allie, i am taking it day by day. my mom is drinking again. surprise surprise.... her friends think they are helping her her by getting it for her. helping her deal with her grief,they say....
im just waiting on her to go. it will be a whole lot sooner than her friends think. they dont see the weight loss, bruises everywhere, swollen feet, memory loss,and everything else associated with this horrible disease.. they gave my stepdad a time limit of 6 mths or less, if his health stays the way it is now,and they didnt get all the cancer but she will surprise me if she makes it that long. we take her to see him,havent sent him home yet, and sometimes i see regret in her eyes,or maybe thats just wishful thinking on my part. she walks with a gait,if that makes sense, and she knows all of us, but when it comes to remembering even the simplest thing she cant do it.. kidney dr called and told her she missed an appt, i didnt know about, and she says shes not going back..... shes beyond help anyway.... im not really sure if this is coming from liver or kidney problems but now her vision is going.. gets swimmy-headed a lot.. complains of a headache a lot... and so life goes on.
Aliie- how are you? are you taking time for yourself? how is your mom?
