My mother has been in the hospital since Monday night. She was very confused and vomiting. Turns out she has a bladder infection.
Unfortunately the location is making her agitated and they have been keeping her medicated. I talked to the doctor about it as did my brother and they were going to give her less today.
Yesterday her coloring was much better. The dr said she'd probably go home this weekend.
I am exhausted. The first night we were in the ER until midnight. I feel like I am still catching up. Last night hubby was out and I didn't even hear him come home.
I decided to work from home today so I can have an easier day.

    Hi Diane,

I'm sorry to hear about your Mom's situation. It's good you and your brother are staying on top of the situation. I know how exhausting that can be for you too. Working from home is a great benefit! I'm so glad you are able to do that.

Hang in there, my friend.

    Be sure to take good care of yourself. A little pampering would be nice. Someone has to take care of the caregiver and that someone is you! emoticon

    Really sorry to hear that! I understand how physically and psychologically exhausted you can be, and I hope you can rest this weekend even if your Mom comes back.

Can you work from home tomorrow as well, instead of commuting?

    I am so sorry. That is what happened with my mother the first time she went in last year. She had a bladder infection. I hope all goes well.

    I am so very sorry to hear this. How absolutely exhausting for all involved. Great call to work from home. I hope you get some rest.

Crazy thing is that I was thinking this morning that maybe I just need a break. And I have not been through a tenth of what you have this week. Sometimes we just need to give ourselves a break though. I think now might be your ... if at all possible. Gotta take it when you can. If not today, maybe tomorrow.
