Update on the Folks.......

Well the folks are coming in 2 1/2 days, and i have alot of mixed emotions about the whole thing.
Now i decided that i was going to be optimistic about the whole thing. i am going to have my parents living with me, which many people have said is vety difficult. and add to the mix, one is very sick and weak.
My mom is down to 102 lbs. down 40+ lbs. and very weak. In fact while i'm writing this, she is at the dr's office with an IV for dehydration and low pottassium. I am hoping she will feel better after the IV therapy.
I talked to her yesterday and i did tell her that i have the protein shakes from Herba Life that i am going to have her drink. That will give her protein and energy. I will add fruit and she will LOVE it. (I hope) I told her she is my project, and she will be feeling good before she knows it. (hows that for optimism!!)
I also brought the walker and cane up from the basement.
Dad said she fell at home b/c she is so weak so i figured she can use them.
Sigh...........this will be a challenge. But i am up for it.
Wish me luck and all prayers are accepted :)
