When my mom left the nursing home yesterday she was able to get my nan to eat 1/3 to 1/2 of her dinner. At about 9pm last night she got a phone call saying that my nan fell from the chair she was in and had some abrasions. No one knows if she was getting up, slid out of the chair (at times she slouches down in the chair) or what. When my mom said goodnight to her last night she noticed her body felt slightly warm but figured maybe it was from eating. The nurses took her temp last night and it was 101.4 and her oxygen was low so they placed her on oxygen. They were going to do a chest x-ray, bloodwork, and a urince C & S to see if it is from the UTI that she was treated with Cipro for. Needless to say the Cipro gave her a systemic yeast infection. This morning her temp was 101.3 there is so much stress going on right nnow its tough to handle. as in me recovering from 3 intestinal surgeries since February all with complications, trying to waen myself off of fentanyl pain patches under my drs care as well as lowering my dose of elavil (used for migraine prevention), both my car and husbands car need to be repaired, temporary disability screwed up and now I am waiting foe over 500 in money from them especially since I pay quite a few large bills within the month rent, electric, gas, cell phone (for 2 phones), cable/internet/home phone, car insurance, life insurance, auto insurance not to mention dealing with all the medical bills. I was dbl covered prior to my surgeries after being out 1 month at work I had to pay full or drop it and my husbands insurance never said I needed a letter of termination from my insurance so they would pick up as primary....sorry I digressed a lot
