A Caregiver’s Story…. Fluid or Fat?

I took a peek at mom’s daily record of weight and blood pressure. With moms health issues it’s important for her to know what her weight is.  A pound (or more) added or lost within 24 hours is fluid. A pound of fluid for mom can be the difference between breathing well or having difficulty.

Even so, mom has lost another pound.  Mom is happy about the weight loss, and the losses overall have been in weekly one pound increments which is a healthy speed of loss.  But still, it concerns me because she eats and has a healthy appetite.

I will continue to monitor her scale record and see how it goes.  No need to sound alarms just yet.
