My mother had a resurgence today, perhaps owing to my father's birthday. Or more likely because she's been sleeping better with the help of Haldol, a new prescription the hospice nurses have put her on. She is not talking much, but she managed to sing my "Happy Birthday" to my father.
My wife made a cake for my father and my mom had a couple of bites and a sip of champagne. Later when she was standing in the kitchen and a Bob Marley song came on, she reached for my father and danced with him. My parents have been married fifty years and its they love eachother as much now as they when they first met.
The hospice is now providing round-the-clock nurses, which has been helpful. The doctor says my mother has been extraordinarily resilient. I don't know where she gets her strength from.
