Last week was a bad week for my visit with my Mom.  The past couple weeks she was doing well with walking and this day I wheeled her out to my car and got her in then left the wheelchair there.  Well, once in my driveway she could barely walk a few steps, it was pretty bad.  She kept “sitting walking” – kind of a squat and then sitting down randomly without warning.  Luckily my Husband was home and able to help.  We both had to work hard to get her in as she would drop her body weight at random times, which is very hard on your back.  Once inside I was afraid to leave her alone at all since she was so unsteady.  Now I know to have the wheelchair every visit just in case.
