Pampered Chef: Prayer request for my Mom

    Just thought I ask for a few prayers for my Mom tonight.

    She was not feeling well last night, but didn't want to go to the ER.
    She lives with us, has her own little apt in our home. When I check on her to go to bed, she was with it mentally and I wasn't that worried.
    This morning I checked on her around 7am and she was still sleeping. I took a shower etc... went again to check on her, she was up and out of it. She though my SIL came to visit her (it was 10am by the way). She asked me when I got home, I never went anywhere and she went to the bathroom with out pulling done her underwear! She is NEVER is like this.

    So I had the ambulance take her to the hosptial, my DH and I followed.
    They have run blood work and are doing a culture on that and her urine. She maybe septic or have another blood clot like she had in Nov'08. They are really not sure at this point and are starting her on heavy antibotics.
    She was better mentally as the day went on, then tonight she was out of it again, cold chills (not much of a fever) and trying to get out of the bed thinking she was home!
    I had the nurses but the bed alarm on before I left and gave them my number to call me with any changes.

    It is very hard when your parent (who you always count on) gets sick and is not themselves. Mom is 77 years old by the way. It is very upsetting to see them like this.
    My sister wants to move her our of my home and into a nursing home or assisting living, not sure what Mom will think about that!

    Just pray that she get better and gets her wits back about her.

    HI everyone!

    I just went to see her and I am going back in a little while.
    She was much better this morning. She is still a little weak, but they got her up and walking with her walker this morning and she is sitting in a recliner chair and out of bed.
    They are still not sure what is going on with her, she had a fever last night. Blood test will be back in tomorrow sometime I hope.
    She still isn't very hungry.
    Hope and pray the fever doesn't come back tonight!

    Thanks for all of your prayers, keep them coming!

    thank you everyone for your prayers!

    Mom came home yesterday!! She is doing pretty good, a little weak, but not as weak as it was the last time this happened to her. When it happened before we had to put her in a rehab facility for a couple of weeks to build her strength up. so at least we didn't need to do that this time.
    They increased her O2, and the Dr finally said she could have a rapid oxygen tank the small ones you can take to a store, makes it much easier on her.
    They had pretty much taken her off the O2 to only at night, but her O2 percentage was in the 80% after walking etc....with out it in the hospital.

    So, thank you for all your good thoughts and prayers and keeping praying that her strength returns to normal!
