Our Excellent Adventure

Today Mom and I took a lift ramp van to the doctor's office. It was Mom's first time away from CB in two weeks. We had an appointment with a geriatrician and he reviewed Mom's meds and added and subtracted there. My sister wanted to know what type of dementia he thought Mom has (Alzheimer's or Lewy Body). We had been trying to get in to see this doctor for years. Mom was a little cranky about being uprooted and transported to the doctor but she settled down. Even so, he added another med, a mood stabilizer. Mom had a slice of lemon merangue pie when she got back to CB. Now I'm watching Seinfeld. I need to laugh after the latest drop in the stock market.

I think it's a really good sign your mom didn't want to be uprooted. Glad to see she's settling in.

Sounds like your mom is adjusting very well since she didn't seem to want to leave. That's a good thing! Keeping you in my thoughts. ((HUGS))

I'm glad to hear that your Mom is more "at home" in her new home! You sound happier with this situation as well! (hugs)
