It was 2 years ago today that a sort of miracle happened. I think some of you remember that time for me was pretty sad from another board. I was at home with two critically ill parents. They were both in hospice, last rights perfromed on both of them. Mom seemed to be doing better but Dad never came back and we lost him on the first day of spring 2007. Easter was earlier that year. Anyhow I wasn't sure that Mom would really get any better until Good Friday's dinner. Dad was still alive but in the hospital. My niece prepared a wonderful stuffed baked flounder. It was delicious and each serving was WAY too big. Well my Mom not only finisher hers, which made to my absolute joy and relief, but asked if I was going to finish mine. Well my Mom's weight was around 100 pounds at the time. To see her eat was an Easter blessing. I knew she would make it. She lived two more years and had a very good quality of life. We were proud that she never had to go into a nursing home, as per her request, we were able to comply. Mom passed away this past January 2 days after her 86'th birthday. I miss her daily.
