The best Mom in the World

Well my dear Mom has never got back to her normal self, pre-great escape era.
I have decided to move her to a different place. They moved her downstairs to full nursing home level and I am just not happy with the care down there. I won't go into details but the new place is only about 8 minutes away and I go to Caribou at least 3-4 times a week. So I will be able to see her way more often. Where she is now is about a half hour away. My dad is in the VA home as well so it would be so much better for all.
She was so happy to see her handsome grandson. He is home from college for the month and I am so enjoying his company. She doesn't always remember what everyone's name is but when I asked her who he was she looked at me like I had lost my mind and said, "Well that's Ryan." Like I was stupid or something lol.
She has had such a hard life and deserves to have great care. I wish I could care for her here at my home but she wouldn't be safe. 
I love you MOM.


  1. She looks like a lovely lady Kat - as are you! And, yes, your son is a handsome one. Glad to hear you got her moved and settled into a place you're more comfortable with....I thought about situation often and prayed she would be safe. Wishing you a wonderful new year full of hope and promise.....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
