do you need more fun in your life?
I have been busy looking after my mother, who had to go to the hospital emergency.We have been 3 times and finally they decided to keep her. She had unusual symptons, a hard time breathing, very weak , droppy eye, seeing double. And some you think well the droppy eye she had a stroke, not so. Seeing double she had a stroke, not so, weak same thing. She had all this unusual symptons that nobody could figure out, really quite serious. And then all of the sudden it comes back and she has a bladder infection. When you are older and get a bladder infection, it effects you differently you can become confused, forget how to write, etc. Good thing to know, keep that in mind., So hopefully this will resolve some of the problems. When you get older it is like you are invisible. If you dont have someone by your side, you can fall through the healthcare cracks very easily. Because your old, your just a complainer, you dont know what you are talking about and then the senior just shuts down. Remember most everyone gets old and sick and what goes around comes around. In this day and age, your caregivers are your family, and thats what the healthcare wants, they dont want them in the hospital costing them money.
