Last week, around Thursday or Friday
I hadn't heard from my Mom so I
texted my son, Adam to go by and check on her.
Apparently sometime around Friday morning
she had gone into some sort of 'fog',
and was displaying some symptoms of some sort of issue.
My son's girlfriend's mother, Martha (a good friend!),
and our Pastor's wife,
stopped by to check on her as well.
I found out that she had answered the door in the nude
more than one occasion :-(
Her apartment was a shambles,
with garbage everywhere,
and other signs of neglect.
They called me to ask if they had permission
to take her to the ER,
which I responded YES!
Turns out she has, and has had, A-Fib.
Her heart rate was over 160 bpm,
and on top of that she had
Congestive Heart Failure.
Her oxygen level was such that
her brain wasn't functioning properly!
I think she was ignoring the symptoms
of edema, fogginess, and a racing heart :-(
I caught the earliest plane out on Monday!
While she was in the hospital getting better,
I got her apartment in order,
got it organized better,
and visited her in the hospital.
She came home yesterday on new meds.
I still don't think she should be by herself here,
she seems a little foggy still :-)
I plan on getting hold of Meals on Wheels,
to get her eating better as well.
I'll be helping her to get to doctor visits this week,
and seeing if there's more we're going to have to do.
One plus of being here is seeing my son too :-)
We went to lunch the other day..
Poor George got left behind again to continue working.
He's doing much better, however.
today's his birthday!!
Happy birthday, babe!
Be home soon as I can :-)
