My mother is now sitting in a chair or wheelchair or is lying in bed on her back about 98% of her day. She stands only to transfer.
Yesterday morning she had soiled herself in bed and during cleanup, I noticed that her buttocks are a deep purple. It looks jut like postmortem lividity. Later in the day, she was in her recliner and she had drawn her knees up in an attempt to take the pressure off of her buttocks and, upon my suggestion, took a very short walk (maybe 7 feet) which demonstrates that she must have been in pain because she never walks voluntarily.
I this, as I suspect, blood pooling due to inactivity or is it an indication of something else?
