Hey I am so tired I could just faint. I haven’t felt good but life is getting harder. Mom and Dad have dementia and they are both going down hill at the same time. I have to even remind them at regular times to go to the restroom. I still can’t get my father to take a regular shower. He forgets when he takes one so he won’t for like two weeks. I can’t make him but I don’t want him to go that long. I don’t know what to do.
My momma started sneezing and within two days has a fever of 102. I tell her that she needs to go to doctor but she doesn’t think so. So I had an appointment for my dad’s ears. While we were there the clinic we go to for them has a same day care center which is like an ER in the office. So as we go by to go to dads appointment i ask a lady, “Oh what are you here for?”
She was there for the same reason Mom needed to go. I have to do it this way because she is very sad when I try to tell her she needs to do something. So I have to come up with ingenious ways to get around it. She has bad bronchitis and may have a touch of pneumonia. They have her on oral antibiotics which is a trick to get her to take.
My dad had a appointment the other day to test his ears. He has almost no hearing. We learned he reads lips. I have to find out how to get hearing aids for $2000. I am so upset at this one lady at the medical supply company that I had to change. We live in a small town so there is only one. This lady doesn’t like trailers to she don’t let my dad get his power wheelchairs. I don’t know how much more I can do.
On a happier note my great niece is supposed to be born today.
