Let me start by saying I so dearly love my ena(aka grandma)...
Some of you may remember she stayed with me for awhile a few months back while we got her meds all lined back out. At that time we set her up with a home health agency-so we as a family could have a lil piece of mind that nurses would be in and out checking on her. She lives on a farm and is by herself till my Uncle gets home around 3pm-so you can imagine how relieved we were to know someone would be there looking after her when we couldn't be there...
She has been doing really well-so well in fact, she tried to fire her Nurse and Nurse aide-gotta love the spunk of an 86 yr old-she is so spunky that she informed me last week that she was gonna teach herself to drive-now mind you the lady has never had a drivers license and the only thing she has ever driven is a tractor...
It may have been time to re-evaluate her and possibly discontinue their services until we got the results of the Dementia tests yesterday.
Ena is in the begining stages of Alzheimer's and after finding this out the main consensus is to KEEP home health-well Ena had other intentions and got very upset with me last night when I told her it may not be a good idea to stop home health right now-she informed me that she had again told them she didn't need their services and refused to give me their number.
Yiyiyi she then proceeds to tell me that she is "gonna tell on me and that she is gonna tell my daddy & Uncle on me" It is so hard to deal with a person that has a disease that you barely know anything about-It pains me that these types of episodes are only going to get worse.
The good thing is we caught it in the early stages and while it can't be cured it can be slowed down. I so LOVE my ena...This is going to be a difficult time and I have a lot to learn about the ins and outs of Alzheimer's
Daddy update-we spent the afternoon at the med oncologist office and daddy will start Chemo later this month-he will have treatments 4 days a month for 4-6 months...Please keep daddy in your thoughts and Prayers as he goes through this stage
My confession for today:I will be back with bells on tomorrow
