Waiting for the Phoenix

My dear mother went to Walmart on Friday.
On Saturday she fell and broke her neck.
On Sunday she slept all day.
On Monday she celebrated her 93rd birthday, but her mind was a bit foggy.
On Tuesday she was able to go to the lunch room.
On Wednesday she is doing bubble breathing, is aspirating, cannot swallow.  She cannot eat and she cannot drink.  She struggles to mumble and coughs and coughs.  All from a broken neck.

Which train will she take this time?

We are waiting for the Phoenix.

I'm so sorry. I hope your friends are rallying around in support. I hope your Phoenix rises.

I too am saddened to read this. Having cared for my aging parents I fully understand what you must be feeling. Prayers and hugs for you.
