She loves to knit and crochet, and can do it for hours on end. I really don't care for things made out of yarn, but I fuss over them anyway. I do appreciate her talents and hard work. She does not like tv or news of any kind. It has been over a week since I have seen anything. Its not that I watch that much tv, but I d...

They would only pay for 3 days in the hospital, so they discharged Mom yesterday, even though she could not walk to the bathroom, clean or dress herself, sit up for more than 30 minutes, and had not had a bowel movement. ARRGGGHHH! Not to mention, on Sunday you can't find any kind of an advocate ... Mon, 27 Feb 2017 13:07:29 EST Weary to the Bone http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6321103 Been a tough day. Mom is refusing any pain meds and refusing to eat. The endocrinologist is concerned at how low her sodium levels have dropped. Someone comes in to check on her every 15 minutes, so I'm afraid to leave the room. She hasn't been able to answer their questions accurately. Lots more testing ordered. <BR> <BR> She kept trying to take the lid off her water cup. When I asked her why she wanted it off she told me she had to get the messages out. She couldn't get to the mes...

Mom is on the 5th floor, which is actually 6 floors up because the ground floor and the 1st floor are 2 different things. That has never made sense to me. I have amused myself today by p...
