Hi Everyone, I wanted to give an update to my mother in law after her admission into a home. Well, seems to be the best thing we ever did. This morining I had a meeting witth the doctor to review her meds, he asked what she had and before I could finish the word Corticobasal he blurted out "ya CBD it's obvious" I almost leaped across her bed and hugged him. FINALLY someone who knows CBD and is fully aware of the condition and it's side effects. He immediately reviewed her meds, changed up a few things and told me that the doctors know the disease but not always how to treat the mental part of it. Now, we have the finest team of specialists in Canada BUT this guy put my mind at lease completely....WOW
On to Laura my mother in law, I walked into the breakfast area and she was calmly eating breakfast, no complaints or fits of anxiety. She calmly told me she had to go to the bathroom, AND WAITED hald an hour until the nurses finished tending the other residents. She then told me 'those people need help more than me'...I thought I would fall over. You see usually, my mother in law expects to be tended to the second she asks for help, in the past 3 days she is realizing that there are poeple there that need help more than her.
She took a nap and was snoring away for about an hour, this never happened before. She woke up alert and ready for her morning stroll with her carer. I kissed her goodbye and off I went.
She is not registered for physio, arts and crafts and weekly communion. I had anxiety myself when we placed her, but know I am realizing that this was the best decission.
