Recently Granny and Papaw moved in with Mom. I offered to help with shuttle service to doctor appointments and general errands, especially as they get settled into and learn a new area. Here is just one of the adventures that has resulted:
Mom asked if I would go in with the Grands for the initial meeting with the new primary care physician. As she put it, "since Papaw can't hear and Granny can't remember." I wasn't sure that was entirely necessary...at first. But just completing the new patient paperwork in the reception area proved to be an adventure. One conversation went like this:
Me: (Looking it over) - Granny, you missed the part about current ailments.
Granny: I did not. I read over it.
Me: But you didn't check the box for high cholesterol. You have high cholesterol.
Granny: I do not! I take medicine so it isn't high!
