Abby and I took an extra-long walk today because it’s Thursday and our weekend has begun!
And that means hiking. I’m excited about going up Mount Prevost tomorrow and thoroughly exploring the top. And then on Sunday going back up to Strathcona to play in the snow. And to work hard in the snow – it’s a grunt up Mount Elma – but oh, the rewards at the top.
Mom called today. Once again, her pains are the worst they have ever been. Every call for the past years – and I am now talking tens of dozens of calls (no exaggeration) have started with her telling me that the pain she is in is the worst ever.
And then she wonders why no one believes her.
It’s really very sad. And I do feel empathy. I listen. I try to explain that their isn’t anything anyone can do. I don’t think anyone or anything gets through. It is so sad to end a life like that.
