Life after Work

Visiting Auntie

We finally made it to my mother-in-law’s house today to spend a little time with Aunt Eleanor, John’s great-aunt on his mother’s family’s side. She continues to fade away ever so slowly. She only gets out of bed for about an hour per day now. Not bad for a 97-year-old one might say, but everything is just a chore for her now, even eating. I thought her hands were frail and bony years ago – they are even tinier now.

Mentally she is mostly there and she still listens to the radio on headphones, but communicating was difficult since she wasn’t wearing her hearing aids. I left her after 30-40 minutes┬áso she could nap a little bit.
