I would like to hear others stories about advocating for a parent solo. When you are the primary and only caregiver for a very sick mother and am told by my own mother that she feels like she is dying and for me to call the paramedics immediately. I do what she demands and an hour later the nurse calls me to come and pick her up that she has been released, I was so frustrated and not to mention, ill myself, that I raised h--l when I got to the ER. She was spiking a 101.8 fever and had been throwing up with diarrhea. The doctor tells me that all her tests are negative but meanwhile she is as weak as a kitten and can not lift her head off of the pillow. You really have to advocate for your loved one when you know she is very sick but is putting on a brave face for the medical staff. After reexamining her, the doc finally decided to admit her for 1 or two days to run more tests. I was in tears as I left the hospital. Anyone else relate? And what was your outcome?
