Hope you're doing well. I have not been here for quite a while. My life is quite crazy right now. Besides the vision issues that have continued ..... & no , none of it was Diabetes related. Very frustrating & making it hard to do my job. But Had a a multitude of dental issues. Bone grafts upper & lower jaw, implants etc. The whole process takes over a year & is costly but had a severe infection that required continuous antibiotic therapy & that just didn't work out anymore. Waiting for the bone grafts to heal before the implants get done.
My Mother began to decline in health last November. Was in & out of the Hospital from a DVT (Deep vein Thrombosis) in her leg with cellulitis, a Fall with a fractured hand requiring surgery & pins to repair. 2 falls between Christmas & New Year with a heart attack & ending up with 2 hospitalizations with Congestive Heart Failure. After the falls I closed up her apartment while she was hospitalized. Went to Rehab after & came to live with me at the end of January. Has been with me since except a hospitalization for CHF end of April. She'll be 94 this month. Has lost 35 lbs since last fall & is very weak.
Having her home with me is good but also difficult. She cannot go up & down the steps except to go to an appt. So I take meals up to her room all the time. Now her appetite has gotten bad. It's just a downhill spiral. Still working to pay off my dental bills, then hoping to retire.
Has been difficult to get to see my kids as much as I used to.
