Bad Days


Mom has been having a bad week
she has a UTI
which causes altered mental status
adding an antibiotic means
changes in her other meds...mainly her antidepressant
she's fine until late afternoon
then her feisty, cranky and angry side comes out
so sorry she has to go through this
communicating with her doctor is impossible
yesterday I showed her this photo
pretty much knowing her reaction ahead of time
" he might be a good looking man if he cut that hair
no wonder he's having a bad day"

So sorry. Hopefully the antibiotic will be done soon and the infection cleared up.
Hugs :)

Sorry about your mom; drawing on a lot of patience for you. I love that quote and Alexander's too. Be kind to yourself too. :)

Sorry your mom is sick and having to redo her meds, I know how much stress that can be on her and her mood, and hard for you to see her like that. Hugs and prayers that she will heal quickly.

Crap. Hope this resolves soon.

I am very sad for you and your mom, Kelley. Some days, it feels like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. All you can do is hold on tight and get through it minute by minute.

Hope your mom is doing better and hope you are hanging in there. Hey, I'm an old broad but think Johnny Depp is gorgeous. He has great bone structure and cleaned up or messy I'm still a fan. Anyway, thank you for your wonderful design for the challenge. Hope you check out my progress so far and hope you are pleased.
