I adore my mother-in-law. She is 101 years-old and she is in Michigan. I miss her. I spoke to her recently and she was taking a new medication. She was not totally herself. My son visited her was on a visit to Michigan and he went to see her. He said it was a good visit. The medication is strong, but she was the grandma he knows her to be. He discovered from her son that she is being given the medication because she is inappropriate with the staff and other residents. That type of behavior is totally antithetical to who I have always known her to be.
We never know how we will become.
