Pneumonia and other issues
Wednesday, April 11, 2012
It all started two weeks ago when my mom fell at 10 at night into a glass lamp. I took her to the ER where she got 7 stitches and was released about 4 a.m. Obviously, she couldn't go to her apartment, so she came home to with me. II noticed shortness in breathe with me, but being asthmatic I ignored it. Friday I took mom to her primary care doctor. another 15 hours waiting in an ER for her to be admitted! Again, caring for my mom I ignored my sharp chest pains.
Sunday morning I woke with a 102 fever. My turn in the ER! I ended up on the same wing first floor with my mom on the 2nd floor. It was God's way of telling me I could do nothing more for my mom. I'm still on antibiotics. My doctor check up is Friday.
Mom's still in the hospital. Rehab wing. She's just been told she needs 24/7 care. She's distraught. Today my brother and I will meet to see if we can console her.
