It's great to hear from you!!
I do understand a bit about alzheimers, I worked in the Geriatric field and a couple of my patients had this...My own Grandma had either senile dementia, or alzheimers. I'm very sorry to hear that your Mom has this as well.
I have asthma - currently as I speak :) - and mild emphysema as I smoked for several years, though I did quit a few years back, along with something else they haven't put a name to yet -Therefore a diagnosis of COPD.
The combination of illnesses that your Mom has is hard to control, especially with the emotional aspect as you know. :) It seems that you have most of this under great supervision and I applaud you for all that you are doing to help her and your Dad!!
How old is Cait? My Britt is now 17 and she's had to deal with allergies since birth along with asthma as well. I sometimes think she handles it better than I do! Though she does get aggravated at times and she worries about Mom, too - just like you do, Lyn and just like I did. :)
Thank you for sharing here and tell your family I send my best and Hugs and Love to all, Teri
