Finally getting back to the journal. What a day!!! Mom called and said she isn't going to take her meds any more. She thinks the shortness of breath she is having is due to one or more of them and that only her vitamins & herbs will help. For crying out loud - the woman has CHF, is 92 years old and many other health problems that could account for shortness of breath. I cannot get through to her!!! I suggested that she go to a facility that will help regulate her medications and, maybe then she will get some strength and energy after the figure out "which one" is causing the problem. If it holds out, she has agreed. But we all expect her to change her mind. I simply don't know what to do anymore. If she doesn't take her pills, it is a certain death sentence. If she is truly alergic to one of them, that is a death sentence too. The only calm I have is that she has taken all of these medications for well over 2 years without alergic reactions. Please God, help us!We have all this and 2 family members preparing for deployment over the next 4-5 months. I think I'm going crazy about now. Anyone out there want to change lives with me???
