All of these are very important for our well being. As i continue on my little-sleep regime i was asking myself which one to focus on "first". My mom has been going thru such a difficult time with not being able to sleep due to coughing, not feeling well enuf to eat, and being too weak to walk and what i've witnessed is that when she gets to sleep, she then feels more like eating. When she sleeps and eats, she feels more like moving.

SO, if my "findings" are the norm, sleep is first. But, exercise helps sleep! It's a vicious cycle!!! :roll: The problem is finding a way to get good sleep. :? For those with a cough, a pain, or whatever - you almost need a hospital strength tranquilizer. For those with old-fashioned insomnia - nothing seems to work. :cry:

Just rattling off some tho'ts cuz i'm TIRED! So thankful i don't have a real job!

So sorry, Sis. The sad fact is, we can't fix everything - nor can modern medicine. If the docs will prescribe her a tranquilizer, that might be a help.

My Grandmother was forced to walk by physical therapists on the day she died. My Mother was taken to physical therapy the day before she died. I WISH that the modern medical folks would realize that they cannot induce immortality by exercise.

I hope you & your Mom's docs are able to find a way to make her more comfortable. She's (and you're) in our prayers here every night.
