So very sorry for your loss. Hold close those sweet memories you have of your mother and let them comfort you. What a fun picture you have posted here. The one in the paper--she was a beautiful lady!
My heartfelt condolences to you and your family.
Thank you EA and Mike. That's the back of me in the picture, mom didn't like her picture taken and I grabbed her to turn her around on that one. I looked online today to donate her unused medicine... unless it is cancer or HIV drugs your more or less out of luck, how crazy is that? Someone that needs than can use them. I guess I will talk to her pharmacist and see if maybe he can donate them to the county health clinic, it would be a shame to let them go to waste.
I wondered if that was you! 8^)
Love the pic and the sentiment, Legion.My deepest condolences to you. She will always be part of you, you know.When my mom died under Hospice care, the nurse from Hospice came to the home to help us with "details". One of those details that surprised me, and it never even crossed my mind, was my mom's few meds that she was prescribed, one of them being morphine in the end. Together, the nurse and I accounted for them all and poured them all down the toilet. That was a little surprising to me; I thought there would surely be better, more appropriate means of disposal, if they had to be disposed of at all, and not, as you suggest, donated. But down the toilet it all went. What a waste. I understand agencies and docs don't want to be held accountable for "used" meds and all the legal implications, but there has got to be a better way. You're right, Legion, it is a waste, and a good reason why health care bills are astronomical in this nation.Treasure your time with your mother always. It is a bond that will never be broken.
Look in the mirror when you want to talk to her.....kleenex in hand. She is in you. I am at my dad's house - keeping it the way he loved it. Wish I could send him a pic of the roses......but maybe he sees them....and me. I try to live my life as though he does. Wonderful photo!
