Update on Mom

Wednesday, July 02, 2014

They said last week Mom would get to come home this week but it isn't looking like it. They are still working on her meds. I am finally feeling some better from her attack on me. I go to the doctor tomorrow. I am sure that he will fuss about my weight and blood pressure.

    I'm glad they're determined to get her meds just right first.
That's good you're starting to feel better.
No fun about going to the doctor. Try to do some breathing exercises before they do the blood pressure.

Update on Mom

Friday, June 20, 2014

I called yesterday and they have added another medication trying to help with her moods. Some family members went to see her and she was no where near reality but she wasn't angry. At least that was better.

I am really sore from her hitting me last week. It hurts to move. Oh well this will too pass.

update on mom

Monday, June 16, 2014

Mom is at the hospital two hours away getting evaluated to see if her behavior is medication, Alzheimer's or something else. Currently we have no idea how long she will be there. They should be called me or my sister sometime today and we going from there. We saw her yesterday afternoon before coming home and she was doing better. She had eaten and bathed for them so that is a plus. But you could tell she was still really out of it.

As for me and how I am doing. I am numb. I don't know how I feel. Mom has been so angry at me, since she thinks I was poisoning her with her medications. I have been hit and cursed at. So I am just trying to get through today at work. I am still so very tired from this weekend. It just took so much out of us mentally, physically and emotionally.

    You have got to know that your mother doesn't know what she is doing. She would probably cringe if she knew how she was treating you and your family. It's JUST NOT her! Pray for your strength and those that care for her. I'm praying too!

    This is heartbreaking. Please remind yourself that you Mom is NOT angry with you -- not in any rational sense.

    I know it's hard to believe, but your mom is not angry with you. She is most likely confused and frustrated, both of which can appear as anger. If it seems like she is taking it out on you most, it might be because you are the one that is there most often. Caring for an aging parent can be a tremendous load to bear and when you add dementia or other cognitive issues to the mix it can be almost unbearable. Take time to take care of yourself and know this, in her lucid moments I am certain your mom is proud of you and the job you are doing taking care of her.

    Oh friend, I am so sorry to hear that you are going through such a hard time right now with your Mom. Same thing on this end with MIL, today she threw all the phones (wires, base & all) out of the house into the backyard because she doesn't use them anymore, which is not a true statement.

I hope that you receive good news when you hear from the hospital. I know it hurts that she is lashing out at you but best DH and I can figure is that the people that do the most for them are the people that get it the worst.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this trying and stressful time and I hope that all turns out ok.

fun on vacation but boy when i got home

Sunday, June 15, 2014

Cumberland falls was beautiful. It was really nice.

We got home on Wednesday evening. Thursday my aunt called, Mom was hitting and being ugly. So I went down. While my aunt and uncle took a walk, I was cooking lunch mom tried to get out of the house. But the door was locked (mom has been getting out and running off). She started yelling at me for not letting her out. I told her I couldn't let her out. So she started hitting me. She hit me on my neck and shoulder. I finally got her to sit down and stop. I have called her drs they changed her meds. But after she attacked me she decided she wasn't eating or drinking or taking her medication. So .... It is 1 am on Sunday morning. We are sitting in a psychological wing of a hospital that is two hours from home to admit mom to find out if it is her medication, Alzheimer's or mental issues.
