You gotta work really hard to be an advocate for your loved ones when they are in hospital.  The staff is well intentioned, but so much of the health care system is stacked against patients, where they apply cookie-cutter treatments as often as they can.

:rotflmao: he calls it trouble..........i was concerned about her diet since i see her more. eating pudding and jello dont cut it for keeping your stamina and strength up. and  i was simply pointing that out while she is in a place that can help her. and i stressed that to the staff there she needs to be kept being told to eat better!!!!!

she did tell me she had 3 nurses that were really good to her!!!!!!!

well i spent another good portion of the day in ER again. kinda sad when you start getting to know the same doctors and nurses there!!!!! :pouty:

apparently mom called at 12 30 last night never heard the phone. went up to her house and needed to get the extra key to get in. long story short i ended up calling 911.  she was taken by ambulance to ER.

she is in an ICU unit. after i got home got a call from the ICU doctor. he isnt very confident with all the things working against her she will come out of this!!!!!

Was 10 years ago I lost my Mom. Was a crappy year, full of ups & downs, with false promises of hope only to be dashed in the end. 2023 has contained a lot of parallels. Wish only the best for you and your Mom glenn.

Thanks guys means a lot to me. Brother is coming back from Wisconsin today to. All the kids know. Guess mom told the nurses she didn't want anyone for visitors. They went anyway and seemed things turned out fine

Off to the ER soon. I need to be there when the docs come in.

Yea been kinda tough 3 years for her. Especially the last 6 months. They said she has caricanoma cancer a really bad heart valve, not a candidate for surgery either.also has cetif infection.

She is in 4 antibiotics for the infection. I blood pressure med to keep it elevated. I watched them change the blood pressure med, it dropped like a rock

And nothing they can do for the real problems.

with regrets i am telling you that Mom"s 3 year battle is over. she passed away this morning about 5;05 am. it was a long tough 24 hours watching her be non responsive and struggling. we made most if not all the arraingements with the funeral home this morning.  tomorrow brother and i are going to try and make some sense of everything else.  kinda mind boggling.  :doofus: :crazy:
