You were very kind to do as much as you did for her. We never really know the dynamics involved in somebody else’s family. I visit a woman with ALS who is paralyzed and in a nursing home. Her husband just died and she says her daughter never visits her. Yet one day a Christmas tree was in the room and when I asked her who brought it she replied that her daughter did, but that she didn’t stay to visit. Yet her daughter told someone else she was very much on top of her mother’s care. So I don’t know what the real story is. All I can focus on is how I can reach out to her.
