Today has been an unexpected difficult day. As I write this post from the visitor’s room on the ward I am on, in the early hours, I await for my mum to hopefully get better. I am letting you know that your comments could be late showing on my blog, as well as me replying, because of this.
There are posts planned still to air, which are already scheduled and these will still show. It’s just going to be quiet from me.
I found my mum unconscious yesterday afternoon. Thankfully I decided to call round unannounced after I could not get any response from her that morning. I wasn’t expecting to find her on her bedroom floor, unresponsive. Instead, I thought the issue was going to be her phone playing up.
She has had tests which they had results on that did not give much than possibilities to go on. One or two further tests done later, I will know tomorrow if they know anything more of those. Her breathing was supported originally and I was warned from the very beginning she wasn’t well. When they were taking her off support, because of her condition, I was basically expecting her to die, as I was told there was nothing more that could be done at that stage then to keep her comfortable. But after an hour or two off support, mum was still here and breathing and so they decided to treat her with antibiotics, in case there is an infection.
Mum definitely does not have a head injury from her fall, but she could have had a stroke, as well as the possibility of an infection. So it’s wait and see at the moment as she stays with us breathing easily hours later and through the night.
Although mum is comfortable, she is still unresponsive. I am hoping she will prove them wrong and come round.
