Mom is 84, has congenital heart disease - she got a UTI and was acting crazy so her regular doctor sent her to the ER. Well, in her State of crazy, she checked herself out before she could be properly treated for the UTI. We finally talked her into going back to her doctor but before she got a chance she fell and hit her head. Now she was rushed to the hospital where she was given antibiotics for the uti and had catscans, and MRIs for a potential brain bleed. They sent her to another hospital with a good neurology dept who gave her more tests and determined it was not a brain bleed - just a large hematoma? I think. In any case she was finally sent to rehab and is done with the UTI meds and is still acting confused off and on. At first I thought the confusion would go away with the meds but it hasn't. She is also on oxygen right now because she is weak. Can anyone relate to this? Im so scared that this is how she will always be. Im trying to digest this thought and accept it but I don't want to believe it. I know you guys aren't doctors but do you think she will ever be herself again? Up until this fall/UTI she was on the ball for the most part. A little foggy when she first would wake up but still played scrabble etc. I'm so worried.
