Medical update — 040112

A hospital stay can be a lot like a roller coaster ride – but in slow-motion. That seems to be Mom’s experience. Last night, she was having slight cognitive issues. Today, she’s back on her game. Yesterday, and again early this morning, she had long spells of chills and shaking. Tylenol and extra blankets, and all is well again. Her blood pressure was way up early today. They’ve adjusted the meds, and her BP readings normalized.

All things considered, she’d still rather not have visitors or calls.

Still to come: results of the blood and urine cultures will become known tonight or early tomorrow. If all goes as predicted, Mom will be released to her own independent living apartment on Monday or Tuesday.

I will update as new information becomes available.
