    I've got this hurdle to face too.  My mom's been slipping away for years. My dad's worst nightmare is coming true, mom's outlasted his savings. I'm in Washington and she's in Florida. Her shell is lying in a bed in the old living room.  She's got 24 hour care. She hasn't walked in 4 years.  Two years ago she though I was my brother (I don't have a brother) and my last two visits (she was completely out of it. Wanted to get dresses and go shopping with her mother and little sister (grandma died in '72 and little sister is in Utah).

    Be strong and keep the good memories close.
