Hello Lyn. I just saw this thread now. I cant believe how long it has been since I last posted on here.
your foot,is it much better now?
My Sisters symptoms seem to be worse lately such as with eating and drinking. We have to help her with that quite a bit more than before. When she spends time with me I find that a drinking straw makes a huge difference to how much she will drink. Over all,giving her time and patience makes a big difference to how she copes with everything.
I just wish her Husband didnt drink too much,then he would cope better and the knock on effect would be that my sister would cope better too. Its frustrating because Myself,my other sisters and my niece,work hard to help my sister feel secure and we do our best to make a calm situation,but my Brother in law seems to undo everything we have done with my sister within the space of a few hours. She ends up,stressed,soiling herself,and pacing up and down for hours on end.
I hate the situation. The Doctors and my sisters nurse know about
the situation but aparently there is nothing that they can do other than what is being done already.
Sorry,I didnt mean to go on. Thats one reason why I dont post much because I get myself wound up over it all.
