Pain

I just wanted to share a resource for caregivers out there regarding pain in AD and dementia patients that I came across today. It is often difficult to tell if a person is in pain when they can't verbalize it. This online workshop shows you how.

Mom seems to be in a downward spiral. I keep hoping that she just has to regain her strength after the pneumonia. We go back on Wednesday for another chest x-ray to see if the latest round of antibiotics have worked.

Oh, Sweetie. You and Mom are in my prayers. Try to take a very deep breath and relax for a nano-second.
