She looked wretched
Cheeks are sunken
Dark circles about her eyes
Her arms were bone thin and a patchwork of purple
She began to cry
I signed her out.
No one asked to show me
I knew how to transfer her from wheelchair to car, etc.
I placed her in the car, returned their chair, and headed for "home."
I got her out of the car and into the wheelchair my brother had acquired.
I got her up the 3 stairs and into the house . . . somehow and without injury to either of us.
When I texted this . . . my S-I-L said she considered that a miracle and that she had had no idea how I would accomplish it.
She had NO interest in food.
I pulled all the frozen meals out of the freezer, that she had bought herself. None looked good to her. I begged and pleaded for every bite.
The Home Health Nurse, (two days later), and I managed to weigh her. After two days of eating half a Lean Cuisine, (and you know how small those servings are), at each meal, with snacks in between, (half a small banana, half a container of applesauce, half a container of pudding, etc.), she is missing at least 20 pounds.
I guess I know why she has no energy.
I guess I will be here longer then a month.
