Today our high was 71. Tonight our low will be 26. That's a big temperature spread for Little Rock. It was a gorgeous day outside today. The sun was shining although the wind was blowing. We had gusts in the 30 plus MPH range. It was still pretty though.

Steffie and I went to a care team meeting at the nursing home today regarding Steph's mom. Her health continues to decline. They had to start her on pureed food today in an effort to get her to eat. She did eat better today than she has been eating. The nursing home gives her FIVE high calorie shakes a day in an effort to get/keep her weight up. She has lost another three pounds in the past week. Steph is going to have to make a decision about putting her mom on palliative care versus rehabilitation. Her mom just is not able to cooperate with the rehabilitative process any longer. This has been a rapid decline in her condition. This change has happened in about six weeks. According to the care team she is in end stage dementia.  This is going to be a difficult time for Stephanie. I hope that I can always be as supportive and patient as she needs me to be.

This is all I have to report from SageMoon Cottage tonight.

Ciao!
