Your comments and emails on my last post were so greatly appreciated. You have no idea how much it means to me. It has been a frustrating time the past few weeks, and sometimes I wonder how I managed to deal with things before I started this crazy blog.
I'm going to give you a little update without alot of details. I try to be cautious of how much I share with you about Mom because she doesn't have the capacity to consent. It's one thing for me to blab about all my stuff but out of respect for my mother, I do keep a lot of the details surrounding her condition and activities to myself. I guess because I would hope that if I ever got in that condition I wouldn't want all my daily indignities splashed out to the world.
However, this is what I will share. We spent most of the morning at the hospital. We have now confirmed an issue that has the potential to be not good. However (yes there is always a but) there really isn't anything we can do to fix it. Because of her advanced Alzheimers and a few other things, the traditional treatments and remedies that would work on most people are not an option for us. She would either be non-compliant or some things would create other issues that make it un-manageable.
I am not generally a person that easily accepts there is nothing I can do. I did get a little fiesty at the hospital but the doctor took the time to sit down with me and we went through ALL the options and the pros and mostly cons of each. Eventually I had to accept that he was right.
So I guess we just have to deal with things as they are for now. My grandmother always used to say that you have to play the hand with the cards you are dealt. So I guess that is what we will do. It SUCKS but it is what it is.
I had to snap this picture tonight after supper. The sky was so pretty and soothing, it made me feel a bit better.
