And Now We Wait

0
Now it is the waiting game. Waiting for the facility to call with an open space.

We go to the doctor on Wednesday for the assessment. I told the doc not to tell her the real reason we are there, to just play it like it is a regular checkup. I don’t want her to freak out, especially as it could take a month to have a space. We see the neurologist (okay the nurse practitioner) the following week.

What I don’t like is that at first she will have a roommate in the general area, and it could be six months before she can get in to the best (greenhouse) unit. And I have no idea how she will deal with a roommate, other than me she’s never had one. We shared a room when I was growing up as the house only had two bedrooms and Grammy got the other one.

Thing is, right now as fast as she is fading I am not sure she has six months. She isn’t eating enough, isn’t drinking either. Can’t stand or walk. I told the social worker in admissions we need to get in ASAP as I can’t care for her.

Looked in the mirror tonight and I have aged 10 years in the last one.
