Hello Joe, Tweety, BCgradnurse, and those who may follow (Nel, nursej22, Steph, Spidey'sMom, Dianah, and whoever visits later.
Yesterday I sat with step-Mom for a couple hours. She mostly slept. The hospice nurse had put her on an O2 cannula. She hadn't hat more than a few teaspoonfuls of water or Ensure for almost a week.
She died in her sleep, as she wanted about 8:00 pm. ISisyer was dealing with Holy Week music so I made phone calls and told the hospice nurse where to send her remains. She took care of that part. (I'd already given the mortuary her information.
Sister plans to go there and deal with her belongings in about an hour. I'll go with her, but let her pick out a casket.
For years we camped at Doheny State Beach Campground for much of Spring Break. Mom and Dad, sisters, Grandma, and a couple friends camped with two tents in one campsite.
On Good Friday we went to 6:00 am mass as San Juan Capistrano Mission, kneeling on the OLD wooden kneeling benches ad the wood grain dug into our knees. (Grandma brought a pillow.) The said The Stations of the Cross. We generally returned to the campground for surfing and breakfast about 10:00 am. We would check out early Holy Saturday morning, park in the day visitors lot, surf a couple hours, and go home.
