Department of Licensing ~ Countdown
Recall the letter from the Department of Licensing my mother received in late April. The letter giving her 60 days to have a doctor sign on the bottom line that mom is OK to drive. When she received the letter, she and I had a couple of conversations where I encouraged her to simply make an appointment with the doc and get it signed. At that time she was in the middle of deciding to change doctors, believing her GP of many decades was in collusion with the neurologist who made the, obviously ridiculous diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. Mom saw a new doctor upon feeling light headed for a number of days. I asked her about the appointment, completely forgetting about the letter from the state, as I was far more concerned about my mom needing to take naps mid-day, and feeling, as she put it, spun out. Mom said the new doc spent the entire visit encouraging her to attend grief counseling. Not bad advice. I asked mom what the doc said about her light headedness. Mom said it never really came up.
