is still sick. We have her scheduled for surgery (knee replacement) on the 24th of March. It is so far away, but the earliest they could get for her. She is in so much pain and is becoming disoriented and confused because (I hope) of all of the medicines they have her on. I have always been so proud of her that even in her 80's she had a sharper mind than many who were in their 60's. Not so any more. Everything makes her cry. On Friday we could not find a little book she writes notes to herself in and she was crying because of that. That embarrasses her and she cries more. I did find it for her and we put it back into her purse right beside her chair. Another incident was when she had to go potty. She asked me if my brother was at home and I said no. Soon I heard her on the phone calling him and asking him to come home and take her potty. I said. "Mama, I am here, I can take you." "Oh," she said, "Larry never mind, Eve can take me." This just is not my mother.
I have a schedule worked out with my sisters, two of them, that one of us are there every day. I am taking Monday and Tuesdays, another is coming on Wednesday which is one of her days off, and another on Thursday and Friday.
Since I do not want Olivia to witness her GG in the condition she is in right now, Angie is putting her into Daycare while GG is sick. Today being Monday, I should be there but my brother is not working until Wednesday so he is staying with her. I really need him to also. Hope that does not sound selfish.
I truly pray that once the knee is replaced and she is not in continual pain she will make significant improvement.
