Sorry I'm posting again. All the topics are different, so I hope it's ok.
I'm so frustrated! About 2 a.m. l knew Mom was in the bathroom. I was wide awake but didn't hear her go in. I went by the back door to let the cat in and I hear BOOM!
I went running in and my son came flying up the stairs, it was so loud!
My stomach's already in a knot. When I got to her she was sitting on the floor, in front of the bedroom door naked from the waist down. She had her right foot in her pj bottoms. No depends nor regular underwear. Those weren't the pjs she was wearing when she went to bed. She was wearing a clean depends at bedtime too.
Figured she peed through and went to change. She usually doesn't pee fully in her pull ups, there more for leakage.
I pulled her PJs up and help my son get her up. I can't pick her up alone. And she doesn't have the strength in her legs to help.
We got her in bed and asked what happened. She said she went to bathroom yada yada yada.....but as she was talking her lips were...weird. She even asked if she was talking funny. She said she felt like she was.
I slept in her recliner next to her bed. She goes to PCP at 11 this morning anyway
I was fuming, she just don't listen! She's supposed to use her walker all the time. Some mornings I get up and she's on the toilet crying because She can't get up. No walker in there.
Its not that she forget to use it either.
She walks around my house like an eleven month old baby just learning how to walk, yet not having mastered balance . Or better yet, a drunk.
I constantly have a knot in my stomach cause she just gets up and goes, weaving , bouncing off walls, grabbing for air, leaning backwards, sideways, over face down and now her knees just spontaneously give out!
No one took me seriously when I told them about her short term memory issues. Although I don't think she forgets the walker.
Aside from wrapping her in bubble wrap, what can I do?
