Last Minute Doctor Appointment

February 07, 2018

We had a last minute doctor appointment yesterday. The doctor wanted to follow up with my mom, in order to give refills on prescriptions.

Everything went well. My mom was happy to go to the doctors. She wasn't sure the reasoning why we would be going to the doctor, but she was willing to go happily.

It was time for her to get prescription refills, & bloodwork done. The appointment went smoothly.

The lady who was taking my mom's blood asked my mom to sign her initials on some paperwork. She handed the clipboard to my mom. My mom stared at it for awhile. She didn't know what to do. I took the clipboard from her, and helped initial and sign for her. My mom laughed, and watched me sign and initial the papers. As I was doing that, my mom asked me what I was writing.

It's just nice to see a smile on my mom's face when she goes to the doctor.

The beginning process of FTD my mom had anger and was in denial that anything was wrong with her. She is now past that stage, and now she goes peacefully because she has no idea why we are going to the doctor's office.

Here is a video below, from yesterday, to show how we never know how our conversations will go with my mom because of what she says or does. She was wearing ear plugs when we went to pick her up at 3:30PM. She has a habit of wearing ear plugs every night. This is one habit that she has held onto. This was the first time that I've ever noticed that she forgot to take her earplugs out, when she woke up in the morning.

Smiling & Laughing is the Best Medicine!

  1. What good daughters! You are doing an amazing job of caregiving *and* helping other caregivers through your blog. My father died in his 80s just as his Alzheimer's was going to have to be dealt with, so I haven't had to go through this ordeal, but I have an inkling. Keep up the good work, and take care of yourselves, too.

  2. You are doing an amazing job at being there for your Mom. I can not imagine what you are going through :(
