My mother 83 with trouble walking, getting food to her mouth, incontinence, and dementia is scheduled to have a shunt put in. I pray for improvement as it really is getting to be too much for me. I recently had shoulder surgery and I know helping her in her wheel chair, with the walker, getting in and out of the car are hurting my shoulder. I am the only caregiver as my siblings are out of state. I have been very impatient this last week, tired, need a break its been 24/7 and it is getting harder by the minute!
