Mama spent a week in the hospital. Her kidney function is back to 100% and her blood pressure is stabilized. While she is well enough to not be in the hospital, she is not well enough to go home by herself. We have moved her to a rehab/ assisted living facility to regain her strength, so that eventually she will be able to go home.
While she was in the hospital, we found out she was taking one of her med incorrectly, which meant she was talking too much. She is now on the correct dose. The doctors also reduced the amount of blood pressure medications she is to take, and in all, she is now only on four medications total, instead of about 11 or 12, four of which were blood pressure meds.
She will stay at the rehab facility until she meets the goals given to her by the physical therapy staff. How long that takes is going to be up to her. Her medicare and insurance pays 100%, but we are not sure for how long. Until she goes home, I will be going to visit twice a week. I am hoping she has a really quick recovery.
