Help an elderly friend.

Wednesday, December 24, 2014

Recently I've been driving a very sweet & beautiful lady to & from the nursing home so that we can visit our husbands.
Yesterday she asked me about blood tests & I realized that she meant taking what is meant to be a daily or even several times a day test with a diabetes glucose testing device. I offered & later went to her home & showed her how to use the device. But when we tested her blood it was 63 !!!!!! I was alarmed. She doesn't eat lunch. I strongly yet gently impressed upon her that she must eat 3 meals a day. I grabbed her jelly jar & told her to eat some now before she passed out. I was afraid of what would happen had I not arrived in time.

I told her that she has to take this test two hours after meals & log them into some kind of log book.
I told her that I was not trying to frighten her but that she must take care of herself. Despite having daughters she lives alone. I'm " adopting " her since I'm going to see her so often. emoticon
I told her "the only thing I want to read about her in the daily news that she's turned 100 years old". Why not her mother made 104 !!! emoticon emoticon

    You are a good friend! Diabetes can be pretty overwhelming for older adults, especially when they live alone. God bless you. You might want to reach out to her family and ask them to check in on her more often too. I would feel awful if my mother suffered medical complications and I wasn't aware of the problem.
