She has some kind of bowel obstruction, which may just be an infectious mass of things that should have drained. I don't know the next steps, but she is doing well. The i.v. antibiotics perked her right up.
If you pray, please say a prayer for my Mom. I spent as much time with her today as I could. I went after I saw my own doctor at the hospital. I got nice shots of cortisone in my shoulder and right knee. I'm not looking at an immediate re-do of my knee replacement. Yea! Then I worked until 3:30 and went back.
So I'm hoping they can help Mom get out of there quickly and back home.
Update 5/1: Trying from my phone, something I've never done. Mom is much better. They may send her "home" tomorrow. Home may mean rehab because she has lost her strength while here at the hospital. She needs to get back on her feet. Thank you a million times for your kind thoughts and prayers. They are working!
Update 5/4: Mom is home and gaining in strength every day. She left rehab in less than 24 hours (they were not too happy there when we said we were taking her out). Her caregivers at home are doing a better job caring for her than anyone in an institution would. All is good today.
