I come from a smaller loose knit family. We aren’t very close when it comes to brothers, sisters, etc. A few years ago, mama had 2 heart attacks. It slowed her down but she was hanging in there. In May, mama had a double stroke and she is struggling. Hell, we all are! At first there were 3 of us involved with mama’s care. It’s down to my sister and I now. In the beginning, we had thought that mama would be able to go to assisted living. I just wasn’t comfortable with the places we found. After talking and a lot of thinking, my hubby and I decided that mama could moved in with us. This was huge cuz we travel for hubby’s work. This meant me coming off the road and hubby staying on his own. So it worked out and we bought a mobile home and planned to move mama in. After 2 days, mama decided she was doing well enough to get out of bed on her own! Yea sure! So she sprained both wrists and hit her head on the wall. Ugh...for god’s sake! She was in hospital for 3 days then to rehab. After 2 weeks she again decided she could get out of bed on her own! They found her on the floor at 3:30 in the morning. Back to hospital again....This time they found her hemoglobin and potassium very low. She also has an ongoing problem with UTIs. This is driving me crazy! We don’t know how much better mama will get. Right now she is so very confused and is also seeing things. We hope it’s the UTI and hemoglobin problems.
I also have health concerns with anxiety and I’m also grieving for the loss of 2 of my sons in less than 4 years. I’m struggling here and it’s not going to get much better any time soon.
Suggestions and advice is appreciated!
I haven't been on here for awhile. I have been working very hard. I could just use some support. My mom is an absolute nightmare right now. I'm very close to just suddenly walking away and severing all ties.It's a long story which I posted most of last year in another post.To be brief, she finally got into physical therapy. Tests came back normal as far as I know. She was doing so much better....
I collect dolls. A Barbie doll I ordered was delivered yesterday. Minus the shoes.They are often on the dolls feet. She was barefoot. No accessories around thePackage except a pocketbook. No wire or tape where shoes might have been attached.Then I noticed the lower half of the package was open. The top part was still sealed.Someone must have taken the shoes before the package was...
