On June 15 Mom was admitted to a hospital about 2 1/2 hours away. They were the only ones that would take an Alzheimer's patient that was aggressive. I have been on the phone or driving there quite often since trying to get updates on her. But they wouldn't tell me much because she was in a hospital in Tennessee that doesn't acknowledge our guardianship of her from Kentucky. for the last two weeks they kept telling us that she would be going home some. Then last weekend my sister and Uncle went to see her and they told them that she would be going home early that following week. But every time I called they said tomorrow.. tomorrow..tomorrow.so then they finally said that she could go home on Thursday but on Thursday when I called they said tomorrow. After asking the right questions we got to pick her up Thursday! But when we got her, we noticed her feet were really swollen. So on Friday I took her to the doctor. She was having a reaction to her medication. they changed the medication and feet look better. but she started throwing up and having diarrhea Friday evening and Saturday so I called Doctor and they thought it was the flu. She threw up a few times this morning and fell and cut her arm (not bad enough for stitches).
The Thursday we picked Mom up was my birthday. Though I have been so stress it wasn't that great. Oh well just another drama day in my life.
I am off to pick up stuff for Mom and go back there today.
