I am beginning to feel better. I stayed home again today and slept until 2:00. Mom's caregivers did a great job with her today. And Mom is cooperating too. Last week we upped her antidepressant and it seems to be helping her mood, but she's also been having episodes of agitation which might be from the higher dosage. She was very upset this afternoon when I woke up, I think because she was worried about me. She kept asking for me and she was crying. Once she saw me though she calmed down. I suggested that she play the piano for Alysha her caregiver and she did. Now that's something more that the two of them can do. Mom remembers her scales and plays those. She's really good. She can't read music anymore nor does she remember the one song she used to play from heart. It's pretty amazing what she remembers.

I'm going to the doctor today. I'm still not 100%. And I'm worried about giving it to Mom. Thanks everybody for your comments and support. You are the best. I'm adopting you all into my family.
