I am in vanquish about this. Mom 91 has been in NH for a week and a half. The plan was for her to go back to ALF. She was recently hospitalized with a partial bowel obstruction. Not the first time this has happened. When I was notified that there was a gastrointestinal outbreak at NH and they had closed wings, cancelled all activites and were discouraging visits, I immediately contacted them to be sure my mother's symptoms were not being mistaken for GI if it was the obstruction. What was reported assured me. I have had regular updates. I sent her a letter though staff so she knew I was thinking of her and aware. Her temp has reduced, she is still having diarrhea which would probably not be happening with the obstruction. Staff says she is now very agitated asking if I know and is certain she has an obstruction. Staff says they cannot and would not prevent me from visiting but wouldn't advice it either until she is not actively presenting. I am torn up with guilt not going, but not sure I would do one bit of good if I did.
