On this episode, Priscilla talks to Nikki about the last year of her life that she has spent taking care of her aging mother in her 90s. She shares how she wasn't necessarily close to her mother during her teenage years and her 20s, but that later in life she was able to have a better adult relationship with her, leading to the tough moment when she realized her mother was no longer able to take care of herself. Priscilla explains how she made the decision to have her mother stay with her in her home instead of placing her in assisted care, and she talks in depth about the drastic changes this created in her life. With her mother not wanting to be a burden, Priscilla expended extra energy trying to hide from her how taxing the situation actually was. She also shares an incredibly powerful moment she got to have with her mother as she passed, and how years of facing and dealing with death prepared her for that moment.
