I know some have gone through this so I need a little help. My mother who is 66 was diagnosed with dementia. We are hopefully are early on and she is just about to start medications to slow it down. We were told two years ago this may be coming then she got what I think now is bad advice and some docs were just like “we will just watch it”, so we never started meds. Now she has my dad who is healthy so I am greatful for that, but I am very close to my mom and can’t stop worrying. My daughters are 5 and spend lots of time with her and so I am so scared of telling them one day soon their gma is sick and will not get better. I don’t know how many good years we have left, hopefully several but I just don’t know, but I can’t stop worrying. I want to create good memories over the next year or two but I am obsessively worrying.
To make matters worse she got the dreaded post mammogram letter and has to go back for further testing. She had breast cancer 16 years ago and stays up on her check ups but this has us worried even more.
Prayers and advice would be greatly appreciated.
