We all have been sick with the flu!!
Hubby is on his 6th day me on my 5th and Mom on her 2nd day of the flu.
My mom has not been eating well for the last 2 weeks and now the last 2 day mostly just jucie and water.
I cant get ahold of our Dr (its friday nite) so in the morning Im going to get her ready for a trip to the hospital.
She is so weak and can hardly walk with even the help of the walker.
Im somewhat better but still cant find anything to eat and will stay down.
Had a milkshake today.
Hopefully she will get some strenght back with some meds and Iv's/
Can you tell Im a wreck ????
Im rambling I can tell
Keep us in your thoughts and hugs for all of you Imabest

Kathy.....Ohhhh so sorry to hear that. If it isn't bad enough trying to care for your Mother in her state, then all of you are sick. Sending well wishes your way, and lots of Hugs. Being your Mother is elderly, and not eating....she may go down fast Kathy. For sure, get her to the hospital tomorrow. I will be praying for you all. We lost our Mother Lara Feb 8th....she went in with a UTI...and never got any better, quit eating, slept contiually, and then passed, when her kidneys shut down. Will check back later and hope you all regain health again so soon......LOTS OF HUGS Gabby

RE: I need some strength from you all

I hope everything goes well and you get her (and you!) to the hospital in the awful for you all...
They may keep your Mom overnight for IV fluids to build her up....Take good care

RE: I need some strength from you all

Hi Kathy... I'm so sorry all of you are sick. I wish I was nearby so I could help you... May God minister healing and strength to each of you and bless you all with a good night's rest. Your dear mother must be quite old now... She's an amazing gal!!! :) Do I remember correctly that you suffer with your back??? Please be careful. May God bless and touch each of you. ~breezy

Joining with the others to wish your family a quick & complete recovery. If your mom is hospitalized, will the soc services offer home health aid for short term at least? Especially with your own illness, I would think that would be a priority for her homecoming.

RE: I need some strength from you all

Kathy....So sorry to hear that you all have the flu. Please know that I will be keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers. Your DM sure does need to be in the and your DH need all the rest you can get to get over the flu. Pray that the doctors can also give you all something. Let us know how you are doing. As Breezy said...wished I was close so I could help out. Blessings, Nora

RE: I need some strength from you all

Hi Kathy....wondering how it's going there. Y'all are really having a time. Being that sick and having to care for other sick ones borders on being an emergency. I hope you have gotten help in some form, and you are starting to get better by now....tune in when you can and let us know what's happening. Thinking about'cha. Derry

RE: I need some strength from you all

I hope all went well for your mom. That must have been quite a strain caring for her and your family with you being ill.
Sorry my best wishes are late, but they still come your way.
