I haven't been posting very much but its been a a busy month for me. Working on my garden and my flower beds and my Mom's flowers. But then we had another blow on saturday. My step-dad had to be rushed to the hospital. All of a sudden he couldn't walk and was losing control of bodily functions. They have done all kinds of tests, bloodwork and still have not really found the root of what is causing this to happen. The MRIs do not show signs of a stroke but something is going on with his blood. Plateletts are low, white count low. When the stand him up his blood pressure drops very low. They are now calling it Ataxia. I have read on the internet about it and he does have the symptoms but didn't seem like they come on that quickly.
So I don't think they know what is wrong with him. They wanted to send him to a nursing home in the town we live in but we want him to go to the rehab that he went to after his heart surgery this past summer. If we can't get him in the rehab then my brother is going to bring him home and take him to Physical Therapy. I don't know how that will work out as my stepbrother is not in the best of health either and to have Pop in this shape is going to be even harder on him. My Mom is taking it really hard too and I am pretty worried about her.
I wish I had a sister who would come and help us. Right now its just on my stepbrother and I to do it all. We have other brothers but they are busy with their own lives and can't come help us.
But we are trying to help Mom and Dad and are determined to not let them down.
I took off work yesterday and cleaned their house and took care of Mom. She was so worn out and I made her stay home and rest.
Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
Much Love to you all!
