Mom is super tough in the things she overcame. She had a very impoverished upbringing in KY coal mining country during the 30s and 40s. Somewhere along the way she became entitled and spoiled. She wants a magic pill for everything. She doesn’t do what physical therapist tell her to and always has a reason why. She could rehab and get up on her feet again. I actually see her not trying hard and suffering the consequences - immobility, pneumonia, blood clots, etc- because there is no magic pill for her to take. How far do you go to *make* her do the right things? I can’t want it more than she does. PLUS, she has needed a walker/cane for a while but was too prideful to use one. She got the natural consequences of her actions. It is very hard not to be resentful at times.
