Hmmmm, mother starts this tomorrow. We'll see. The doctor is also going to get up a visit from the home nurse thingy to come here and evaluate what we need. My sister is good for one thing - she's a barracuda, so I sicked her on the doctor. Unfortunately, she's in a nursing home and can't go with me to appointments (or help with mother). After a weekend of crying fits (mine), my sister finally decided that I'd had enough. (Previously remarks were along the line of - well she took the job and this is part of it - and we wonder why I don't talk to her a lot.) My sister-in-law, Bebo, will be going with me to mom's next appointment in December - since I'm not sure I can get her there by myself. Mom is now refusing to get out of bed and has screaming fits. (of course, she says she could get some rest if "that" woman would quit screaming)
Mom funny: To me - "You sound like you don't look too well." I'll try to sound better from now on.
My back is killing me from moving her around that bed and constantly bending. Yes, we have the sheet trick going, but it's still a lot of tugging and pulling.
