    decline in motor skills, memory

    Oh No

    Two months after chemo ended, my mother began losing her ability to walk. She was able to take a few steps before getting winded or losing her balance. It is now to the point where she can not stand without assistance, and she is not able to walk, hold an eating utensil or eat solid foods.
