Your Mom obviously knows you love her.
With a bit of hard work she will be home again soon.
Take care and remember she is where she needs to be for the health situaion she is in.

Dearest Betty - your mother knows you are doing the right thing. She is were she can be cared for. You will still be there for her as you wanted to me, overseeing and making sure she is properly cared for. So many of those poor folks have no one that can/will do that for them. So, from this aspect, your mother is ahead of the game - she had the care she needs and the 100% supporting care of her wonderful daughter. Don't despair. Love you. Esther

Betty- Even though it was the hard thing, you did the right thing for your Mom and your family. And your Mom is so lucky to have you nearby- it will be ok.

Betty your mom knows it is best for her for a while. It's tough and sometimes it is the only choice. My dad had to do the same thing with my grandmother years ago as she needed 24 hour care. He hated doing it, felt like he was abandoning her but it really was the best thing for her. What are the other patients like in there? She might be able to make some friends while she is there? Normally these places run some activities/music and such? I remember visiting homes when I was at high school, as part of one of our subjects. Actually it was a nun who took us there to visit every week and we would put on performances and sing and make things for the patients. They really loved it and so did we xo

Oh, Betty, I'm so sorry you are so sad about placing your mother in the care home. You know there may just be a special person there who will give your mother the care she needs right now. I'm thankful there is a place where she will be cared for and you can rest in that knowledge. hugs. Heidi

Betty, I saw your comment to Corey and thought I'd just stop by to tell you I'm so sorry to hear about your sweet mom. It's so hard when circumstances change and more intense health care is required for our parents and elderly loved ones. I pray she will be well cared for and able to come home again soon.
Thinking of you - stay strong.

Heather - Pretty Petals

Betty , I am so sorry to hear that your Mom isn't well...it is so obvious that you love and care for your Mom so much. So many times you see people that just leave their loved ones there and never come back. That will obviously NEVER happen with your sweet Mom. Sending big hugs your way and praying that she will be able to come home to you soon. xoxoxo Heather

Dear Betty, we are so sorry Betty. We share your tears here and wish we could give you a huge hug, aww what the heck here is one (((((hug)))))
We understand your situation, you and Christy and your family are in our thoughts and prayers and we pray your Mom will be home soon :) Don't be hard on your self Betty, your Mom will understand. Jenn and Jacqui xo

María Elena

Betty,you are doing for their rehabilitation and will be by the time it prolongs .A hug.

Carolyn

Oh Betty, am one more amidst those here, who is hearing your pain, and sending you a massive hug. I do know one thing . . . . you have spared your dear mom the agony of seeing your life come crashing down while trying to care for her at home. I suspect that could be more painful to her than her present location. She sounds like a delightful woman, and I also suspect that her wonderful attitudes and personality will help her where she is, in receiving the best possible care, bringing out the best in those caring for her. You and your mom will be in my thoughts and prayers in the coming weeks, as you take some much needed time to heal. Very big hugs.

Sarah

Oh (((((Betty))))). I hope she is home very soon.

Jerri

Everyone wants the best for their parents and sometimes a nursing facility is the only answer. She knows you love her no matter what.

mom2fur

Oh, no, you surely have NOT let her down! You are letting others who are experts watch her for just a while. Those sad faces you saw years ago were probably moms and dads who sat for days on end, even weeks on end, forgotten. I can see there is NO way your mom will be forgotten! I hope she heals quickly and comes home soon.

Amy Wagner

Betty,
Your Mom knows how much you love her, remember that!! I will pray hard.

Hi Betty,
Esther told me about your mother and I had to come over here to visit you. I have been a bad blogger as of late with not visiting everyone as often as I should. I am so sorry to hear about your mother. I do understand what you are going through. My Nanny had to be put in a home after she fell and broke her hip. It was only to be temp, but she ended up digressing. So very sad. But honey, you have to do what is right for your mother and if you know that you cannot provide the care for her on your own, then there are those who are trained to do so. Give it to God and he will see to it that your mother gets better and will be home and on her own soon. Don't beat yourself up over it...we did that, and you know, in the end we realized that Nanny actually liked it there and enjoyed being around people she would never had met while being cooped up at home.

love,
Becky

Oh, Betty- I'm so sorry you had to go down that road, but you know she is going to get the best care & give you a chance to rest. You did not let her down- you are showing her love & commitment, getting her the help you are unable to give yourself. I'll be praying & trusting that there will be a quick recovery.

cindy

wow, i'm so sorry you had to so that. i know what you mean, i too working in one when i was a teen, and i too said i would never put my mom in one. but having seen what others have had to do to help their parents, it is sometimes necessary. i wish your mom a speedy recovery.
