The good news:
The Mother Unit feels relieved that she is looking into a future where she does not have to cook or clean up..
More good news:
If she's happier and feeling relieved, that's enough for me.
I am still gathering info for various options... and tomorrow I head out to trek around with a nursing home specialist. I hope Elizabeth can join tomorrow for some of this looking around. I just trust her implicitly. And her support doesn't suck either. She loves my mom.
And, I just gotta say that the banana bread I made passed the nursing staff's high bar of excellence... and while I am still waiting for The Mother Unit's feedback on it, I wish I'd made a loaf for me without the nuts. It smells amazing.
Baby stepping. With love.
