Physically, Mom is struggling. Her mobility is significantly impaired since her most recent stay at Overlake and she's frustrated by how much strength, balance and perception she's lost. When she thinks she's sitting up straight, she's actually slumped and listing to one side. She doesn't have any visual cues to go on, so it's all on feeling and that's warped. We keep trying to reassure her that it's normal, that she'll be bale to regain everything she lost and then some, but sometimes just being at the bottom of that hill, again, is too much.
The plus side is that the pain of the surgeries has diminished significantly and she's been able to eat and rest more. And, of course, that's the cornerstone to getting her strength back.
