Mom's not feeling too well today -- in fact, she's been in constant pain since last night. She doesn't like the pain meds, because they make her so sleepy, but it seems as though she doesn't have much choice about it today. The pain has been with her since the middle of last night, and when I spoke to her this afternoon, she'd had a couple of doses of pain med and was thinking about the next one in an hour or so. That's a sharp change from yesterday, when she was pain-free.
Tim and I had planned to go camping one last time in early October, but I think we might change our plans and go this weekend instead.
Mom said today, "I think this thing will go quickly when it happens." In other words, she won't be lingering.
And I'd better think about packing.
