Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it..Song of Solomon: 8:7
Mother will be released from the hospital tomorrow to go back to the Nursing Home. She is very confused ... has no memory of falling and she wonders why she is at the hospital. She feared she would have to be there for the rest of her life. This afternoon she starting choking on her food and I rushed out of the room to get help...Two nurses came to her rescue and got the situation under control...
Mom's mind is deteriorating and her dementia is getting increasingly worse. She asked me if I had seen Dennis, (my oldest brother who passed away April 6, 1973.) She said he had been to see her at the hospital....She also claimed a lady friend of hers (who had died several years ago) had been to see her... You get the picture.. .but she is my mother and I still love her. This is life and I have learned to accept what cannot be helped... I am just thankful that she is treated well at the Nursing Home and they take good care of her.
She is doing well physically from her fall considering it could have been worse but she has no concept of why she should not lean her weight on her right leg when the staff at the hospital tried to get her up and walking ( after the doctor inserted the rod in her femur bone that was fractured.)
Thank you so much Patty Gross for the generous spot light it is so appreciated!
