Cory's Mom

Margaret Brown, Cory's mom, after her successful hip repair procedure, took a turn for the worse and she has chosen to forgo any more treatment or seek any sort of rehabilitation. This was not unexpected--Margaret has known she had bladder cancer since February when she had a tumor removed.

She took a pass on chemotherapy and had spent the spring and summer living with us, spending a lot of time replanting our garden.

That her life was ending was not unexpected--it's that her hip injury wasn't anticipated.

Regardless, Margaret has made the decision to enter a hospice program in a skilled nursing facility.

Cory and I are determined to make her last days comfortable and as pain-free as possible.

I will tell you more when there is more to tell.

My condolences.

Although condolences aren't quite technically in order --yet. They are quite inevitable. Thanks, David.
