Thought I might provide you with an update. My mother is now home from hospital so I went up to see her. She was really pleased to see me and was so much brighter than when I last saw her which was great. For a start she recognised me this time! However, she is on a lot of meds which still make her disorientated from time to time, especially straight after taking them. This distresses her a bit so we looked them up and found she was on one or two that didn't seem to make sense so I noted them and told her to make sure she asked the doctor about them.
The thing that bothers me is that other than dose her up they seem to have done very little to help her and she certainly can't remain on the meds forever as she is very immobile and they affect her too much. I had a word with my father and apparently she is seeing someone this week (he thought they were from physiotherapy) so we'll see what happens next.
I took her some flowers and she told me she was glad to be home because she couldn't sleep properly in hospital. and she hated the food. We had to laugh as apparently when she was first admitted to hospital the doctor asked her if she knew where she was and she said 'Great Britain'!.. well, he didn't ask her to be specific! Anyway, I was glad to see that she was more herself.
Thanks to all of you who have popped by and left supportive comments. They are very much appreciated along with all your positive thoughts and prayers. Esecially as I'm not so good myself right now. Thank you.
