This blog is an attempt to memorialize our parents and right the wrongs done to them, and hopefully, by making readers aware of what can happen, we can protect other elderly parents who could fall victim to their own family members.

The voice has come down from on high. Dr. in Dayton that we all like says mother has severe arthritis and severe nerve damage in the lower spine..miracle there is no pain involved. Too old to atempt surgery. Plus the neuropathy in the legs, of course. No turning to the left or right. No reaching up or down. If she concentrates on a low center of gravity, she can walk from here to there without pitching over. Reality is, she needs to start using a walker but mentally may not be there yet. Therapy and exercise will hopefully keep up the muscle strength. Nothing else to do... Good news is that vital organs are okay and she has no brain disease...MS or Parkinsons. She had eye surgery this last year so can see better than ever.
