Mom called this morning, and she sounded strained. I had asked her last week to tell me if she started to think I should come to visit before Labor Day. She told me this morning I should come whenever I can.
Dad’s not eating — at all — and he’s getting weaker (no surprise, since he’s not eating) and sicker. Mom seems concerned that he might not make it until Labor Day.
So I’ve sent my email to my coworkers and management, turned on my out of office message, and am beginning to pack. We’ll leave tomorrow morning.
I’ll post updates as I start to get a feel for how things are.
