Today I have to lift a wheelchair in and out of the car 6 times and push Mom around, when I have had to use a walker with a seat for many years. I have been shaking with weakness most days this month. I'm sure praying to get through that. One minute at a time I guess. I just dread passing out when I'm out in public, because then I'll be in the hospital and Mom will be left helpless. The Dr. raised my pain medicine to 3x normal + some other pain meds in between the regular dosage, so my lupus is the worst it has ever been since my Dad died. I need to forget my medical care and just help Mom, it seems.
This will be Mom's first time using a wheelchair ever. She should have been crippled twice. She had polio, but was cured, then both legs were run over by a heavy gravel truck, which just crushed them, but again she was healed, miraculously. Crush injuries just do not heal like that naturally. That healing kept her on her feet almost until age 80, and she might get strong enough to get out of a wheelchair soon, if I can get her to eat to regain her strength! I sure needed the housekeeper for this today.Well here I go to pretend I'm superwoman! lol.
