The Difficulty of Taking Charge

**Disclaimer: This blog does not give any medical or financial advice.


I am so glad I made the difficult decision of forcing mom to see a new gastro dr. She liked her FORMER gastro dr…why???  He was “nice.”   Well, as my Aunt Dot said, “Who Cares About Nice?”   Yes, we all want our drs to be “nice,” but being nice should include being very aware and knowledgeable.  What a difference in Mom’s demeanor this morning!   No depression!  She thanked me for taking her to a new dr yesterday and realized it was a necessity. I’m not saying this new dr is a miracle worker, I’m taking it one day at a time. Mom came in the car with me and even walked thru the supermarket late this morning!!!! WOW to that!!!   As I type this, a new roof is being put on my home, so staying inside. I may have the afternoon off from Mom’s. I didn’t return there for lunch since I was there from about 7am til close to noon and she was doing so much better. We speak on the phone a lot!!!!   Today is the best day in a long time.  I am so thankful.
