Re: My Mother is Back in the Hospital

I forgot to update everyone on her angiogram. Not enough blockage was found for her to need another angioplasty. (In the last 19 years, she has had 3 stents put in her heart, one in her leg, and artificial valve replacement surgery in 2014.)

She got sick at the end of dialysis today, so she is still trying to get used to it. She has been going to dialysis for about 10 weeks now.

I'm not sure how much longer she will be staying in the skilled nursing section (Coventry House) at the Caretel Inns. She'll be in the Coventry House until sometime in early January, so she won't be home for Christmas, but at least she is still with us, so that's a blessing.

Thank you for your continuing prayers.

Re: My Mother is Back in the Hospital

Yesterday she was moved out of the Skilled Nursing section (Coventry House) back to the room she had at the Arlington House (assisted living) at the Caretel Inns of Lakeland in St. Joseph.
She has been taking Zofran before dialysis, which has helped with her nausea. After dialysis, she is now keeping food down more than she was before.
I'm hoping she'll get a little more strength in her legs and arms so she can at least get around in a walker.
Now that she is out of skilled nursing, she is no longer receiving medicare-covered therapy. My brother (who works at night) has her get out of her wheelchair and take short walks to get her some exercise.

Thank you for your continuing prayers.
