need your support and prayers

  1. My mom has fallen 4 x in the last week. Can't stand by herself. Some confusion. I have flown cross country to put her in nursing home against her will because my brother can't take care of her anymore.
    No money. No help. She won't come home and live with me.
    I am so sad. Pray that today is an easy transition for her.
    I don't care about me. I'll be okay

    I'm so sorry for what you are going through. It's hard to be the "bad guy" even when you know in your heart you are doing the right thing. You certainly have a community with allnurses that understands what you are going through and we are all ready to support you.

    Good luck, and I will keep you in my thoughts.

    may you be at peace, with your mother, yourself, and your decisions. May your mother be at peace, and know just how much you love her and care about her well-being. My prayers are with you.

    How blessed your mother is to have a wonderful, caring daughter like yourself! I see alot of familes work against each other in situations like this but this is the time to come together and do what is right for your mother....I will say a prayer for your family....
