May 8th 2011 9:18PM I am so relieved to know I am not alone in this. I moved my (then) 80 yr old mother in with me last May because it was getting to difficult for her to manage everyday things on her own. She came down with pneumonia in November and was diagnosed with congestive heart failure a few months before. since then it has been one hospital stay after another, with no family here to help me. I have 4 siblings, 3 of which were no more than 20 minutes from her when she still lived on her own, and all of which don't give a damn about anyone but themselves. The only one who does care lives nearly 6 hours away yet he makes the drive just to visit her for a couple hours then goes all the way back home. She's now in a short term rehab facility but soon we'll be admitting her to their long term care unit. She's so weak and frail and the forgetfulness and disorientation was just like Chris Rodell said. Someone flipped a switch and overnite my sweet, vibrant mother who you couldn't keep out of the kitchen now doesn't even know if its morning or night. Some days she still thinks this is temporary and she'll be back home in her kitchen soon. It breaks my heart every day to see her like this. I applaud all of you who are dealing with the same struggle. It is never easy to see the strongest person we've known our entire life waste away. All we can do is love them and do our best to make sure they know that.
