Update Mom

In the last two weeks Mom has seen the two doctors that she see the most. Dr. Weaver (her General Practitioner) told her “for a 81 year old woman with your health problems you are doing good.”

Dr. Gwinn (the eye doctor) says her pressures are within range. Her eye pressures are 17 that is up from 16. Mom has Glaucoma and is going blind. She can keep this at bay if she uses her eye drops as she is told. Dr. Gwinn did not get the results he wanted with the removal of the left Cataract and that is why the right one has not been removed.

Mom does not go anywhere except to church with Debra and she has mention stopping that. The excuse she is using is that it is out of Debra’s way to come get her. That excuse just does not fly with me, because it is just not that far out of Debra’s way. There is also a Granddaughter that comes within a 1/2 mile on her way to church, so she could stop and get Mom. Mom does not want the girls to know how bad off she is. She gets confused sometimes and she has accidents (bathroom). She still goes with me to the grocery store and out to eat once in awhile. She has to use a cart to get around a store. The girls don’t seem to understand that she can not walk around shopping for hours anymore and that is the reason she does not go anywhere with them. We are gone about two hours to the store and she goes to bed and sleeps most of the afternoon when we get back. It just wears her out.
