Moms doctor called me today. He said she’s lost 15 pounds since last month and is dehydrated. It could just be pneumonia or a uti but it could also be a stage of the Alzheimer’s progressing. He’s getting tests done and is going to start a drip for iv fluids.
Of course this set me off on a crying jag. I just saw her on Saturday and she seemed fine. This has really thrown me for a loop. I’m not ready for her to go yet. I know she’s diminished from what she used to be but I thought we had more time. I really thought we had more time. I’m not ready for her to be completely gone. But I don’t want her suffering either. This has been weighing heavily on me. Keep us in your prayers.
