My regular visitors will notice that I haven't posted in a few days. It is most remiss of me and I apologise, however my mother has been re-admitted to hospital and I am concerned.
When she was admitted a couple of weeks ago with sciatic problems they sent her home with a suitcase full of painkillers and other medication but never really did much to address the actual cause. For the last couple of weeks this has meant that my mother has been virtually bed bound as she can no longer get around as she used to and the meds make her confused. Being a diabetic compounded the problems and now it seems that she has problems with her lower legs. Apparently the doctors think it is an infection but it is not responding to IV antibiotics. Yesterday a consultant saw the state of my mothers legs on his rounds and decided to take over her case. My father tells me that he was appalled at how my mothers diabetes has been mismanaged (she has not had a consultation about it in 4 years) and that he believes getting the diabetes under control will lessen all her symptoms. I hope they help her soon as apparently her spirit is severely dampened and she is very weepy. It is very upsetting.
I am going up to see her today. Please can I call on you to send positive thoughts and prayers again? Thank you.
