I am so burned out from my mother that I am ready to collapse.
We had a set back with her going to assistant living. They turned her down. So now we are taking her home & then came another setback. She has been wearing a C-pap at night for 2 months in the nursing home. She was ready to come home last Friday when they told us on Thurs that she needed a sleep study in order for the insurance to pay for the machine. Well the home gave us 3 options..1-pay 308.00 a month, take my mother & siblings to a facility where they provide the c-pap for training & pay them. (this was a 60 mile drive round).2- take her home without the c-pap. 3- leave her at the nursing home til a sleep study can be done. This was NOT caught at the hospital or the nursing home for a sleep study. As far as the hospital I agree that she did need it since she had her last rites & didn't expect her to be going back to her home. A miracle in itself. So we had a dr apt yesterday for consultation & now waiting for them to call so she can have her sleep study done. Is mom happy for the wait? Ha! of course not. She is so used to being catered to & the daughters there everyday that she expects things to happen fast because its her. She b^&tch3s about everything & I am ready to throw in the towel! We have worked so hard to make her comfortable, cleaned her house, had the rugs,furniture cleaned,keeping up her yard,but its never enough. Another worry will be the c pap when she goes home. She always says she can't get it on. We are afraid she will not wear it if she needs it after the sleep study. After all she is 92, very sharp minded so I guess she earned it???
