So after venting today, and hubby coming home expecting me to go to the doctor's appmt and me exploding, a lot has happened. He took MIL to the doctor and I went to a decorating appmt at the funeral home. At 11:00 I called him and he had just gotten home with her. Her blood sugar was 172, way too high, her blood pressure too low. Nurse was very concerned and he had to go off and get some new meds, etc. So she is verging on diabetes which puts another wrinkle in the mix. This may have been going on for sometime, thus her feeling so bad on many days and sleeping all the time, dry mouth, excessive thirst. Constipation. At any rate, I have an appmt at 3:00 today and then going to guild tonight. She is not going to go to guild but stay home by herself and she should be all right. Later. Carol

    At 176, she has diabetes since anything over 126 is diabetes, but glad she is getting medical attention and will be under control. You certainly have a lot of stress to deal with. My son's gf's grandmother has diabetes and is 93 and she does well.

    You are doing such a good job. Sometimes you need to take a little time for your business and that just has to be. Curious. Was this a fasting blood sugar?

    What good care you are taking of MIL. Who knows with her blood sugar alright she may feel much better able to do for herself and you might feel much better about leaving her by herself. Who knows, she might feel more confident to spend time visiting independently?
    We can always hope!
    In the meantime you are doing great I just know you will find a way to get your alone time, you must not do without it!

    Carol I do so get where you are coming from. Let hubby know that he will have to help you. You have to take care of yourself to help with her. ((HUGS)) and prayers going up for you.
