For older folks, each day they spend in the hospital, it can take them 7 days to recover their strength, that means if she spent 3 days in the hospital, it could take 21 days to get back to her regular self. I do not know how old your Mom is, but she does need that recovery time.

Ain't that the truth. Hospitals are not run for the comfort of the patient. They are run for the convenience of the staff and according to doctor's orders.

When I had my abdominal surgery the doctor came in on day four or five. Ask me how I was doing. I broke down into tears and told him I was exhausted. I begged him to give the order that the next time I was sleeping, let me sleep until I woke up. The next time I woke up, the nurse came in and told me I had been sleeping for 10 hours straight.

I hope they find out what's wrong and are able to fix her up. It's terrible when they cannot get a diagnosis.

We're waiting for Stirling's brother to show up. We are going to see the Fabergé exhibit in town with brother and M-I-L.

Good morning, all. Up and ready bright and early (for me, haha) for a day trip to my daughter and son-in-laws cabin up in Kennedy Meadows. Fishing, boating, a little hiking, probably some grillin', and just generally getting out of the heat here for a day. YAY! See y'all later, have a good day!

I know this is late but update on mom - the UTI is back with a vengeance, she's dehydrated, and her electrolytes are out of whack. She's going to be in the hospital for a few days so she can get her strength built back up.
