@jenniferhunter First of all I am so sorry about your parents passing. I also feel bad for you because your dad put you in an almost impossible position while you were dealing with such pain in your own body.
My mom had been sick for a couple of years but not to the point that my step dad needed my help.
She could still walk, at times with the use of a Cain, bathe and do a little bit, not much around the house.
She went to our local hospital on Tuesday, July 10th because she hadn’t slept at all the night before because of stomach pain. She passed that Friday, the 13th of July from intestinal ischemia.
By time the diagnosis was made it was too late.
Now I think that God took her before I started with this pain. She couldn’t stand what the RA was doing to me. Now with the neuropathy and neck pain I am pretty miserable.
I am hopeful that the neurologist can help me.
