I'm at a crossroads, and really need some advice. Mom has lung disease that is progressing. However, the last two weeks her mobility is terrible. She can barely walk. So I've helped her up and around for two weeks. The conflict is I have scoliosis of the spine that has moved to my neck also. I'm in daily chronic pain myself. I'm a full time online college student, and single mom to a 16 year old in high school. We have Dr. Appt. Monday to get her walker and in home PT. But, I called and requested Dr. To do an assessment for SNF as well. She Will be so upset if and when she realizes this but it's really starting to run me down and increase my pain by a lot. Can't she go in temporary until her leg strength is built up? Should I feel guilty for this? Afraid she will never forgive me. When requested assessment I told her I wanted to have it done in case she doesn't improve in a week or God forbid, gets worse. I just want her to have best care possible, and I know I can't go on this way for more than another week. Trying to do the responsible thing but when tried to talk with her she was totally against idea. Any advice, Please?!?!? Have a blessed weekend!
