Mom's update

Hi, I know I haven't been on a lot, but things are so messed up right now. A week ago yesterday, mom fell and hit her head~ again. This time she stayed in the hospital until they could get her in the NH there, but the "state inspection" said no more people till they get a few things fixed, and who knows when they will come and inspect it again. (they claim to have the few things fixed now)

Well, the hospital staff could not handle her 24/7. She got so upset and confused. Had one of her "fits". Apparently her pill either didn't work, or she didn't take it, she was getting to where she would hide them and nobody noticed.

So now she is in a mental instatute for evaluation. See what meds will and wont work on her. I wasn't able to go with my dad and husband for that because I had the flu so bad, so I don't know what it is like. But they said it wasn't a bad place for what it is for. She wont be there long, 2 wks at the most, then we need to hope that we can get her in this NH here. Other than that, I think they have one there too, but that is an hour away and I don't know the area at all. Here she would only be 3 blocks away.

I sure do miss her tho, when I am sick like this, there is nobody else in the world like my mom, she took real good care of you... but i miss her.. :(

I am sending good thoughts your way, Marjie, I hope things will get sorted out and she will be where it is best for her.
Hang in there -

RE: Mom's update

Sunflowers and good thoughts for you and your family on the way. A specialiced facility is most likely better able to find the right medication than a general hopital.
Hope the NH in your neighbohood will be inspected soon.

RE: Mom's update

Nursing homes can come in many types, be sure to check all aspects so the care is adequate. Being three blocks away is a good thing as you can check on her often. Good thoughts coming your way.

Oh, it seems you have a very stressful situation at this time, but it also seems that you are doing everything to make it better, for all of you.
I was touched by:

And now, you are taking good care of her.
