United Terminal at SFOUnited Terminal at SFOAt the airport, I spoke again to Hospice to get an update on my Mom’s condition, and became more and more convinced that my Mom had decided that it was not yet her time. We have thought she was at death’s door at least a dozen times in the past two years she has been on Hospice – yes, that’s right, two years on Hospice – and each time, she bounces back. Originally when I got the call from Hospice a few days ago, I thought that this would be just another one of those times. In fact, when I called Andrew to tell him what was going on, he told me, “You know she’s going to rally. She always does.” However, Hospice and my sister-in-law who is a nursing home nurse assured me that this time was different and that there would be no rally.

Needless to say, when I arrived at the nursing home first thing the next morning, my mom was up in her wheelchair in the dining room being fed an entire bowl of oatmeal. She actually greeted me with, “Oh hi. What are you doing here? Did you come to see me?” I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. I think the little drama queen just missed me.
