Re: DM not doing well

Mum seems to be ok - other than pain. They are keeping her in the hospital right now to evaluate if she can manage on her own at home, or needs to go to rehab

Re: DM not doing well

DM is in rehab

They aren't allowing outsiders in as a precaution. DM is unhappy about that. She also lost her cellphone, so she's not been able to contact anyone.

Re: DM not doing well



Depending on how much progress DM makes in the next couple weeks she'll either:

- if she makes some progress (but not enough to go home) she'll stay longer

- if she makes enough progress, but not enough to be independent, she'll get to go home with home health care.

- if she doesn't make any progress she'll need to go to a nursing home

Re: DM not doing well

She's not eating much, either she's worn out from PT/OT, she hurts too much, or the pain meds make her nauseated.


I dropped off her favorite soup from bread co at lunch time today. I hope she eats.

Re: DM not doing well

She's back in her home now. It's been a really long time since she was.

Re: DM not doing well

Is she happy to be at home? Does she have help?

Re: DM not doing well

She's rying to coordinate her schedule with the home health care person's schedule.

The senior apartment staff don't want to let me in (safety rules), but right now I'm the only one who is available to do mom's laundry. So....they let me grab her laundry.
