Some of you know me from the old tbd. I have talked about my sister's illness' in the past. She has MS and Parkinson's. Now they've found she has a rare degenerative disc disease. She has 9 disc in her spine that are really dissolving.
She now spends most of her time on a special board,not able to move for fear she could move wrong and become paralyzed.
She gets Medicare, but, and this is not new to the system, it has to be changed, she "makes" too much money from her disability to qualify for fulltime care at home. She cannot afford it herself and they want her in assistant living,which she cannot afford and does not want to go.
We now live in a condo complex,on the top floor. So, I don't know if the answer would be here. Especially since my husband works out of the house.
All my siblings are having health and/or $$ issues. This is very hard. I am going to see her this week. I planned last week,but my youngest daughter is pregnant and had started labor too early,they were able to stop it.
Having seen all she's already been through, it breaks my heart. There may be a non surgical procedure they can do.
If not,this does not mean she won't be able to walk(she hardly can now) It means her becoming paralyzed.
I just ask for positive thoughts and prayers.Thanks
