My Mom had back surgery 5 wks ago. Over the weekend I brought Mom home with me. I only live about 3 miles from her but I had to stop staying with her because of problems I'm having(cancer).
When I took her back home on Sunday and straighten up the house for her, she out of the blue told me she was going to Cry. I asked her why and she said she didn't know. Mom loves to manipulate me...always has, and I took it as her doing it again and just told her "by". I did feel bad about not staying..but with her it could have been for days and I just can't rest at her house plus she hollers for me constantly. My other sister said she does her too and we both are beside ourselves with Mom and her childish ways....what else can I do?
My sister who is POA won't hear about putting Mom in assistant living but she's planning trips and also going to warmer climate soon. When I talk to my sister who is POA about what Mom does, she just says "She hasn't done that with me" which makes me want to scream. I don't even tell her things anymore because she isn't here enough to see what is happening and when she is she doesn't want to hear any of it. Any ideas?
