Bill came over to visit and stay with Mom & Dad this weekend. It is such a big help!! I don't have to worry about their well being while he is there so it is a wonderful break. He came over a few weeks ago too. I truly do appreciate it and I know they do too!
Mom has slowed down a lot over the last couple of weeks. She still walks, but now she is confined to going out the front door and staying in the front yard...(for her own safety). Her walk is more like a slow shuffle and she does get 'stuck' while walking or sitting sometimes, kind of like how she did before the shunt was put in. She will sit down in her chair and take rests or occasional naps (she has sure got alot of use out of her elevator chair) Mom isn't so interested in going for drives, nor does she eat as much as she used to. Roy used to be the slow eater, now he seems like a speed eater.Roy is tired most of the time, but he tries to get out and take a short walk with Mom most days. He does enjoy his Friday morning breakfasts with a few of his old friends.
Life is full of mysteries...the brain is a huge one.
