Mom blew off day care again today. Her caregiver called around 10 and asked if Mom had taken her medication (she had). She said that Mom was really grumpy and adamant that she was not going anywhere.

Betsy, I can relate about being driven nuts by the feistiness, but it means that she still has some independence. It's the whining that drives me nuts the most.
