Thanks girls!
It was my server.... some weird thing.. fixed now.
Crazy day!! Ready for Bible study & will face packing after everyone leaves... praying for a clear head so we can get it done & leave early... but don't have much faith in that prayer... oh my, what a day!

God be with you all as you spend this final time together. Drive safe and stay focused on the task at hand so you're in the moment and not "scattered." Haste makes waste! I hope you can keep up with us while you're down there so we can know how it's all going. If you need prayer, call on us and we will lift each of you up before the Lord. It's going to be alright.

Hi
We had Bible study here tonight too, which didn't go as late, good thing... got back to preparing to leave... I 'think' I'm almost ready... but it always seems to take longer then I think to get out the door... LOL...

I'm still wired, but took some Valerian & magnesium to help me sleep.

So we leave tomorrow, as soon as we can & drive to Hope, if we can make it all the way there.... its a 12 hr drive in good conditions.

I'll try to update... Be blessed!

I hope you are having a safe and lovely drive. I know the reason for the trip is sad but you can still be thankful for all the little joys along the way. I know you see life that way, too. God bless you all, every mile of this journey. May your MIL be totally blessed and surrounded by love when she takes her final breath, in peace.

We drove from Hope this morning... heavy rain, heavy traffic... 9 hrs later we stopped in Centralia for a motel (supposed to take less than 6 hrs. to get there). Now we're only 1.5 hrs away from Battleground in normal traffic.. Had nice Chinese dinner.... motel. Tired!
Molly was a little angel... but poor her, boring day!

Oh, no! What a terribly long and frustrating day this must have been for you. I hope things go much more smoothly tomorrow, but in the meantime, try and trust that you will end up getting there at just the right time. Stay safe. Sleep well tonight.

oh that sounds awful.. So thankful you made it safe though

Poor Molly, didn't realize she was going... Of Course she was going !
We stop every 2-3 hours and run Allie and let her potty, but I bet with rain and traffic that wasn't an option

Be safe. for you and family

Hi y'all,
Washington = Rain, rain, rain here. So dark... dismal. Pretty good day though, I didn't go shopping today, which I'd planned on, but didn't feel inspired because it was so dark & wet.

DS was fun to have around. DH's BF also came to visit MIL. Good day. MIL is getting weaker, but enjoyed some ice cream tonight...

I'm doing fine, using a stationary bicycle during tv & visiting times. Loving my MIL's scale... must be out a bit, but I sure do like seeing those numbers.

Molly's enjoying playing with the other dogs... holds her own, playing with the pit bull!

Sorry the weather is so depressing .

That's great that MIL is able to visit with people.... I'm sure that's comforting.

Wow ! You are exercising 'no matter what' !! Super smart ! That will help with anxiety too..... WTG on the scale.

continue for your family.

Take that scale back home with you! Too funny. I'm glad you are finding things that MIL can eat and enjoy. Does she seem to be comfortable or is she suffering? I hope not. Are there still family members yet to arrive? Just wondering. I'm glad Molly and the Pit are making nice.

WTG on exercising while there. Like Laura said, a great way to fill the hours and keep busy. I'm sorry about the weather. It's the rainy season in the Pacific Northwest, isn't it? I believe they get a lot of rain in the winter (though we're not there yet, thankfully.)

Thank you for checking in. It's nice to hear how things are going for all of you. God bless each of you, especially your sweet MIL and your DH.

LOL.. doesn't seem like exercise, although I get 'too warm'. Yep, the scale says I'm dropping a lb a day... silly thing.
Though the visitors are greatly appreciated, its apparent that it wears her out.

Thanks, yes she is not really in pain at all. Just muscle aches from being bed-ridden, so she takes a low-dose pill for that. Very peaceful & sweet... I got her to eat more ice cream this morning too. She's been sharing stories, memories, jokes & tidbits with everyone, during her awake times. She's a night-owl, so its kind of wrecking havoc on her normal cycle.
Washington is famous for rain...
Getting Molly & the pit introduced was difficult. They had to go get a muzzle, because he wanted to kill her at first. Now he's fascinated by her & tries to shadow her... although keeping up with her agility has completely left him baffled... on the clear open grass he can keep up, but not when she starts dodging through the brush. She at first was running backwards while he ran forward... amazed everyone... Its funny to see her hold her own with him... he wants to chew on her neck, etc... she gives it right back, talking all the time. She's definitely not a wimp.
I'm going to go shopping in a bit. So fun to have the big stores so close!

Well, today was low-key. Did lots of laundry, some pre-cooking for myself... made mayonnaise from memory & it turned out! The sun came out & cheered everything up.
Tomorrow I hope to go shopping for some new jeans.
DS is going home tomorrow.
MIL is sleeping more, seems more uncomfortable, but totally pleasant & full of memories & stories when she wakes. I spent some good time with her today.
I have to make sure Molly's not left alone with her, she jumped up on her bed, to comfort her when MIL talked in her sleep... Molly's much too heavy for MIL to be able to push her off.
Bicycle is an easy way to get my exercise... that & shopping ... I can sit on that thing & pedal during conversations... pretty handy!

Thanks for letting us know how things are going . Hope she is feeling more comfortable today. She sounds like an awesome grace filled woman !

Molly is having fun !! She's not scared of anything is she ?

Nice that you still get to exercise while there, is anyone else there into fitness ? I guess the weather is still rainy ~ i've never been there but they sure are famous for it

Take care and hope you find the perfect pair of jeans ! Woohoo !

Oh, Deb. That was so sweet that Molly wants to comfort MIL. Too bad she can't stay up there on the bed with her. If I were in my final days, I'd want closeness from a fur baby. Maybe a cat would be more appropriate than a young dog full of exuberance, though. God bless your MIL and may you remember many of the stories and things that she's sharing with all of you.

Enjoy your shopping and the closeness of the stores. WTG on making the mayo from memory! That will keep your brain strong, for sure. Have a blessed day, Deb. May your MIL have peace and as little discomfort as possible.

Yep, her chihuahua is a much better size & stays on the bed with her the whole day... Molly wants to play with it & that's a disaster. Since she jumps up there if MIL talks in sleep, I just can't leave her in there to sleep, though everyone seems to do that.

Thanks, MIL is certainly at peace & very little discomfort.

Cool that you got in the paper. Nice to have those memories for your scratch-book.

Oh, that's great about her little dog. A much better fit! Yeah, it was funny about the local paper and the article. I'm really glad I was there for the open house. We had so few people show up, though. Maybe through word of mouth, more will come and express an interest.

I'm glad to hear your MIL is comfortable and that all of you are together and celebrating her life. You can't ask for a better send-off than that.

Glad you enjoyed it. Its so cool to be able to watch & send video's free online! I'll try to do some more... Molly is doing her best to make everyone smile & feel loved, (that's her job).
MIL is experiencing more discomfort. They figure its the tumor, she just thinks its that she can't get in the right position. More drugs... more sleep. But pretty clear & cheery this morning.
