I know you have to be so excited with that precious baby boy. I am looking forward to being a Grandmother one day. LOL I just love kids! My daughter.....not so much. But it would be different if it was hers. She just doesn't realize that yet. LOL I know it is heartbreaking for you that your Mom does not comprehend, but I am sure she hears what you are telling her. Just keep talking to her, tell her everything. I think hear us. I loved my Grandmother too, I named my daughter after her. They had a wonderful relationship. My daughter still talks about her. You're Thursday was VERY busy! WOW Thank you for the prayers! I do appreciate them. Now the oncologist has to figure out if I can do the tamoxifen or an AI. He really doesn't want me to do tamoxifen because I have portal vein hypertension. With tamoxifen, 3-4% of the people that take it get blood clots. That could be very dangerous for me if I got one. He is doing some blood work to see if I can take the AI's.
I am sorry to hear that your Mom has dementia. My Grandmother had it too. It is so hard to see those that you love with that horrible disease! I am so glad that she was found. It is so hard to be the one that has to do it all. My Mom did the majority of things for my Grandmother. She has 2 sisters, but they left everything up to my Mom. And she was also dealing with my Dad, he had a stroke a year or 2 before my Grandmother passed. I love my sister dearly, but she did not help much at all when Dad had his stroke. Mother would stay at night, and I would be there all day. It was very hard. For 3 years, while my Mom worked, I would take him to all appointments and get his lunch everyday. He usually had 3-4 appointments a week. I didn't have much time left to do anything. Luckily my daughter was a week away from 16 when he had his stroke. Moving her to a nursing facility will be hard, but just know she would not want you carry the burden of caring for her everyday.
