My Mom is still in the Hosp and Im still sick

Just a catch up note that everything is about the same here.
My Mom is holding her own but the Dr says she is still not eating and sleeping alto.
They have been giving her 3 units of blood.
They have here under Skilled care now which is just paper work for Medicare .The Dr doesn't see her so often now as when she first went in.
I know she has been getting cards from you all and is enjoying them so much.
I went to the Dr Monday I still have a fever and no energy and he gave me 2 more shots and told me to come back in a week.....Still cannot go visit my mother with these fever.
I have done nothing have no energy at all....I do go at about to eat a good lunch and from there on if my hubby get hungry he fixes soup or a sandwich.
this is the pits with 3 of us down but believe me I have gotten the much needed rest I was in need of.
I called and talked with my Mom she is very hard of hearing so I screaming in the phone and she did understand that my intention is bring her home as soon as I am able.
Which she had no problem hearing.
This is the first time in 5 years that we have been away from each other!!!!!Its so hard not having her here ..
But I do know that this must have happened for a reason.
I was complete exhausted.
Hopefully soon I will be better...
thanks for all your cards to Mom I cant wait to see them all.........
I will keep you all posted soon Hugs Imabest

Dear Kathy...that is a mess.You guys really got a bad bug. Sounds almost like old-fashioned flu. I am sure yoiu would ratrher have her home, but with all sick and her needing blood..that isn't something you can do at home. Try to put your mind at ease (hard to do) and just rest. Do you have family nearby..I forget?
(((Kathy and all))). Derry

RE: My Mom is still in the Hosp and Im still sick

Kathy, why is your mother needing blood? It sounds almost the same as my MIL, when she went in. She quit eating altogether. I hope eventually the spring weather will renew us all and get you and your mother back in shape. God Bless you all. Got to run ...just home for the day doing bills. Back to the R.V......want to be home so bad....hmmmmm...funny alot of you would like to be traveling huh...well this is a work situation not vacation...toot a loo.....Gabs

RE: My Mom is still in the Hosp and Im still sick

My mom lives with me for the last 11 year's. When she has to be in the hospital for any reason I find it harder then when she's at home cause here in Texas the hospitals are so far from where I live and I get lost alot..

But you should try to rest.. I know it's easy for me to say.. My mom is going on 86 this year and also hard of hearing.. Her hearing is getting worse also.. She wears a hearing aid but I don't think it helps all that much anymore..

Hugs to you and your family..

RE: My Mom is still in the Hosp and Im still sick

Sorry to hear all that you and your family are going thru right now, Kathy. I'm sorry I don't have all the details, as I haven't been on here much lately with Mom needing more care than ever, but I'll send up a prayer for you and yours and pray you all get your health back and be stronger than ever.

RE: My Mom is still in the Hosp and Im still sick

Kathy, have really had a bad time of this flu bug. Good to hear that Mom is doing o.k. It's hard having her in the hospital...and not being able to go and see her....5 years is a long time....hate that you have to go thur this so need this time for rest. Spring is here and soon you all will be well and be able to sit out on that deck. Love and prayers sent to you,DH and DM. Nora

RE: My Mom is still in the Hosp and Im still sick

Hi Kathy... Keep resting and let your body heal itself. You've pushed it long and hard, young lady!!! Yes, it's difficult for both you and your DM to be separated, but this isn't of your choosing. It's a necessity... I'm sorry I don't know how to send your DM a card. But I pray God is merciful and ministers healing to each of you. ~breezy

My best thoughts are coming your way for you and your mom.
Hope you get over your illness, and get reunited with your mom.
