    Have you ever thought about designing a calendar/planner? I love the way you organize your agendas and I would certainly buy one that came straight from your brilliant brain! (And tell all my friends to buy one too!)

    My mom also died from sepsis. Hers was caused by a UTI that had gone unnoticed by her, probably because she was on some pain meds to help deal with debilitating arthritis. It’s also not uncommon for people in their 80s like she was to not notice an UTI like you or I would. I had been at her house to do her grocery shopping a few days before and she looked normal. On Christmas day when she walked in, it looked like she had aged 20 years in those few days. We ended up having to call the ambulance and spent much of Christmas and the next few days in the hospital. When she didn;t respond to antibiotics, she made the decision to go home with hospice. She was gone 24 hours after returning home.
    Miss her to this day. She is still the person I want to tell first when something good happens with her grandkids. Her grandson (my son) made the decision at teh ago fo 30 to go back and get his teaching degree. She had been encouraging him to do that, so she would have been so happy. He’ll be done in May. I think she and my dad would have been ok that he used the money he inherited from them to do this. It would have made both of them happy.
