Although her disease has taken everything from her, she always stays positive and keeps strong. Recently, she's been struck with many different health issues at once and for the first time I truly fear for her life. She has a recurring blood clot in her upper thigh and her feet have become unusually swollen and blue. They are now sending her to a cardiologist clinic after testing her heart. Government cuts mean that she is no longer eligible for "one on one" physio sessions which concerns me greatly as she is not getting the physical activity she needs. How can I help with her circulation and preventing her symptoms for worsening and ultimately taking her life? I'm finding all the information on the internet overwhelming. Need advice on activities, diet, meds, natural therapies..etc.
ANYTHING. I've struggled to cope with my mom's illness over the years but the thought of actually losing her kills me inside and I want to do anything I can to stop it. I'm lost....
