Mother is not interested in any sort of restorative physical therapy. Consequently, she is getting harder and harder to assist in getting around outside her wheelchair.

I have become her daily cheerleader.

I work with a physical therapist in encouraging mother to cooperate and participate in simple walking steps with her walker and mild leg exercises. Yesterday she became so agitated with me she stated," I did not make you do these things. This is a terrible way to treat someone."

Not giving up. She would not have given up on me either.

I've just read through your blog. So sensitively and honestly written.
My tears fell as I was reading.
