Mom went to the ER on Friday, this is Monday. She was hallucinating and paranoid. First UA showed clear, second showed some white cells and last showed white and red. She was hallucinating, confused and really not coherent about her surroundings. They started her on IV antibiotics and the resident team just thought she came out of it remarkably. They released her today, back to the nursing home. She was acting strange while we waited for discharge and then would correct herself. By the time she got back to the home, she was totally off in her thoughts. She was upset I didn't leave her money for her supper. She thinks she is in her home. She has alarms, because she is a fall risk and impulsive. Constantly getting up without help tonight. She got really upset with the nurses. I just went there and she insists that is her business, the girls are in her office. She kept saying things like they don't have a ticket. She got very mad at me, when I tried to reason with her. I tried to make her promise not to get up without help.
They originally were going to do an MRI on her head, but since they felt like she was better, they cancelled it. The nursing staff did a great job trying to respond to her tonight and they are upset, because this is so out of character for her.
I am at my wits end, her doctor is too laid back and the attending that was on this weekend, is just as bad. They are calling her doc, he is only in that office two days a week, tomorrow and asking about doing an MRI.
Anyone have thoughts and ideas? I am the POA and only child here. I do have some moral support from my siblings. I talked to 3 of the 4 tonight and we want her to switch doctors, but I don't think she will. She has had the same one for a long time and thinks he does no wrong.
I am praying she sleeps tonight and quits getting out of bed without help. She told me her vision was worse, blurry and double. She has macular degeneration, very advanced, and told the nurse tonight she only sees white.
Any thoughts? I can't sleep worrying about her and how bad I feel since she thinks we are against her.
