Life is full of tough decision making process -6

I have sounded too good for my trip to China and Japan so far in my past 5 posts. But, I did have some mission to take actions based on my conclusion. #1. was my mother who is 85 years old. #2. was my job.

Many of my friend already know that my mothers health has not been so well this year. For old people, it always starts from some kind of accident. In her case, she fell in riding bicycle late last year. Fortunately, she did not break any bone despite that she had bone problems. But she was getting less confident on daily lives and her activity range was getting less.

I was kind of sensing what my mother is up to, but she is so stubborn lady that she did not mention about it in past. My mother wanted me to be back to live with her. I have long sensed it but just avoided to talk about it with her for relatively long time.

Now that she feels so weak, she wanted to discuss about it with us when my wife was also visiting this year. She knows that my wife and I have gone through thick and thin to establish our living in US. It was not easy for both of us since we both had foreign nationalities.

My mother wanted to talk about it now in the way she hopes, desires, and feels like. It is good thing for all of us after all. But, I was stuck between rock and hard place because of this.

Hello Shaw,

These are tough decisions that you are having to make. It is hard to take care of your mother when you are so far away. Good luck to you on the decisions. You will make the best one that you can. Until we hear more from your next post.

Have a good day.

Hi Shaw .. a very difficult place to be in .. we've been incredibly lucky having my mother nearby and being cared for in a Nursing Centre. I'd hate to make the choice .. I do hope you had happy conversations with her - whatever the outcome.

All the very best - Hilary Melton-Butcher
