Just a quick update. I haven't been on the board much these last few months, A lot of thing have been changing in my life school/job and the situation with my parents. My mom was formally diagnosed with dementia a couple weeks ago, so my brother and I have been looking into a different living arrangement for her. Somewhere where she would have 24 hour assistance etc. Last weekend my dad got really sick and was taken to the hospital Monday. He passed Tuesday morning. I was fortunate enough to get there in time to see him a few minutes before he passed. Needless to say it's been an emotional and draining week, with tying up dad's affair (and this will still take some time) and now the situation with finding living arrangements for my mom has changed as well. Will post more later.

Oh Chessie, I'm so sorry to hear that!  *HUGS*  My deepest condolences to you and your family.  If you need anything, I'm just a phone call away.  Please take care, it's sad about your Mom too, I hope you can find a good place for her.

WOW just had a mind blowing experience. I'm back in Loveland to see my mom and my brother. Mom had to the appointment we went to a appointment with a specialist that I wanted to be in on. After the appointment we went to a little restaurant/bar for their unique appetizers. They were playing 70's classic rock. It was a real mind blower to realize that my mom was my age when those songs were playing on the radio!

How is your Mom doing? Have you found a place that specializes in her condition? The girls and I tried calling you the other night, we wanted to say Merry Christmas and wish you a Happy New Year. Hope you and the kitties are doing well, and that your Mom is doing better.

My mom has decided she wants to stay in Loveland since her friends are there. I was hoping that she would consider moving into a place I checked out 1/2 mile from me. But she wanted to stay where she was plus it's about 1K cheaper a month in rent.

I had a good visit with her and my brother the last couple days. She is scheduled to move in to her new little assisted living apartment at the end of the week. That is if all goes well, She gave us a scare this morning tho. My brother gave me a ride home this morning since the bus I usually take doesn't run on Sunday. He brought me early since we can't really leave mom alone. (she get into trouble) When he got back, he woke her up and she was in the bathroom for quite a while, Rusty went to check on her and she had gone back to bed. He couldn't wake her up. She wouldn't open her eyes or talk to him. She just lay in bed curled up on her side and holding her hear in ther hands. My brother got the neighbor across the hass who is a retired nurse to check her mom's vitals. Mom pulse & breathing were good but they still couldn't wake her up. The neighbor thought it would be a good idea to call 911.

The paramedics were able to wake mom up enough to get her sitting up and talking a bit. Mom walked to the living room to get on the stretcher to go to the hospital.

They don't know quite what the problem is at this point. All her test came back ok and they have ruled out a stroke but Rusty had to really argue with them to let her stay overnight. The doctor wanted to release her but she is still only barely conscious at times and still complaining of a headache. Rusty refused to take her home in that condition and was finally able to get a social worker to persuade a different doctor to let her stay the night. We'll see what happens tomorrow. At least for now she is not in immediate danger.

BTW I worked Christmas and New Years, (I'll get 16 hours of paid time off to use later in the year) I was probably on the phone working when you girls called.

I hope they find out what's wrong with her, that was scary! I'm glad your brother was able to persuade another doctor to let her stay overnight, hopefully they will run some more tests.

She's home now. I don't know if they've figured out what happened, but the neurologist (specialist) she went to wanted her to have an mri, well, now she's had 2.

I hope they can figure out what happened. Is your brother or someone staying with her right now until she's moved?

Your doing the right thing letting her stay where she is familiar with and also as you say she has friends there.

Take care now chesireKat. You and your mum are in my thoughts.
