I'm not going to go into great detail on this (for both legal and personal reasons), but last week I was out visiting my mother along with my sister, as well as dealing with some official steps to get her under legal protection.
It went well on all counts, though some of it was also sad. My mother is a joy to be around... and yet, I'm not sure if she ever knew who it was she was with. My sister is a lot of fun - and hopefully someday we can just spend time together FOR fun. The legal parts worked as they needed to, heartbreaking as it continues to be that the need is there.
So we are a couple steps forward with an unknown number still to go.
