I’m frazzled. I went to school in Turlock for several years. This week I got lost trying to find the hospital THREE TIMES and got lost trying to get home TWICE.
It’s only Thursday.
Mom and I agreed on one thing – she needs a new PCP. She’s been going to the same doctor for years. She gets regular check ups. She’s been complaining of chronic fatigue and stuff like getting out of breath from routine things like vacuuming for at least two years. She had blockage in three arteries, including one that was nearly 100% blocked. He never caught it.
He never ran any tests or gave her a referral to a specialist. One time last year when she complained he told her “Well, you are 80 years old.” I guess he assumed she was just a whiner.
God only knows what would have happened if she had gone to see him instead of going to the emergency room.
I will be kinda busy for the next couple weeks at least. Mom can’t drive and I’m not gonna leave her by herself all day and all night. She needs help with cooking and cleaning. She’s almost as upset about the no driving thing as the no caffeine or alcohol instruction.
I have to take her to her hair appointment tomorrow. One the bright side we’ll be watching SF Giants games together.
I want to thank everybody for your thoughts and prayers. Y’all almost made me feel warm and fuzzy.
I hate feeling warm and fuzzy.
