babe, thinking of you and sending out prayers for Wallie.

Yes, not everyone responds to drugs the way they're "supposed" to. I will hope they find the right combination for her to get well.

my gentle friend is now being restrained. she pulled everything out again and fell , banging her head. i know it is for her safety but seems so sad. they keep asking daughter is her mom suffers from dementia. not til she went in hospital she wasn't. i don't think she is now, just lots of drugs and her tolerance is very low. now she has pneumonia so more antibiotics. i didn't go today. she would not like me to see her trussed up like a christmas turkey.

it has to start getting better. the doctor said the surgery was just fine, that these are health issues, duh. it is not wonder older people don't trust doctors anymore.

i feel if daughter had brought her home on friday, they wanted her to, that it might be different. she said no room for walker and oxygen. balder dash. her aunt lived in that mobil home in a wheel chair. i used a walker in mine when i broke my foot. she just did not want to care for her.

thanks for letting me sound off. and thank you for all the prayers and good thoughts.

babe

babe - hopefully when they ween her off the pain meds she'll settle back down. That has to be very frightening for everyone involved. Hugs to you!

wally is still in ICU. she is on heart meds. blood pressure meds (it shot way up) oxygen by some kind pak thing. will take that off soon so she can cough. then will be a respirator. they took of pak thing and oxygen level went to 60.

i googled several aspects of this situation. not a rosy outlook. the pneumonia, the heart are common in this kind of surgery in older people.

she still says they are trying to kill her and daughter is in on it. dr. says that is dementia caused by lack of oxygen. all of it scares the hell out of me.
