I'm the Elder Gay with the 92-year-old mother. Any hints for aging?

She goes to the nephrologist every 3 months and I eagle eye her blood tests. I also take her to her Cardiologist, her Orthopedist, her PCP and coordinate all her blood work. After ten years, I have found some odd little things.

Drop dead at 75.

For instance, she started to get bone pains and gut pains for no reason. Chronic #3 pains that debilitated her. She also developed pink EYELIDS. Researching the blood work, using the overtime option, it appears she developed excess PHOSPHORUS. Searching the internet showed that excess phosphorus could lead to joint and bone pain and vitamin D deficiency. The solution was TUMS. Calcium carbonate to bind the phosphorus in her food. Both pains went away, and her phosphorus dropped on the next blood tests. Who knew. Anybody else have odd advice?
