Well it is done. I feel weak with relief. I had a rotten night's sleep with nightmares all night. My heart was racing and my hands were shaking. I needed to be calm and strong.
But it was hard. Everyone was relying on me to be the strong one and in reality I was the only one who could do it. Even being in the medical profession gave me little insight on being on the 'other side'.
I took my Mother to respite today.
For 3 weeks.
So my Dad could have a rest from the 24/7 consistency.
Heck, so we could all have a rest really knowing she is in very good hands. Knowing she will settle in to the routine. Knowing that my Dad is refilling his batteries to continue on.
She was not too keen let me tell you but I left her sitting and chatting to some people.
We love you Mum and know that if you were yourself, you would support this decision.
We know it is the right decision.
But it doesn't make it any easier.
Ciao for now
just Martha xx
