Taking Mom to Dr tomorrow

My mom finally made a doctor appointment for her stomach. I wrote her Dr and asked him to check for confusion and memory loss and possible underlying cause. I'm worried that a) Mom might manage to act normal, b) doctor will throw me under the bus, as in "Q Why do you think your mom has mental health issues?", c) she won't sign the HIPPA form (I plan to get this done before we go back to see doctor), or d) doctor will tell her she has a problem and she will pitch a fit. Please pray for me friends.

Re: Taking Mom to Dr tomorrow

You have my prayers as well Q. I remember those days OH SO WELL!!! I do hope the doctor does the right thing, you get the HIPPA form signed, and have some success in finding out what is going on with your Mom.

Be sure to let us know the outcome.....

Love, deb
