My mom's doctor just emailed me telling me about her acute gout and getting xray but then also tells me she's been near impossible the last 3 days. She is refusing to take medications, accept her insulin, and probably just over all belligerent since he said the nurses are getting to the end of their rope. I'm not sure a phone call is going to be of any help as all she wants to do is leave the NH but dementia and health issues obviously are why she cannot. I hope they don't kick her out, can they?? I live in another country and there is no one there to take care of her! I'm in the midst of liquidating her assets, spending down, and getting her on Medicaid.
I dread calling, I'm dreading my next visit coming up next week because I'm the "jerk" putting or keeping her in there, and I'm already stressed out, now this! I just don't know what the best thing for her is, and I'm scared the NH will be fed up with her.
