Thanks for the advice, I will give the tea bag a try. It is also hard to eat with half of my mouth paralyzed. The last time I had this I was working and they would not give me a work release. Thank goodness this time I am retired and can take care of this at home.

I fed Shrek a lot of soup and milkshakes with bendy straws. Taking the meds he was better in about four days. Sorry this has hit you again!

RL, do you think she would be interested in learning how to "velvet" her chicken for use with all these necessaries? Forgive me, whoever posted that technique here on DC, can't credit you, but I've copied & pasted the how-to and plan to try it out soon. I've always enjoyed those moist, tender little chicken pieces when eating Chinese out. Wish I'd learned a long time ago. And she'll have a real wok to work with, thanks to Dad. Lucky girl!

Helpful hint. When I copy a recipe or technique from a DC thread I type in the member's name so I'll know who shared it with me.

The surgery was in the frontal lobe.

My neighbor next door has three daughters. A couple of times when they were in her apartment, they were screaming so lound I thought she was in danger and almost called the cops. Instead I knocked on the door and asked if every thing was all right. I asked her if she was in any danger of being hurt. It forced them to calm down.

My daughter was acting like them. I won't tolerate that behavior from anyone. No matter what their excuse is.
Drugs can alter personality. I assume she is on meds, if not, she had anesthesia and that can take some time to get out a system. Peri-menopausal rage comes to mind given her age, although the window closes around 55, she could still be suffering from that combined with the fear, the drugs, etc. Or, she just is lashing out because she thinks that this is so unfair and she's mad at the world.

Just going to putter around and eventually get the litter box cleaned. Not going to do much else, watching old Westerns on CMT.

All of the above. But I refused to be her whipping post. She treats her friends better than her family.

My age and the fact that I am her mother commands respect. My heart is breaking for her. But she has to give some too. She has a long way to go. And if she wants the support of the family, she has a hard lesson to learn. I know I sound mean, but we are all making the journey with her whether she knows it or not.

I know it sounds stupid, but I have ended every post with the angel for her. I hope that the angel doesn't come for her.
