Edna and Kaitlyn at Kaitlyn's wedding shower, May, 2008
Two amazing and beautiful women in my life - my mother, Edna, and my oldest daughter, Kaitlyn. My mother is leaving this world, and the day after tomorrow is Kaitlyn's birthday.
It's 3:45 am, and I've been awake for over an hour. I'm on my way to RI this morning. My mom has stopped eating and drinking, and is non-responsive. She's turning inward. She'll be going soon. My siblings and I are driving and flying in to all be by her side. Wednesday Kaitlyn will be 32, the age that my mom was when she had me.
