I had another post about my mom losing it and seemingly having another stroke
Luckily we finally got her to the hospital and it turned out to be a blood infection and she's gotten much better. Only she still very weak physically to where we can't take her home yet, even the doctor said if she went home it would be against medical advice.
They want her in a rehab for at least a few weeks to help her get back on her feet and be able to go home but she's totally against it and fighting us at every turn.
Wants to go home, doesn't want to spend Christmas in a rehab, when even considering the idea she simply muttered to herself "I guess my Christmas is going to be ruined."
While I fully support and want her to go to the rehab it's hard knowing that she does have a point, I don't think anyone would want to be away from home/family during the holidays. It's taking its toll on my mental and emotional faculties.
What do people do in this situation? How do you try and reassure their parent and themselves that being stuck in a facility during Christmas is the right thing to do? I almost just want to take her home and risk it, at least if something did happen she'd be going out happy. It's even harder knowing it's a very real possibility that this will be her last Christmas with everything that's happened and how her health has declined.
I know the reality of the situation is she can't go home, we can't even lift her in her current state and she'd just be stuck in her chair/bed unless she magically got better without any medical help.
I've never had to deal with something like this because she's never been sick or had to be anywhere but home during the holidays, and I really don't know what to tell her, if anything, that can make the situation better.
