Prayers for your Mom and your family from south Jersey.
I've been through this with both of my parents. It's never easy, but being there for her now will be a source of comfort for you in the future, knowing you're doing all you can for her when she needs you the most.

Thanks guys. My daughter's wedding was last night, Mom did not attend, and it was hard for us, especially at the Church Ceremony, but we did manage to make my daughter's special very special, and everyone had a great time. My sister video taped a lot of footage to share with Granny today, and we sent several pics. as well to share. We have all decided to live one day at a time, and enjoy all that we can with my daughter's & sister's birthdays coming up in a few weeks, etc. My mom was glad she did not pass on before the wedding, and now her goal is her own birthday in early December. Any hunting time I can get this fall will be greatly enjoyed, and appreciated whether I punch a tag, or not.
Also, my Son In Law and his whole family are a great people, and we could not be happier for the newly weds! :D

Stephen is not a vegetarian, but also not a hunter. I promised my daughter that I would teach him to shoot guns, and crossbows, etc. but not push hunting on him unless he asks to go. His sister's husband hunts, and we are on friendly terms, he has a son that is only 8 that he is teaching to hunt, so many good days ahead in that regard.

Mom not doing any better. She does have her mental capacity working just fine. She asked me what kind of car I bought for Sandy, and I said we didn't decide or shop. Mom said, Dan you promised her a new car, go shopping.
I bought Sandy a new car. Mom was overwhelmed!

Thanks Vic, she is doing OK, but now won't eat hardly at all. We have to make her get out of bed. I know she wants to make it past my daughter's birthday on the 14th, then my sister's on the 18th, after that is her's on December 2nd. She is setting short term mile stones, but at least we have that.

Thanks folks. Mom is back in the hospital, it's the 4th time in about a month. We are very hopeful, but realistic as well.

Thanks All! Mom turned 77 yesterday and had a swallowing test performed today. It went OK, and allows her to be on a solid foods diet for another two weeks. Our family gathered up today to do some traditional Holiday shopping / cooking, and gift exchanges for the far reaching folks, and Military Members. We all remember my Mother hosting the Christmas gatherings, and had a great time talking about the great memories.
This year has been rough with all the goings on, but still we are grateful.

Happy Holidays All!
