I know everyone expects my next post to be about my mother in law actually dying but she is proving to be one tough patient! Today marks 20 days with no real food other then a bite or 2 of some pizza topping 9 days ago! Gandhi went 21 days without food and only some water and survived but at her age and in her already weakened state it seems to go against what one would consider normal. I'm reminded of that scene in The Search For The Holy Grail where the man is picking up the dead during the plague and the one guy keeps saying, "I'm not dead yet!"

It's also quite amazing that she has moments of lucidness and is alert and can talk to a grandchild or her son on the phone. Granted the conversations are getting shorter.

As I had mentioned earlier my mother in law has so much stuff around her apartment, she has always had a problem with letting go of things. My wife figures she just doesn't want to go without all her stuff.

I'm headed over there in a bit, my wife texted me that mom is sleeping but I know I need to take her dog out and then change mom. My wife is not able to do it, it takes more upper body strength then she has. Thankfully without food intake the diapers are mostly just wet. My wife has her laptop and iPad but other than that it's just cable TV which we don't have anymore at home. I've watched it a bit and it only makes me happier that we don't have it anymore. Nothing but reruns and commercials and second rate shows in my opinion.

Oh well, I'll keep you all posted. Here is a picture of her sleeping with her little dog beside her.
