I have not been around a lot as lately
My lovely Mum has been so poorly with diabetes and had a pace maker fitted two weeks ago.
On Tuesday she was rushed back in with a diabetic hypo as we thought!
I phoned & they said all was well When Dad and I finally got to see her Wednesday we where so shocked at what we saw doctor & nurses around Mums bed & they said can you get her to respond to you as they could not,
Dad was in tears he is in his mid 80s & is lost without Mum,
Mum looked so poorly eyes closed & non responsive!
Doctor said she has had a stroke! how could this be that's not what she came in for
I held her hand and I leaned over her put my face close to hers & said Mum her eyes opened but did not focus & closed again soon after we sat for hours with much the same response & the occasional groan we had to leave for home at the end of the day so I brought dad to stay at our house so he was not alone.
We went in & mum had her eyes open & could focus imagine our joy,
Dad shed yet more tears & had to leave the room a few times to compose himself
Drips in both arms & tube up nose feeding her,
Mums voice was trying hard to come back she could not get the words out & was frustrated & agitated.
Mum was looking better eyes open & she could say words but it soon became apparent things were still amiss when she started pointing to the wall & saying look at those lovely white cottages along the shore and the sea is so blue! And look at the pretty tree with the lovely bluebird in it that was a table with a blue folder on it then there was the little train going around another patients bed!
I get nurse to take mums blood sugar levels at this stage but all was well so I think she was just getting tired we left for the night
Much the same brought mum two new nighties to pretty her up a little
Sat up in bed new nighty on feeding tube out most of the drips out smiling & talking
She had walked to the bathroom drip in tow a little unsteady but she did it
Had a cup of tea & ate some food still a way to go but a miracle
I just hope tomorrow will be another great day
Happy Mothers Day Mum
