Yer Thoughts Please

Ain't been round much, came home from work Thursday night an wen't ta check on my mother, she's 91. Found her in bed in a real bad way. Called 911 an got her ta the hospital.

Long time in ER, real low blood level down ta 5.6 hemoglobin. Started a transfusion an her heart rate went crazy. Thought we was gonna loose her fer sure. Gave her some medicine an finally got things calmed down. Moved her to a private room an spent the next 40 hours with her.

They gave her 4 units a blood. Found out yesterday she has a bleedin ulcer. She's feelin some better, makin lots more sense an they givin her some soft foods. She gonna have a long road ahead a her. Will be goin ta skilled care fer a bit ta get her stregnth back.

Been over this afternoon cleanin up the house, what a mess. Won't go inta details.

Were gonna make a few changes when she comes home, some skilled care at home, a home alert system an meals on wheels ta start.

I'm beat, gettin to old ta go that long without sleep.

It's hell to get old, but better than the alternative. You were a good son Hillbilly!

Re: Yer Thoughts Please

Rough time and rough time of year to deal with it all.
Ditto on the good son
Just keep doing what you know how and take it day by day
You, your Mom and family are in my prayers.
