Day 19

Reason #1,266,089 I need my Mom.

I don't have a green thumb.

So many people have brought Mom flowers. Bouquets of roses, carnations, lilies, birds of paradise.

I tried my best to water and care for them.

But I'm not like Mom.

I always dropped off dying house plants and she'd miraculously nurse them to life.

The picture you see is after I threw out all the dead flowers.

I need Mom.

Reason #3,653,841 I hate hospice: we've had 7 different "neighbors" in 3 rooms. Two went home. Two still are patients. You can guess what sadly happened to the other three.
