I am overwhelmed from all the comments, messages, emails and thoughtful acts of reaching out.
Thank you, it means the world.
Mom is doing okay. We are taking it day by day. She's had cognitive testing, which did not go too well...the hour long wait in a windowless exam room did not help. I found her a nice Medic Alert bracelet and had it engraved with her name, address and my Dad's cell number. (Good idea Dad!)
My Dad discovered some medication issues that have been corrected and has booked appointments with specialists. My brother has been a tremendous help, it warms my heart to think of them spending so much time together, and I know she likes it too.
We have had a few visits and she seems pretty good. She, along with my Dad, came downtown for my birthday and to visit me at work, she seemed happy and almost like her old self. We speak almost daily on the phone, as I have been working on my genealogy lately and she's excited to learn what I've discovered. She's better when she has stimulation and not alone. This stupid endless winter weather does not help, but it will not last forever. My Dad is doing everything he can for his love and I can't imagine what he must be going through.
So, we carry on as best we can and your kindness has made a little bit easier.
