Not sure how well the pacemaker/defibrillator is working for my MIL but her memory is still slipping away.
I took Jill over today so she could give her mom a shower while her dad went to do some shopping and I helped get her mom in the bathroom and left.
A while later once done with her bath her mom got confused, scared and started crying so I wound up going in there to get her out of the tub.......... well ya gotta do what ya gotta do so she is not in a nursing home being neglected or mistreated. she calmed right down for me as I helped her out of the tub.
I think she felt safer with me because Jill was trying to help her out by holding her hand where I wrapped my arms around her and lifted her up from the shower chair and maneuvered her out of the tub.
