Today was a rough day for my mom and for us. She was given some medication that had pretty terrible side effects. Then, she had to be given antipsychotic medication, to calm her down, after watching the news on the t.v. in her hospital room. It was really hard to see a capable, independent person completely change before my eyes. As the steroids are finally eased out of her body, I'm hoping that she'll be more like herself. In the meantime, I took a short drive up the peninsula to my brother's house. We went over to the coast and had some lunch, before returning back to the hospital. It definitely helped to clear my head. Towards evening, my mom was able to eat her dinner, and to brush her teeth. She seemed more calm and relaxed when I finally left to drive home.
