Day 34

What does someone mean when they say a person is "resting comfortably?"

Mom has a brain tumor that is killing her. I don't think she's comfortable.

Mom has slept all day. The only exceptions were when the nurses needed to clean her up and when she woke to cough.

Cough. Phlegmy and "wet" cough.

Her cough was so forceful Mom woke and actually said, "I'm still alive," before going back to sleep.

When Mom does open her eyes, only the right one obeys. She seems to have no control of her left side.

I feel Mom sometimes wants to say something when she is awake. But her brain won't let her. How can such an intelligent being be betrayed this way?
