No News Really

Mom is still anxious and having some angry outbursts. I haven't talked to the doctor so I don't know what the results are of the x-rays. I chalk up the anger and anxiety to a change in nurses. Last night when I saw her she seemed to be sedated. Usually her face will light up when she sees me but last night she was so flat emotionally.

They are using a lift to get her out of bed and into her wheelchair. It seems to fit fine in her tiny little room at the hospital. I'm still worried about her being able to go from hospital to memory care. After the whole denial from the last place I'm just gun shy.

My sister will be here tomorrow and together we will get some answers from her doctors. The nurse seemed to think that Mom would be there 'for a while'. I'm not sure what how long 'for a while' is. The social worker had said 12-15 days initially when I talked to her. I guess it all depends on whether they can get her 'under control'. God this is painful. I miss her so much. I want my Mom back with me.

(((Hugs))) I've found that when it gets to a point where I don't think I can deal with another thing... something happens and in it's way things will get better or at least I'll be able to get a better grip on the situation. It may not be the solution we ask for... but it is what is intended for our loved one.

I'm really glad your sister is there. Tackling this, making all these decisions, taking it all in - all by yourself - is much too much. Hang in there. You are doing the best you can in a really difficult situation.
