That was the attitude I got in Dad's last two weeks of life. I wanted to say "I hope some nurse/doctor/administrator says the same thing to you while you watch your parent die". No offense to your sister, just the attitude.

No offense taken, my sister offends me too. I just don't undertand why a person without compassion would go into health care. Thank goodness for our own PF!

I'm wondering also if Mom might have had a small stroke, her NP thought it was possible. I'm just happy that this normally lucid, albeit at times difficult woman is with us on the short term care thing.
Well, they admitted Mom into the hospital due to anemia and confusion. Thank goodness we'd talked to the Nurse Prac in advance, , Mom tried her best to sound normal, but they didn't buy it. Will have to see how the tests come out. Thanks for all the support!

dawg, i'm sorry that your mom is sick, that you are having to deal with this all from a distance. how far away from your mom do you live? hopefully, she can soon regain her equilibrium at the hospital. a heart attack and a major heart pacemaker procedure are plenty enough to throw your mom off her game, but i think it's routine hospital policy to look for signs of stroke. the very experience of being hospitalized, even more frightening for one not familiar with hospitals, i'm sure has added to your mom's sense of dislocation and confusion. i'm sending good vibes out to you and your mom, and hoping for a quick recovery, and return to normalcy. for all of you.:)

I was behind by three pages on this thread. You all need to know that I said prayers for you as I was reading.
