I took care of my mom 24/7 for 5 years. She was taken from me quickly by a massive stroke. When she was able to walk on her own without any assistance, she twisted her ankle and fell. She had broken her leg. I nursed her for 6 months while she was bed bound, bedpan, bathing, dressing, most importantly exercising, etc. Some said that would be her end but I was determined and got her back to full mobility with only a walker. After that, I took every step with her. Made her meals, handled the kitchen, laundry, housework and food shopped during her naps. We went to dr's appointments, shopping, visi ting, out to eat and to the movies. We laughed and told stories and had a great time. Basically, whatever she wanted or needed. I gave her medicine and vitamins. Kept her on as much of a schedule that she would tolerate. Took care of all her hygenic needs. I missed her and loved her and loved taking care of her.
