That is what also happened to my grandmother and she was only 85 yrs old in 1987 but a person can only have so many strokes and soon they are just trapped in their bodies ..
But it sounds like every one is having or had the same kind of problems and when I was young I just never figured I would live so long having so much fun and even jumping out of aircraft just for the pure enjoyment or work on average I should have not gotten so old now I am looking to be like all the others in the hospital I have known .
God bless ya all for taking care of your family members .
Gander, my mom is 80 years old, she'll be 81 in July. She is refusing to talk to family & friends, well, she'll talk to family when we go see her, but she won't answer most phone calls or texts & she doesn't answer them. That is a huge change for her. I'm going out tomorrow ( Sunday) to see her at the rehab center. My brother & 1 of our nieces went to see here today. I am hoping she will be able to regain at least a part of her independance.
Is the VA talking about having you go to stay? My parents had a plan in place for what to do when one of their health failed, but I don't know if they will really follow it now. They had talked about selling their house and moving into a retirement/assisted living facility.
You're in my thoughts and prayers.
Ya @karenerwin, I understand where she is coming from as my mother is kind of going through the same thing right now and her and I were talking about it last night as she has been avoiding all phone calls but I just so happened to catch one of my younger brother at her home last night and ya got it he answered the phone and he used it as a way to get out of the house by handing the phone off to her, I ask my mom if she was having the family get together at her place this summer and her reply was that maybe if she were to let everyone believe that her health was failing the all eight of her children would show up as this was the norm when she was in the hospital and that way her days would not be spent on the phone and talking to each individual one of her children at a time and have them under her roof at one time and they could see for them selves not only how but what she was doing ..... Ya now I understood how my mother raised eight children with out going insane but the laws were a lot different fifty to plus sixty years ago ....
