Dizzy, I'm So Dizzy My Head Is Spinning

Dizzy, I'm So Dizzy My Head Is Spinning
Today is one of those bad days for Mom.

Yesterday she was up on her own several times and pretty clear headed. Today, I woke her at 10:00. Her voice was rickety, her arm was shaking and she had no teeth. I guess the teeth issue is a pretty good indicator on how she's going to do on any given day.

No teeth, foggy mind. Perhaps it's how deep she is sleeping, perhaps it's another clog slipping. I'll only figure it out as the day goes on. She's having trouble eating today, but so far she's had a glass of water and a cup of coffee. I can only wonder how much longer she will be able to feed herself.

Here's another issue that's coming out. For the past couple of weeks Mom leaves the water running in the bathroom sink almost every time she goes in there. Today, and I caught it by chance, she left he water running full blast and the sink basin was nearly full and running out the overflow hole. Luckily that was keeping up or it would have been a real mess. It's just one more thing to worry about and keep me up at night. She's still making one to two bathroom trips nightly, so now I have to check each time.

Fun, fun, fun, but sad at the same time. Seeing my Mom slip away, sometimes on a daily basis, is tough at times.

Well, that's enough for now. Have a great day!
