Mike's mom has fallen yet again, getting out of bed without assistance only this time she has suffered a stroke. She is now paralyzed on her right side, though they do not know if this is permanent or temporary. For as much as she wants to die, and prays for it daily, I wonder how much more abuse her body can take? For a 95 year old woman, she is certainly resilient, though I suspect what keeps her going is her unending anger at everyone in her path. I almost hope at times to go and see her and find someone who is apathetic and giving up on life as she knows it. I realize that makes me seem like a harsh individual but to watch her daily deteriorate into an angry lump of humanity is hard enough for me, I can't imagine what is doing for Mike. We are told she can barely communicate and we went over there but were sent home.
