Re-Cap on Momma

Thursday, July 10, 2014

We had everything finalized and getting ready to go choose a room when the admitting RN came back into the room stating that the notes from mom's doctor descried mom as aggressive and hostile. They refused her admittance into their home for the safety of the other patients.
Mom was so confused and sad, I was both hurt and angry for her and yes, for us all as a family!
So we are back to step one and now I have to figure out were to go from here. It's obvious she doesn't need to be alone anymore.

    Deb, I agonized for you, reading your blog. Thank God for people like Susan who posted just before me--I hope you can start a dialogue with her as someone who has been there.
We love you and I am keeping you in my thoughts.

    Debbie, I haven't been with you for most of your journey with your mom, only recently. However, I went through 20 years with my mom before she pasased due to Alzeheimer's, and some of what you say sounds like your mom is beginning to have some mental health issues. It does sound as though she needs to go to some facility, but search for one that has various "steps" so as her conditions warrant it, they will put her on a different floor or in a different unit. That way it is much easier on you, less paperwork for you, and much easier on your mom. Finding the right place is hard, and we drove hundreds of miles looking at places. She had to be moved a number of times, each move was harder on her than the previous one. Finally I began asking EVERYONE I met if they knew of a good place, a place where maybe a friend had told them that they were happy that their relative was there, etc. I spoke to people in doctors' waiting rooms, people at the hair salons, people I was introduced to by others, and I sent emails to everyone on my email list! Finally we found a wonderful place where she was able to stay until she died.

Best wishes! And hugs!
Susan

Re-Cap on theRV

Thursday, July 10, 2014

Well, the RV is sitting in the driveway just the way we left it when we backed it in. We got home about 6pm from collecting it from the RV lot and decided to get rest and start loading it the next day. That's when we got the 1st call from mom at 11:30pm that she wasn't well. We spent 4 day's at the hospital with her and then once a day for the next 2 day's. We have an appointment at one of the senior living centers today and my nerves are shot. She asked me why I was forcing her to move there...... This is all just killing me! I am so sad doing all of this for her and in her mind (and mine) to her.... but with two emotional brake downs during this time with her and two episodes of complete forgetfulness, we really have no choice. We brought her to the house for the weekend and the screaming fit she had made us take her home. She couldn't act that way in front of the children.... They were scared and confused and so was I!
I hate this! Truly HATE IT!

    I understand. I was working on doing the same thing just before my mother passed away earlier this year! It's such a hard thing to do - take care of our parents! I'm here if you need to talk!

HUGS!

Again!

Tuesday, July 08, 2014

Been terribly lost and out of shape for the last 3 weeks.... I'm so sorry to have been missing in action!

Day 1 re-start sucks.... I have no other word to describe the empty feeling nagging at my stomach right now. UGH....... Up 4 pounds since I posted last and feeling the acid reflux monster clawing at my throat and tongue. The worst thing is that I did this to myself.... again!

I know the steps, the angles, the things to do that make it all better, I just need to fortitude to fight a battle ..... again!

    I know I am commenting on a later post , but i just started over today and you were the first friend's post I saw. Good to see your postings. Sorry to hear about your mother. I lost mine about three months ago. It is hard to go through the ageing yrs. with our parents. I am going to be going through it with my own children soon. I am 59 and in about 6 mos. will be 60. I decided today that I had to start moving or lose all my muscle in my legs. So, singed back up at the pool to do water aerobics today. I Will start Monday.

I will be reading your blogs and wishing you well. Keep hanging in there. Hugs, Judy

    And again, and again, and again, and as many again are needed to keep us pursuing a better health and lifestyle.

We just need to stop a little to thing about what happened, why, what triggered or caused our last mistake to see if we will be able to avoid or minimize its effects next time.

I am in the same road as you. I am struggling to get into an other again to reach my goal.

    I read something once that went something like: Forgive yourself for yesterday it is in the past and you can't change it, look forward to tomorrow for new things await you, live for today for this is the moment you are in!
Something to think about. Sorry things are kinda rough getting started, I know you have had a lot of stress going on and that has not helped. Know your emoticon 's are here praying for you and rooting you on. emoticon

My Dear friend Deb. SLow down, my friend. Wipe the past from your mind. You are NOT re-starting. This is a new beginning. You are just now waking up. You need to unfurl yourself, slowly, before you try to fly. Take 1 step today. Maybe eat healthy for 1 meal. That IS progress. Tomorrow, choose 1 step to take . Not and and and. 1 step only. Think carefully about what tiny step you can reach. Follow your plans and accomplish that 1 tiny goal and then, CELEBRATE your success. This is NOT a race or something you can rush through. It may seem to you that this is a waste of time, but, it will build your confidence as you build 1 success onto another. This is ALL new to you. Take your time. After all, where are you rushing off to? Enjoy the journey and marvel at the changes as you easily make each one. You are AMAZING and I know you can emerge from your unfurling unstressed and free to move forward. Take it easy,

    I certainly understand your frustration but look at it this way --- you are far ahead of those of us who can't seem to get going again at all. At least you are setting a goal for yourself and making an effort to get back on track. More power to you!

We are leaving to pick up our RV!

We are leaving to pick up our RV! emoticon

emoticon I'm so excited and I just can't hide it! emoticon
I'm about to loose control and I think I like it! emoticon

I also realize this signals a long weekend of moving things out of the house (now my daughters house) and into the rv but we have a home! I can enjoy my daughters company again, she can now completely set up house , and the kids can have their own space. So I guess you could say "We're so excited" emoticon ......

I pray you all have as happy and joyful a morning as we are! emoticon
