We've had several trying weeks lately. My mother had to have her upper teeth removed in 3 different surgeries, 2 within the past month, using caines instead of sedation and this last one has been very hard on her. She had her first known UTI about 8 weeks ago and has another now. We discovered she had the UTI because she started complaining of her heart racing, pounding loudly and her chest feeling "uncomfortable", so I called 911 and she spend 2 days and 1 night in the hospital. (Her heart is fine, but the attending physician made significant changes to her HBP meds.) The doctor gave her ciprofloxacin 500mg that I have to break in two and give her twice a day for the UTI. I forgot to give her one half last night and even though she got one this morning, it's been a difficult day. My mom is weak, trembling, confused, argumentative and then anxious and excessively apologetic. We really got into it a couple of days ago, but apologized to each other within the hour. We saw her neurologist yesterday and he didn't even want to discuss her progression because of the UTI. We see her MD on Monday, but by then she will be off the antibiotics. She just got into a panic because her phone rang and before I could get to her she'd answered it (probably from sleeping) and then started rambling about how she couldn't call back the lady who called her because dialing 85 didn't work. I asked her who told her to dial 85 and she said, the lady at 85, and well, round and round we went. It took 30 minutes to get her to calm down, but I think I finally got her to realize she was probably dreaming. She hasn't had many vivid dreams since going on quetiapine.
Is this what we can expect with UTI? I'm worried because she has fecal incontinence and obviously not keeping herself as clean as she claims she is.
