Good Morning !
Siri, I hope your efforts pay off better than better !!!
Enjoy your day.
Joe.. sorry to hear you're feeling puny. Hope it passes soon.
It' suppose to be HOT and sunny tiday, but so far, it's breezy and overcast.
Sure hope that sun comes out and warms things up around here. I'm ready for a hammock day !
Been a rough past couple days here.. Mutti is deteriorating quickly. PT has reluctanlty given up on any hope of her walking or even transferring again. She is entirely too weak and too frightened. May have to get a hoyer lift in here soon, as I simply cannot lift her dead weight. The pivot board is of no use either, if she can't even out any weight on her legs to stand.
She is not eating much anymore, either, and that is one thing she has ALWAYS enjoyed. I'm having to feed her often, she seems too weak to even lift her spoon anymore. And after she's eaten, she just goes right off to sleep again.. it wears her out just to eat.
It's been emotionally horrible for me this week, watching her go downhill like this. She sleeps and sleeps and sleeps and sleeps. Her little shoulder bones are sticking out now, too... it's awful. She has no ability to move her left foot anymore.. has sensation, but cannot move it. And her left leg causes her great pain anymore.. you can barely touch it and she cries out in pain. Need to get another UA, there's gritty grey material in her tubing, looks like fine grey/black sand.
From here on out I'm not going to ask her to do anything she can't do.. will feed her if neccessary, and let her eat anything she wants except for sodium.. hard enough to keep her pressures down as it is. So it will be comfort measures only... pamper her and love on her, and keep her as happy and comfortable as possible. I don't know what else to do. So sad, so so sad. I have actually considered hospice , but I just don't know..... she could linger another 6 mos or a year or two.. then again, she could be gone in a week. I just don't know anymore what to think or do for her............
Well, I'll check back in again later. Hope everyone has a great weekend.
