Oh for pete's sake

Sunday, March 24, 2013

Can someone PLEASE make up their mind?! Between the weather forecasters saying everything from 40 degrees and sunny to windy, minus 10 and 4-6 inches of snow and my mother's doctors? I am about to go crazy! I talked to her last night, she was supposed to call me in the afternoon, but didn't. When I called her, she couldn't talk because they were putting a pic line in. When she finally called back, they couldn't get the line in, so they gave up. She has 3 iv lines and because her kidneys aren't working, they have put her on total bedrest. She was po'd when they were getting her up to walk, now she's mad that they are making her stay in bed?! And they have cancelled her heart surgery until her kidneys are in better shape.

And she still adores the doctor that she's gone to for over 20 years that has NEVER checked her heart!?! Her cardiologist told her she's had this coronary artery disease for at LEAST 20 years!? But this "fabulous" doctor of hers has never once run a single test on her heart. This is the same man that didn't do the testing quick enough when my dad had his stroke for my dad to be treated with TPA. The same man that told us dad's stroke was "minor" he would make a full recovery. It was massive, catastrophic, and left him paralyzed, unable to talk, and bedridden until his death several years later. And for some inexplicable reason, my mother still trusts this man??

It is such a good thing I live 600v miles away. I don't deal well with being lied to. Nor am I good at tolerating idiocy.

Mom also told me that if things don't go well, she wants her little dog put to sleep and buried with her. I didn't know what to say! That has got to be one of the most selfish things I have ever heard in my life! The dog is not old or ill and there is no good reason to put it to sleep. She expects me to see that it's done. Too dang bad. I won't do it.

It's bad enough she put a perfectly healthy dog to sleep 15 years ago because she was having health issues and it was "just too hard to take care of her". Which I just found out about. I didn't say anything-I couldn't. I was too angry at the self centeredness of it.

So, now we wait-again. While her doctors decide what to do. And I am going to try to not stress over it. I'm really glad I didn't bother driving out there!

And now that it's 3:30am? I should probably get some sleep!

Have a good Sunday.

    Gah... emoticon I've been thinking of you today, but I guess your mom is not having surgery today after all! I hope she improves soon...

    Is she at least under the care of different, more competent doctors while she's in the hospital?

    Grrr. My mom had related frustrations with my grandma - she would just keep going to different doctors until she found one who told her what she wanted to hear. Sigh...

    Mostly? emoticon

    Seni - I just don't know what to say. I can't imagine what you're going through -- the roller coaster of emotions. The best thing you can do is think about yourself and your family. Try not to allow all this stress to affect you. Put it in God's hands and trust that He will pull you through.

    I'll continue to keep you all in my prayers.

    Sounds like you're definately well out of that! She's an adult, I'm sure she can cope. As for the dog, well, like you I'm speechless. Shades of Egyptian Pharos! Agree to everything to keep her happy, then rehome him later if necessary. Might be hypocritical, but that's necessary too! She's disposing of a life, not the TV.

    So try not to stress to much, you have your own life to worry about.
