As many faithful readers will know, my mother-in-law left my house on Christmas Day and went directly to the hospital.
My parents and brother were also there that night. I had told them Henny hadn’t been feeling well lately, but they immediately were alarmed by her loss of weight and, more importantly, her loss of zeal.
Gradual decline is much more difficult to see, but that night they helped us all see clearly that we needed to act.
And so we acted.
Henny was discharged on New Year's Eve and I started the new year by bringing her a big pot of homemade chicken soup and her favourite gluten-free grain loaf (I will post that recipe soon!). With a grim diagnosis and more questions than answers, I wasn’t sure what other way I could nourish her.
