Parents...

I just got done talking to my mom and found out that her heart is enlarged, from what, they don't know yet. They are going to do some tests, but the doctor told her she can't do anything at the house. No housework, nothing. He said she was very sick and to take it easy and get lots of rest. I don't know anything about enlarged hearts. I don't know what causes them, don't know how to prevent them and sure as hell don't know what to do about it. All I know is she's 82 and very frail right now. I'm worried. She also found out that she has Diabetes and high blood pressure. Looks like I might be making a trip down them sometime soon. Depends on what the doctor says. I was just there the first part of April, but if she's really frail, I need to spend some time with her. *sigh* Don't you hate when you get older and it makes your parents seem that much more frail?

I hope you all have a good week.

Hugs, Patt

I'm really sorry to hear such news about your mom. It's so hard when our parents become frail. I hope the doctor can make her comfortable. {{{{{{doublehugs}}}}}

Thank you for the hugs, Grey. I'm waiting to see what the doctor says at the next visit and go from there.

If it's not one thing, it's another. I'm so sorry to hear your Mom has this problem and that Vincent also has worries.

I hope both of them do better soon.

And you're right, it sucks that the illegals get so much, and we in the middle class are left holding the bag.

I'm so sorry about your mother. It's very hard to see our parents getting frail for sure.

Sending many positive thoughts your way, for both of you.

Thank you, Helen. She has the tests on the 7th. I thought that was odd that they're waiting that long, but what do I know?

Hopefully it means there's not that much of a rush? That's what I always hope when the date is set so far away.

I'll be thinking of you both for sure. =>}
