My mother is 87 years old. She lives in Ste. Anne, Manitoba, 40 kms east of Winnipeg. I live in Montreal and so I do not see her often. Thankfully, I have 4 siblings who live near her. I have another sibling who lives in Québec.
My mother is not well. She is truly getting old. At the end of June, I received an email from my sister and another from one of my brothers expressing their concern for my mother.
Although her health has never been great (she has suffered from bi-polar most of her life, diabetes for the last few decades, heart weakness the last 10-15 years, gradual hearing loss for probably 20 years), it has taken a turn for the worst.
