Thanks for your input just thinking...interesting story about your mother-inlaw...we do find that there are times when mom is more "with it" and it may have to do in part with the amount of water she is consuming.
She usually drinks plenty but now that I think of it she hasn't wanted to drink as much lately. So now we are encouraging her to drink more water. I thought this morning that her feet did appear less swollen, but that didn't last too long...so we'll continue and see how it goes.
It's funny she always liked her water cold and if you would give her water that wasn't cold she'd say "that tastes like shit" lol. However if you gave her a glass of cold water she'd look at you and say "oh...that is soooooo gooood". It's the way she says it...you'd think it was the best thing in the whole wide world.
I love all these little memories we have made these last years. It's not been easy but healing.
