We have tenative plans to meet Mom and Uncle M and Grandma in Salina for a Mother's Day lunch. After talking to Mom last night, I don't know. She's not sure Grandma will be up to even that short trip.

From what Mom and Sis say, Grandma is sleeping most of the time now. There are times when the nurses can't wake her up; Mom and Sis have had occasions when they couldn't either. Sis says that Grandma was doing this last fall, before that long hospital stay, when they were worried about her heart. (Among all the other worries, those months.)

They're not talking about any one thing being wrong right now, but it is worrying. The nursing home got her moved into a wheelchair about a month ago. But even with that assist, she's withdrawing from the social life there, not playing cards anymore, not doing the craft groups and movie nights and all the things they host to keep the residents alert.


The plan is now that Sis and I wait to hear from Mom on Sunday morning. If she says that Grandma isn't up to the trip, I'll leave the kiddos with By and drive out to spend a couple hours with Grandma.
