my mom was in the hospital every other week until i stepped in and went to her doctors with her and asked about
lactulose, spironaldactone, and lasixs. that seemed to help with her problems for awhile. the encephalopathy never showed any signs for her she just went into it but she didnt have a whole lot until the day after her surgery for her ulcer that she got it, asking for her mom and dad and i kept having to explain they are gone, trying to pull out her nose tube and kept asking for sprite and i had to tell her she couldnt have it due to her stomach and then she would look at me and say"i dont know what im doing" and when she did that it broke my heart. it is hard seeing the ones you love suffer so great.
if she wanted though she can give the hospital permission written to allow you to know her status i believe but i could be wrong on that.
oh and my mom had a lot of utis to so i think its part of the disease. i want to welcome you both to the forum to.
The only person who can make you happy is you. Be your own self and love who you are because each and every one of you are wonderful for who you are
