My MIL has the worse arthritis our local ER dr has ever seen. It handicaps her from getting any exercise. On top of that she has AFIb, CHF, and poor circulation in her lower legs (cellulitis). She hobbles when she walks, uses a cane and can barely get from car to couch. Her health has deteriorated so much over the last 2 years. She refuses to take any medicines prescribed to her and only uses natural homeopathic medicines. I am a retired nurse so I know she is labeled "non-compliant" in her charts. After a wreck she stayed in the hospital for a week to receive Iv antibiotics and I took the opportunity to ask if they could do physical therapy while she was there. All she did was complain and never went on her own once she got out. "They made her do stuff that hurt her". I'm frustrated and heart broken because I know there's no magic pill. It's like she has given up. Should I?
