We made it to all 4 doctors appointments yeasterday
I had my monthly doctors appointment at 11 got some shots in the neck to stop the migraine that I had been trying to get for 2 days. I was so happy to see that needle it meant releaf was on the way. Then Ron had an appointment at 1:30 and grammie at 2:15. He dropped me and grammie off and went to his. We had to have grammie's chest x-rays done in the same building. We got them done and before we got in to see the doctor Ron made it back. Grammie got the good to go from her lung doctor. On the way to the next doctors appointment we grabbed some Mc D's to go. We made it to Grammie's doctor on time. He was very pleased at how well she was doing! She has lost 16 pounds in 3 months do to heather eating habits and less sweets in the house. Some thing my MIL always had to have in the house. With both being diabetics they don't need a lot of. With going to the store for the food I have control over what I'm cooking. Grammie is only 5'1 and was at 154 pounds. Now down to 140 this will help her breathing too plus is it helps with the diabetes. I do fix sweets to eat but they are from scratch and healthier made. Hubby has lost wait too he's down 20 pounds. I am trying like hell to gain some LOL I had lost too much wait over the winter and was down to 103 from 116. Stress and pain not a good combo. I am up to 109 this is a good thing. Now back to Grammie while at the family doctor I ask what we can do about the bruises and bed sores from her bed and she ripes her skin on the bed. He told me this was part of the ageing process but he did come up with ways to help. We are going out and getting a camping mattress for her bed and a foam over lay. The air mattress will be softer to lay on and we can advice it to where there's fewer pressure points. He could not get over how grate she was doing and even ask me what kind of nurses train I had. Non I told him I worked in an animal shellder that is it. Plus I have taken care of 2 terminally ill relatives in there home till they passed. Grammie let him know in no in no certain terms she was stay with us and would never go to a nursing home. Last year he wanted to put here there. That is how we ended up with her and my MIL living with us. The doctor told her he thought she was getting grate care and even better then she would get in a home so she is staying. Grammie and I talked the other day she is afraid her kids will stick her in a home. My MIL has medical power of attorney over her I told her before that would happen I would have her sign it over to Ron or me. She is not going to no nursing home she has a home! If my MIL would have taken the time to care for grammie last year they would not have been talking nursing home in the first place. It only came up after grammie had been in the hospital for 7 days and then back in 4 days later for 10 days. They seen that in the 4 days at home her bed sore got a lot worst do to my MIL not treating it. My MIL also didn't make sure grammie was taking her med's it was up to Grammie to get her own med's and take them and remember if she did and when. My MIL was too busy to do it she always had some where to be other then home with grammie. Grammie's nerves seem to be a lot better. She don't feel like she is a Berton on me I let her know that she is not. I don't stomp away to do what she needs done or roll my eyes at her or mumble under my breath as I'm walking away or wine how I have to do it all. It's grate not having my MIL here to do this. After she moved out I called her on here mumbling as she walked a way from me. She has not done it again. I don't have to put up with her shit and I''m not going to.
