Mom's on one diuretic every other day now (from two a day being her normal). They were discontinued seven days completely, then started up at one every other day. She can no longer stand up...can't push herself to help me stand her up with her gait belt. Takes time to raise her up an hold her in place. She's pretty much dead weight.
The doctor doesn't understand why her need for diuretics has dropped significantly. Little fluid retention.
She's eating well; alert; not sleeping all the time. But apparently much muscle weakness in her legs.
Anyone have any ideas?
I can't keep her at home if I can't get her to "stand and turn" -- and for the last two days, I've been unable to do that. Tom has to help.
