On Thursday I took Mom for her regular cardiologist appointment. She got a good report and doesn't have to go back for 6 months. Her heart beat had a fairly good rhythm and her pulse and blood pressure were good. I am so thankful for that. On the other hand, she has really deteriorated mentally and she now walks like a little old lady with her cane. Of course, it is my brother and I who insists that she use the cane because of her tendency to fall. Her mind is nowhere near as sharp as it used to be and this has just happened since her bypass surgery. Her mind was her greatest asset. She was very smart. She still does her crossword puzzle every day, but it takes much longer and she doesn't always get them all filled in.
