She is 69 today, her health(Brain Tumors) has gotten worse as of late. She has lost the use of her left arm and leg. We have to lift and move her when needed. So much has changed from when I first came to her home to help take care of her during February.

I will cherish every minute that we have had together. We must have watched dozens of Cowboy movies since I came to help. Most of them I would have never seen were it not for her.

It hurts so bad to see her life slowly drift away. I was not in that great of mental shape when I came to stay, so it's been emotional roller coaster for both of us. I'm so glad that I have been there for her.

Lately I stay for 4 days and my 73 year old Mom stays for 3, it's very tough on her to help...but she does. We also have hospice to come out and check on her. We want her home as long as possible. She's still Marge, her mind has not gotten bad. She told me the other day that she did not know what she would have done without me.

Her son got out of prison after serving 2 years. He was arrested again within a month. He was of no help. Stealing from her wallet, taking money out of her Bank account and selling her pain meds to buy meth. What kind of person can do this to his dying Mother. We now have to keep everything in a metal lock box.

He is getting out of jail today, my Mom and I wanted to leave him there. But I don't want to cause Marge not to see him before she goes away for good. She's always forgave her kids, even when they did not deserve it.

It makes me sick, the thought of him coming home. He's the most selfish, self centered person I have ever seen. I often wonder how much he really cares, other than having his Mom to bail him out of all his troubles.


Marge has had a lot of seizures lately. A couple were Grand Mall seizures, which can be very bad. They scare the hell out of me and I know they do her also.

If you get a chance, please Pray for her to have a peaceful departure from this world when it's her time. I'd appreciate it.


Thanks,
Kenny

Kenny, tell Aunt Marge Happy Birfday from Big Dave, then give her a big hug for me.

I feel ya, especially the part about that rotten son of hers. When Aunt Marge isn't looking, knock him upside the head and tell him THAT'S from Big Dave, also.

You ARE a good man, Kenny. God bless you, and God bless and keep Aunt Marge.

Kenny, I sure wish things were way different for your Aunt.

As big a loser as her son is, she is blessed to have you & your Mom more than making up the difference.

Hope Marge has a good day and gets to watch a cowboy movie or two today.

Happy Birthday to your Aunt Marge.

You are a better son to her than the one she gave birth to. I'd watch him like a hawk while he's around.

Happy Birthday Marge!!!

You let her know that my/our prayers are with her all the time.

Tell her son the opposite for me.

Thats what we have to do. When he got out of prison, we all supported him and tried to be of some help.

He's very Bi-Polar and will not take meds. He gets on these "Everything is about me" moods and does everything for himself. Hell he was even in her room complaining about his back and knee's hurting. I thought she has complained less in the 6 months she has been sick as he has in one week.

It makes me sick to know he's returning.......

and yep..Marge and I will be watching westerns when I get down there today. I bought her two lovely bedtime gowns for her Birthday. Plus a card that makes me cry every time I read it.

Happy Birthday to Aunt Marge.





And yet another pat on the back to Kenny for all he's done.


Marge deserved a son as fine as you.
