My mother was admitted to hospital yesterday.
She had an accident and fell a few days ago, and refused to call the doctor. Yesterday morning she was so unwell she finally agreed she needed to go to hospital. The long and short is that she has fractured a few ribs (she has osteoporosis as well) and has now developed a chest infection .
I spent most of yesterday waiting for her to be assessed at the hospital, but she is now relatively comfortable, on huge amounts of IV and oral medication, as well oxygen and heparin due to her enforced bed rest.
Hopefully they will now get round to expediting her cataract surgery, as if that had been done and she was able to see where she was going, she wouldn't have had the accident which fractured her ribs.................
