So Mum woke up today around lunch time feeling light headed/dizzy and her vocabulary is mixed up. It’s like she knows what she wants to say but words are random. I can make out what she’s saying but she’s not using the correct words for half her sentence.
I suspect she may had had a TIA.
She got a bit better and was spending time out on the balcony enjoying the fresh air.
Mum did not want to go to hospital but later tonight I convinced her to visit the doctors.
Of course the doctor referred her to hospital ask suspecting TIA. Said to take her in now. She doesn’t know Mums history as it’s not her regular doctor but ran some simple tasks. Blood pressure was good. Anyhow, Mum is still not wanting to go...
Last time we were at the hospital she cried to go home and eventually after 5 days she was released. There was some trouble as I am not POA, and one of the doctors said she might not be allowed to come home with me anymore!! This scared the living crap out of my mum and I had to then comfort her for several hours past visiting hours. The head doctor then re-assured us that she could return home with me BUT she also said for me to consider next time if to bring her in if Mum does not want to be there!
So fast forward to now, what do I do?!? Do I take Mum in when she doesn’t want to go and after the doc at the same hospital told me to consider mums wishes OR do I take Mum home and monitor?
I'm still not her POA as Mum has insisted she’s fine every time we have approached the topic.
