WHEW!!  I barely had time to breathe yesterday. It started before
daylight and went on until after dark. Mom was finally transferred
to her dialysis center where she got a treatment and then
transferred again to our hometown tendercare facility. While she was
at her treatment I investigated WHY my cell phone was acting out
and not working! Talk about frustrated!
I spent almost an hour
in the SHAK trying to get it resusuitated…. but no matter what they
did .. it was fruitless. I pronounced it over and moved on to the
21st century. Those great people there ..especially AMANDA,
worked pretty hard to try to get it working. Now I have a new baby
to try to figure out how to make work. SHE said it was easy . but it’s NOT!
It rings and I can call out so I am happy with that!!  I rushed through
lunch and went to the KMT to get some items I knew mom would need.
When I arrived back at the treatment center.. She was the last one
left in the chair at 5:10 PM. The ambulance people showed up right
on time about 10 minutes later and she was carted yet again back
to her hometown. She is getting well known by all those ambulance
drivers. I think she has taken about 5 rides in the past 10 days.
Sis and I were satisfied with her PRIVATE room (so far) at the
facility. (I hate callling it a home.. cause it isn’t to her) We have
been calling it REHAB to mom. She will have rehab when she can
tolerate it to try to get her strength back. The only thing that kept
me sleepless at 2 AM was the lack of close care regarding her
meds etc and her BED. It was way too small and no rails so
she could fall out very easily. We set the bed as low to the
floor as we could get it! I sat chairs right up against
it so she would not fall out on either side. Crazy!! Will go out
today and try to solve that whole situation, and take the camera.
YOU KNOW how I am.. I’ve got to document everything!!!
Meanwhile the house at home looks like a BOMB went off.
I haven’t been home long enough to do much of anything
but will attempt that today!!!
I look at every step as a new one ,and have hopes of improvement
for mom at each new day.
More with PICS coming soon.
