My mom is in the hospital. She has congestive heart failure, pneumonia, bronchitis, diabetes, shingles and high blood pressure. They rushed her from her doctor appointment to a hospital an hour away.
Her oxygen levels were at an astounding 63. They dont like it if it drops below 94 percent. The doctor and nurses were freaked out. The rest of us too.
It is fear pure and simple to have your loved one’s life in someone else’s hands. It is also a whole lot of faith in their skills, professionalism, and knowledge.
So , now it is a series of tests. Trying to get mom stabilized and following though with treatments to help her. I am terrified for mom…and my dad…they have both been going through so much healthwise. They feel like they are putting everyone out. We (girls) just keep reminding them that is what families do. They have been there for us all of our lives.
I need to get going. I hate being so far away.
