Re: My Mother is Back in the Hospital

She spent today at the hospital, is is supposed to spend at least one more night hooked up to a heart monitor.
She sounds better than she has in awhile. She had dialysis at the hospital today instead of the Fresenius Kidney Center.
Her kidney doctor thinks too much fluid is being taken out during dialysis, but the nurses at Fresenius think they're not getting enough out. Unlike her dialysis treatments at the FKC, she doesn't seem as weak. I don't know if today's treatments made her nauseous. When she left the hospital before and started having dialysis at FKC, she would get nauseous during and after treatment. I think they are taking out too much fluid there.
I also think she will not take her medication for high blood pressure on dialysis days, as I understand removing fluid from your body lowers your blood pressure.

Thank you for your continuing prayers.

Re: My Mother is Back in the Hospital

My mother was released from the hospital this afternoon and is now back in her room at the Arlington House at the Caretel Inns of Lakeland in St. Joseph.
I guess she became nauseous and threw up after dinner today, the first time since Tuesday that this has happened. Could it be the food at the Caretel?
She was fine in the hospital.

Hopefully she will be strong enough to go home before Christmas.

Thank you for your continuing prayers.

Dialysis went well today, and she actually kept her dinner down for a change.
She is still not ready to go home.
Also, tomorrow is her 81st birthday.

Thank you for your continuing prayers.

She's doing quite well today. She still has trouble getting around, so she will be staying at the nursing home for at least another week.
We'll see how tomorrow's dialysis goes.

Re: My Mother is Back in the Hospital

My mother passed out in dialysis and was taken to the ER this afternoon.
She had a CT scan and is now back in the heart telemetry unit for the third time.
They will probably keep her here for a few days for observation. She is otherwise doing fine, and knows who she is and where she is, and is currently eating a sandwich and cookie.

Thank you for your continuing prayers.

Re: My Mother is Back in the Hospital

She will be in here at least one more day, as they plan on doing her dialysis here at the hospital tomorrow morning.
She is doing well, and ate well this evening.
Hopefully she gets to back to the Caretel Inns tomorrow or Thursday.
Thank you for your continuing prayers.
