Hi deb, I had to smile at the walker story. In our family I have the largest storage room available in our basement. The list is getting VERY long.
2 bedside potties.......One was Grams, never used. One was Moms used a little
2 walkers..............One Grams. One was Moms.
3 canes........of various sizes and shapes
1 large lift chair..................Grams. Expensive one. We got Mom a smaller one to fit in her small living room.
We are going to donate some of these things but we never know right now if we may need these things as Mom is getting weaker. You know a pottie for each of us to take care of her for short periods.
My son ask me if we were planning on starting our own "assisted living" facility??
I guess we'll keep the chair. Never know when I may need the stupid thing with these bad knees of mine. They are better. Thank God. Just planning ahead.
Not much to say about Mom. Heartache, I guess can best describe what is happening with my sisters and myself right now. She just doesn't know anything. I want to run away really. Take Mom and hide. Doesn't make much sense does it?
The stomach flu was going around Moms AL facility. Weeeeell guess who got it??? Me of course. OMG!!!!!! 4 days of misery. Fever, chills and you can guess the rest.
We have kept Mom in her room. So far so good. One of us has to be there everyday. She can't take care of anything for herself. I 'm serious................NOTHING.
My sisters took over everything while I've been ill. Mom is so sweet and clueless. Just don't try to give her a shower. LOL
Love to all
