Friday.




Regina had a ok day today :) She played webkinz, ate some Chilis and watched tv. She really does not want to do much. She is very easy to please. As long as she has her milk cup close to her, remote close by she is fine.:)
Today while I carried her upstairs, I started counting stairs in Estonian- Yks, kaks, kolm , neli, viis, kuus , seitse, kaheksa, yheksa , kymme-- SHE REMEMBERED .. SHe started counting with me :):) And she smiled while she did it.. AH, small things...
We also had some great visitors. First, we had Hospice nurse and Dr.Glen visiting. Seems like they know what they are doing and Dr. Glen seems to know what he is talking about. He has a special "glow" about him. Good kind of glow.
Also Mrs. Fine ( Principle of LNES) visited Regina today and brought her favorite treets in a green can :) Like I sayed, Regina is easy to please :).

On Monday we have volunteer to come in and do some "family Tree art project" with us and after that I will go to Fairhaven Mortuary to get things rollin... Nick stays home with kids... not sure How well I handle that step....

other than that nothing much. Just staying home and hanging out here. :)

Sending special love to Regina, you, Nick and Gabriel. In a situation like this one feels so helpless and useless. But hope knowing that others are thinking of you will help some.

I once told my sister when I was hugging her goodbye after a visit with her, I just wished there was some way to send some of my energy into her body and make her all well.

You are a strong person, but you are taking care of things now, like you should, because later you will probably collapse for a week from all the exhaustion.

I know when my sister passed, I didn't tell anyone at first, but it was a relief. Not that I wanted her to pass, but the fact I knew she was no longer in pain and suffering. Then I felt guilty about that for a while, until I was telling some friend, and she said, you shouldn't feel guilty. You did all you could for your sister while you were able to. Same for you, Nick and Gabriel, you've done everything possible for her.

I'm happy Regina isn't in so much pain and suffering.

When I went to my Google Reader and saw there was a new post, I told my husband I hate to read it, and he said well then don't. I told him I had to find out how things are going.

Again bless your whole family.

Just checking in to see how beautiful Regina is doing! I am glad you have some wonderful help at this very difficult time. It's no surprise she is so easily pleased ...you've been taking such amazing care of her for 10 years--each day she wakes up, she knows her momma is right by her side!!!!!! :)

about counting in Estonian, do you speak to Regina in English otherwise? Asking because you haven't written much about languages, however still she is also eesti tydruk.

Wishing Regina as much comfort as possible and to you as well. Capture these simple things.

Your family is constantly in my thoughts, Diana. I wish I was closer so I could stop by and give you a hug.
