My mom, who was a great mom, was very delusional her last year, and I was her daily companion. I was also the focus of her delusions, it seemed. It was very difficult to be trying my best to care for her as she had always cared for me while she felt I was being hurtful and cruel in ways she raised me not to be. She deserved better and, really, so did I. It has taken this surgery for me to see past those months of hell we lived through and remember the kind care she always had for me. And, remembering that care, I miss her dearly.
