I haven’t been posting because taking care of my Mom and trying to keep up with everything else has put my blogging on the back burner. I hate it. I have always looked so forward to reading all my favorite blogs, and keeping up with everyone, but I can’t find the time now. I miss you all.
Now, to catch you up on what has been happening.
My Mom was put back in the hospital a week ago today because her incision from her surgery opened up. The surgeon took cultures and there was no infection. Today however, the incision started bleeding and oozing. Back on antibiotics.
Yesterday she was in of pain when she peed. She has had a catheter for four weeks, and we suspect a UTI. We get results tomorrow. The catheter is out.
After some loud bitching and a lot of finger-pointing, I insisted that a cat scan be done on her stomach. She was very constipated from the narcotics, and hadn’t had a BM in 6 days. Everyone kept saying that when she pooped she would feel better. I had the GP call my Gastro guy in for a consult. Well, she had a bowel obstruction. I wanted to say “I told you it wasn’t constipation you Knuckheads!’ ‘But I didn’t. The doc helped her through that problem….you don’t want to know how.
The combo of some of her meds was making her very confused. Why don’t doctors check stuff like? My pharmacist does…ya think a doctor would.
I am seriously behind in my laundry. My house is a wreck. I don’t care.
