Mom is 78 and I am the only one who cares for her. Mom has had 3 accidents (falling) and 2 of them required surgery (hip and spine). Before each accident, I was working with mom to pursue dentures which would involve extracting what remaining teeth she had (maybe 8). She is so tired, and seems to be losing will to keep going. The loss of teeth have also had a lot to do with her not smiling and eating her favorites like nuts and other snacks. I am afraid the limitations she will face to recuperate may set her back even more. I want her to smile again. This breaks my heart. She also has a hard time hearing and nods yes to almost everything without realizing what she is agreeing to. This is something I wanted to address because it could also be dangerous not hearing what goes on around her. When I brought this up, she insists I am trying to make her "brand new" again. I just want her to be comfortable not brand new. It hurts to hear her say things like that. I know it may be her reaction due to her dementia. I want you to know I would take all the pain she endures and give her my good parts so she wouldn't hurt anymore. Back, hip, hands,etc.... I would give my life for her.
