8.45: I arrive at the hospital. She is a sleep. I want in the next room, which has been our “base” for the past week. 2 nurses come to help her bath. She seem so weak, nothing like yesterday morning.

After her bath, i enter the room and she seems to be reliefed. She tells me she feels much better now she is lying in a different position. And the nurse promissed to find another special matrass for her.

We talk a little. She still finds it odd that i can be so flexible with my work. I tell myself that i really appreciate this that it is made possible.

She starts to watch a soapserie on the tablet. After a while a nurse enters the room and starts to talk about possibilities to go home or to a hospital. We ask time to think about it. At 12 we will talk again. Hopefully my sister will be here also.

Mother seems to be upset. I ask her why. She tells me that she did not anticipate on this step. She feels uncomfortable because again she is confronted whit an unexpected surprise. She worries about how the bed will fit, whether there will be assistance, how the visitors will be managed and so fort. I assure her that i do have organizing skills but i doubt wether this reassures her. Now she is a sleep.

My sister calls. She has visited the company doctor and had called her executive at work. I can hear it in her voice that she has cried. She tells me that she will not work coming period. Now she is at the rental company. She will try tot get the rental contract of the house on 2 names. Otherwise she will have to move after my mother pass away.

In the afternoon my mother decides that she wants to get home and pass away in her own house. The moving will take place tomorrow before afternoon.
