Thanksgiving

One of the main stories in the December Reader's Digest is nursing home negligence: Deadly Neglect: The Shocking Truth about What's Going On in America's Nursing Homes. How much better to have my mother close by and not have to worry about malnutrition or dehydration or infected bedsores!

“Today is Thanksgiving,” I tell Bea this morning. “What are you thankful for?”

Her mouth curves down in a proud smile: “You!”

As for me, I am thankful for our hospice health aide. Lisa’s compassion brightens Bea’s final days.
