Baba, I am glad you are now okay. That is an excellent suggestion. I carry my med list in my mind and Mayo has an updated list on their computer. However, if I were to be unconscious or in too much pain to think clearly, and taken to a different hospital, a medication list on me could be invaluable. Thanks for this great tip!
I hope you will have no more crises for awhile!
Rick, you have a great memory. Mine is pretty much useless these days. Maybe I should have my ammonia level checked. I don't think they've ever done it. But actually, I think it's just creeping senility. Or the fact that I have so darned much to remember, some of it falls through the cracks. Did I just say I'm cracked? Well, not cracked up to be very good at remembering things, anyway.
Hello Baba, Excellant suggestion. I put a list of meds in my husband's wallet and also in my purse. That way we were sure to have them when ever he had to go to the emergency. There were so many and the dosages kept changing there was no way that I or him could remember them all.
Sorry you didn't get to fish ............but glad you are recooperating from your surgery.
Keep up your postitve attitude........we are all in your corner.........thoughts and prayers......
Rick, I do that with a friend of mine who I'm pretty sure has early-onset Alzheimer's (her mom died from it.) I will say "Sounds like?" when she gets stuck. Or "What does it do?" I'm pretty good at figuring out what she's trying to say.
Have a good weekend!
