my mother has a doctor's appt coming up to go over blood work and evaluate her conditon. My brother and I plan on both going to the appt but the last time she became upset after we left apparently because she was uncomfortable with both of us there. I understand that this is mostly the disease talking and I plan on asking her well before we go whether she wants me there or not. Do I simply let my brother go and wait for his report? I feel this is an important appt and that an extra set of ears and possibly questions wouldn't hurt. What should I do? I should say that she has already mentioned that she has an appt that he is taking her to.
