Stronger Every Day

I spoke with Mom's nurse today and she said that Mom is doing much, much better. They have diagnosed her with a UTI and they also want to do some x-rays to determine why she is in pain. She is still anxious and aggressive, verbally, when they try to care for her, but she is a lot more accepting and today the nurse said she even gave her a kiss on the cheek. I'm so relieved that she is receiving good care and that they are getting to the bottom of her issues. I miss her so much though, and her kitty is lost without her. I'm going to see her tonight after work and I can't wait. Thanks everyone for your thoughts and prayers.

I'm glad to hear Mom is settling in and growing accustomed to help from others. It feels like the right place for her right now - get those meds right, clear up the UTI and find her source of pain. Good job, Robyn.

I'm glad you were able to get some rest. That makes a big difference. Those UTIs really do a number on the elderly. Be sure to keep an eye out for yeast infection due to use of antibiotics for UTI. Anytime mom is on antibiotics her dr. puts her on meds for yeast infection automaticly.
