Today I am witnessing what Terri goes through to give Mom a shower. She started around an hour ago trying to convince Mom to take one. Mom is screaming and yelling all through the process. Even the cats want nothing to do with it. Olivia is hanging out with me in the basement. Poor Terri! After all is done though Mom is grateful and glad she had the shower. Darn this AD. I hate what it is doing to my mom.

Shower days were one of the worst for me. Even though Mom didn't yell or scream, she was just nasty about it all. But she always felt better after getting clean. Sorry you and Teri are going through this. Hang in there Olivia!

Poor Olivia, she is really not thrilled with her mom being angry and neither am I!

Betsy, how are you?

years ago, when this AD thing 1st started in my family, my sisters and i used to joke about me having to give mom baths someday. i always said, "no freakin' way."
but then i also always wondered, who would kill one another 1st? me or her, if we ever had to spend more than 30 minutes together at a time...

now i can see a day coming when i will even be able to bathe her. (i'm NOT looking forward to it, but i could do it.)
