WHAT IS GOING ON IN MY WORLD RIGHT NOW
Scottyâs mom has been on a rapid decline. She has been passing âcoffee groundâ emesis, which is a sign of GI bleeding. She has all but stopped eating now and Hospice care has taken over in the nursery home she is in in Illinois. She is now getting morphine every four hours and sleeps most of what is left of her time. It is so sad to watch, and even sadder to see my FiancÃ© and his family try to deal with what is happening. We all know the end is near. ð
Heading back to St. Louis / Illinois to transfer and visit with Scottyâs mom in the Hospice Care Facility. Please bear with me if I owe you a swap - I am taking all current and nearly due swaps with me and will be mailing them from there. This is a very trying time for us. Thank you â¥ï¸ Jill
So more bad news on my future mother-in-law, after her procedure they found out that basically cancer is everywhere in her abdomen and her intestines are no longer working at all. She can not get any nutrition from her stomach. Nothing moves. So no matter how much she may eat, she isnât getting the nutrition from the food and she is actually just withering away and dying of malnutrition. She is already down to 97 pounds. The doctors say there is nothing more they can do. She has opted to leave the hospital and all other treatments and go home. We are now trying to find hospice care for her.
Back home. Thankfully, at this time, my fiancÃ©âs mother is stable now, but still remains in Hospital in St. Louis. Unfortunately, he must get back to work tomorrow since he has been off with his back for over a week, and then away with his motherâs illness. So, we will leave his two siblings to watch over her and keep us posted while we return to Louisville...and we will be going back to St. Louis again soon. Thank you for being patient with me with swaps if I owe you one! â¥ï¸ Hugs, Jill
My Fiance's mother is in Hospital in St. Louis. She is 83 and this is likely end of life. So we traveled by car from Louisville, KY to St. Louis, MO to be with her as much as we can be right now as she goes through this. The doctors say she COULD recover...but, we honestly feel like she doesn't want to and each day she slips a little more away.
This has been a very trying time emotionally and physically for us all, especially since Scotty (my fiance) is injured with a herniated disc and walking and driving are very painful for him.
Please be patient if I owe you a swap...I brought some of my swapbot goodies with me...but, it is challenging to try to make and mail things from the road,/hotel/hospital. Thank you for your understanding. Love, Jill
Hi! My name is Jill... I am a Wanna be World Traveler...baby-stepping across the globe!
When I am not traveling ...my fiancÃ© and I live in a sweet 1938 Cape Cod in the heart of Louisville, Kentucky, that we have affectionately named, âOrpington Cottageâ. It has a warm rustic European farm feel.
We grow our own herbs and vegetables, compost, try to reduce our footprint, reuse, recycle, and enjoy our own farm-fresh eggs with our backyard laying hens (we have 2 Buff Orpingtons and 3 Lavender Orpingtons!). Not only do they lay the best tasting eggs on earth...but they are also the sweetest lap hens you could ever wish for!
MY AMBERLEIGH LIFE:
On Swapbot, in a group called âAt Hope With The Georgettesâ, I represent a Regency/Georgian Era Character named: Priscilla Anne Ackley and husband her, Elmer James Ackley, owners and proprietors of Ackley Dairy Farm supplying eggs and milk to the village and surrounding area. We keep a special journal for our swaps pertaining to this period. You can find more information about this group in the above Blog Link near the top of this page.
