Grandma's bladder infection on 4th of July
Grandma had blood in urine??? Wrong.She actually fell and cut her head.I took her to E.R. they admitted her for 1 day and sent her home.She said she had a pain in her hip on Monday,and started walking very slow.She doesn't feel pain at all.Or complain about pain.So we went to urgent care and took exrays,but couldn't find anything . She's Getting worse,so took her to family doctor,but didn't get anything but take 2 Tylenol for pain till she reads results of exrays.Grandma has bad time using walker,and started refuses to keep her nightlight plugged in her room at night. We think she could have cracked a hip,or bruised her hip,but she doesn't want to do what her doctor wants her to do.Help!!! By the way thanks for all your help earlier with the blood in her urine scare.I wish that was all it was.Now I have to start really thinking seriously about in home health aid or nursing homes.Trouble is I made her a promise to keep her in her home as long as possible.Its been hard because she's a hoarder and won't get rid of anything.I am the same way.Man,I really didn't know what I was getting myself into when I became her caregiver.I am starting to drown here and I don't even know how to swim.I am glad to find this site maybe someone can point out some ways to cope with the hard days that are comming??? Thank You All For Your help and great advice.
