20170520_105500 I don’t know what to do. Mum had carpal tunnel surgery last week. Her hand is swollen (this photo was on Sunday, but it is just as bad today) and she refuses to do anything. She hasn’t had any pain pills for more than 12 hours, she says she is fine. She is staggering like a drunken sailor (!! Song from Elementary school!!) , her blood sugars are ok, and I don’t know what to do with her. ok, am off to mom sit.

  1. Don’t forget that mom is mom..,

    She knows what’s best for her..,

    Mom is so sweet and caring..,

    She is handling the surgery really good..,

    If you are concerned about the swellings call the doc and find out if that normal to stay swollen for so long…

    Just be close and just in case it gets too painful for her..
    but just try to be the loving daughter… and try not to be too motherly..,
    Mom still likes to be in control of herself…

  2. I know it’s so hard with stubborn patients who think they’ve got all their shit handled!
    Hats off to you for your patience with her and the sacrifices you make to take care of her! Much love!
