Did I mention that my aunt is returning?

My aunt, 92, is returning to visit her baby sister. This is a tremendous and very generous gesture and I, honestly, really appreciate it. I am pleased and proud that she is able to travel and fly and care for my mother at this stage in my mother's life.

Interestingly, I was not consulted about his visit. Alice, my mother's nurse, was not consulted either. The VNS and the Hospice Program that is overseeing my mother's care was not consulted either. My aunt's visit was ANNOUNCED to us. Once it was 'announced,' Alice requested that it begin on Sunday, 9/14, rather than late Saturday, 9/13.

I believe that request was honored, but I actually do not know. I was out of town today and was not able to call, chat, text and otherwise CHECK IN.

I think my aunt is staying 12 days, but I'm not sure. We'll see. 

I'm sure I'll hear plenty of feedback about what is working and what is not. I'm sure I'll hear many suggestions about what we could all be doing better. 

I'll let you know. I'll keep you posted.
