My mom was so young when this picture was taken. Life was perhaps for her joyful and yearning for adventure.
Today when I called my mom, I was told by her caregiver that my mom had expressed pain in her hand and that it was both swollen and red. Normally when I ask my mom about something that I was told; like she complained of a stiff neck, my mom would answer that her neck was fine, for she would not remember that she had just recently said something about it. Not today. Today was different. My mom when I questioned her about the pain in her hand she answered that it did hurt and that she could not remember what had happened to it. Life at times can be painful, and getting old for some, is not fun. Today definately feels like one of those days.
My post on my blog is from a year ago after I had visited my mom. It was titled "Broken Heart". Can the title have been any more appropriate for how I now feel. I doubt it.
