mamasbabygirl Posted January 16, 2006 Share Posted January 16, 2006 Mom is feeling overly discouraged bc there has been nothing done to help her since coming to rehab. I asked a nurse to come explain to her what the plan is bc she was feeling down and was incoherent really until today. The nurse said OK, but never came to her room. She claims they walk by her room every 3-4 hours and ask if she needs anything. Tom (SF) and his sister act like she's already gone. SF's sister said she is not capable of making decisions (like she asked SF to bring her nail polish to rehab and he acted like she was nuts for asking) and I told his sister that if she can't make decisions, then there is no reason for her to strive to get better. She simply would not want to live that way anyhow. That is the whole struggle between her and SF-control. I was talking to mom on my cell phone while driving home from dinner tonight (it was MIL's 72nd bday get together) and she was crying about wanting to go home, so John and I snuck up on her. We smuggled my 5 year old Graden into rehab with us to all kiss her goodnight. Surprised the crap out of her. I think I may go kiss her every night. It was nice. SF pulled me in the hall today and told me not to bring any food to mm bc she is a strict 1800 calorie diet and that I needed to encourge her to move bc he cannot take care of her if she was released like this. The realizations are sad but true. Mom's neighbor who is 42 with 4 kids at home died yesterday. Mom and her went to the same oncologist and SF has not told mom. I am afraid to tell mom. She was out walking a month or so ago. She looked so good. Well, that is the daily report. Mom seems more alert today, not so tired, but very sad. She said that she can't wait for Tom's sister to leave. I pray to God to show me the best way to manage the situation and that I can turn over the things beyond my control. GOD-My times are in your hand!!!! Peace and love to us all. Good night... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
