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.

I have talked to daddy several times, trying to get him to drink water. Mother thinks he threw up this a.m. I think he is getting dehydrated. He says he never was one much for water and that is that. I am sending mother a copy of the e-mail I sent you regarding the wrong blood pressure meds...I am not sending her the pages and pages and pages I am sending you. If you will go over them with her -- I am going to start working on her regarding showing this information to her Dr. and asking for a change. The book says that coming off the calcium blocker must be monitored by a Dr... Enjoy your trip..I will talk to you then. Love. ---mwrote: > Hi. Thanks for e-mail and call.
