Every time my mom falls, sneezes, vomits, coughs, or stumbles, her memory care facility packs her off in an ambulance and calls me to go retrieve her. Nine times out of ten, it's a minor illness or injury that you wouldn't even see a doctor for and it always seems to be at night. They never admit her, nor do they ever prescribe meds. During the whole time she's in the ER, she demands to pee every 10 minutes, flirts with any male caregivers, and tells her life story to any sympathetic ear - including, of course, how horrible her children are. I love my mom, but I hate sitting in the ER for hours in the middle of the night, watching this fiasco and knowing I have to go to work the next morning. I'm 55 years old with real health issues of my own and this is taking a toll. My brother refuses to go and my sister makes excuses why she can't, so it almost always falls on me. I'm due for a knee replacement very soon and I don't know what's going to happen when I can't drive and Mom makes her monthly visit to the ER.
