Spoke Too Soon

Okay, so I spoke too soon. Things were going along swimmingly on Friday when I last posted. I had gone out a couple of evenings with no apparent repercussions. Well I went grocery shopping on Saturday afternoon and that seemed to be the straw that broke the camel's back.

Since then Mom has been more out of it than usual. Without me here, it becomes clear to her that she's by herself and couldn't manage alone. We spent Saturday night going over who I was, where SHE was, explaining to her that she was home and safe. Her eyes filled up when she told me that she liked me and didn't know what she'd do without me. That made me feel good and sad at the same time.
