Hi all,

Just a quick post. Computers are shutting down here at the library.

Mom is getting worse. She can't swallow well...not even water.  She is having trouble remembering things more. And she is wanting me to tell everyone goodbye :( She may not make it to the end of the month.

Need your prayers....sorry no time to say more.

God bless. Thank you for your comments and prayers.

Hi everyone,

Well....I am not sure what to say here. I am so frustrated and tired that I can't see straight.  

For several days now I have been with mom at the nursing home from 8 to 12 hours at a time. :(  She is so upset.  And when I need to leave at night she cries cause she is afraid to be alone.  What do I do?  How do I help her?

I don't know what is wrong in her brain that makes her have the anxiety like this.  I don't understand why she can't just get mad at it all instead. :(  Do any of you know what is going on in the brain or NOT going on in the brain that is causing the anxiety? And her inability to get past it and carry on?

She doesn't want to take meds.  She just barely agreed to anti parkinson's meds a few months ago.  That was a big leap for her.

She is exhausted too I am sure from a bladder problem that makes her have to go to the bathroom every two hours all day and night. So she can not get a good sleep. There isn't anything to be done about that short of  surgery. Plus she hates the nursing home that she is in. :(

I don't know how to help.  And I can't stay there 24/7.  She needs a nurse to be with her all night or something so she won't be afraid. I don't know if that can work where she is. :(

Please pray for us.

I'm sorry this is an unhappy post. Have a great day and week anyway.  Take care.
