Re: My Mother is Back in the Hospital

Transportation has been worked out for now.
She is doing a little better now, but still is not ready to go home.
Medicare covers 28 days at the Caretel Inns, and she has only been there for one week now. Hopefully she can be home by Thanksgiving.

I just got a call from the Caretel Inn. She is being transferred back to the hospital, as her blood pressure has become really low and she is lethargic. She's going to need some more prayers.

Re: My Mother is Back in the Hospital

After she was transferred to the hospital, her blood pressure, oxygen levels and everything else seemed normal. They took some blood tests, and after a few hours, found nothing wrong. They took her off of her blood pressure medication and released her back to The Caretel Inns. She seems fine now. The nurse told me she was fine in the morning, but when they did their noon checks, she was lethargic and her blood pressure was low, so they sent her to the hospital as a precaution.
Everything looks good now.
Thank you for your continuing prayers.

Sounds like the "normal?" ups & downs of dialysis life. Praying she'll continue to improve.
Hang in there, it becomes more manageable w/time.

Re: My Mother is Back in the Hospital

She is still experiencing ups and downs. She usually feels nauseous during dialysis. She is being released from rehab care, but my brother and I have decided she is not ready to go home yet, and have paid for at least one extra week in a different area of the Caretel Inn, where they have assisted living for long term care. I'm not sure how long she will stay there. She has enough money in life insurance from my father's passing 2 and a half years ago to stay there for 2 years. ($153/day.)

She was fine on Thursday, but once again threw up during dialysis.
One of the nurses said that some people take awhile getting used to dialysis. She started it 5 weeks ago.
Today (11/24/18) she is being moved to a private room in a different section of the Caretel Inns, until we feel she is ready to go home.

Jeff I am saying prayers for her and your family. It is tough to watch a parent be ill and you feel so helpless. Please keep us posted.

Re: My Mother is Back in the Hospital

My mother had another episode of low blood pressure and passed out after seeing her kidney doctor today. She was taken to the emergency room, like two weeks ago.
She was unresponsive, and was disoriented when she woke up.
She is now at the emergency room, her blood pressure is going back up, and she is coherent again.
They are going to keep her overnight hooked up to a heart monitor.
Thank you for your continuing prayers.

She is resting in the Heart Telemetry Unit, where she spent to weeks in October.
They are keeping her here overnight to observe her heartbeat and try to figure out what caused her episode today.
She will do tomorrow's dialysis here at the hospital.
