Mom is going home from hospital today.
She has been in hospital for 6 days but her blood work continues to improve and her chest x-ray looks good. She will be going home with antibiotics, oxygen and steroids and the doctor prescribed a new muscle relaxer (zanaflex) to help with her tremors. We are also getting a Hoyer lift delivered to the house to help since she hasn't been able to help us much physically. My sister asked about Mom going to a rehab facility but Doctor said Mom's mental health would not be good if she goes. Home is the best place for her. We have caregivers that come every day so I can continue to work and I am going to hire an agency to come in 4 hours a day, overlapping with both caregivers, to let them learn the routine and Mom and then possibly hire them for some weekends in order to give me a break.
