My mother died early this morning.  Those who've been reading this journal for a while may remember that she's been and out of hospitals for the past couple of years with congestive heart failure and other problems, that she broke her hip at the beginning of July and that accelerated the decline.  My sister did miracles of care, and there were very good days over these past three months that she was able to enjoy, and in her own home.  Even at the end she wasn't in deep pain, but she'd become so frail that her skin tore easily, there was constant aching, it did hurt greatly when she needed to be moved onto her side or adjusted in bed, the other conditions were getting worse, and there was no hope of turning any of it around.  She went quietly in a sleep that had been increasing troubled lately, but last night wasn't.  She's fully at rest now, at peace.
