Manage episode 324371356 series 3293377
In 1996, Grandpa Hill received a call, his mother was paralyzed in a hospital bed after a massive stroke. Medication prescriptions mounted, and by the time she left rehab she was on 9 different drugs.
Listen to hear how Grandpa Hill ends up taking his mother out of the rehab, and helps her to continue to live a good healthy and happy life. Mom came to stay with them in Pennsylvania. The rehab psychiatrist had prescribed purpose rather than more medication. A strong Will to Live was what Grandpa Hill’s mother needed most. Her struggles in Grandpa Hills very busy house with seven homeschooled children would keep her mind and body challenged.
Slowly and surely (one medicine at a time) they managed to mostly unmedicate Mom. Suddenly Mom takes an unexpected turn for the worse, her liver was shutting down.
