This roller coaster of my mom seeming like she would only live a week or two to her being perky, eating again and wanting to get rid of her 24 hour caregiver has me reeling. Summary - She lives at home, 86, cancer, weak can't walk without walker and at that very unsteady, urinary incontinence, diarrhea when she eats, diabetic. It is not safe for her to be home alone but now she says she doesn't need the care. (which she does). She is fiercely independent and strong willed which has gotten her this far. I am exhausted from the ups and downs and downright confused by this whole ride. My brother must think I'm crazy because when he finally gets around to calling her she's perfectly fine. I swear she is misdiagnosed and all her doctors have always been wrong.
