. It is a testament to Tammie that the one time she took care of it at the river, Mom felt no pain. Mom’s primary nurse with hospice sewed her a little pink bag to carry the pump next to her. It is lovely."
