Dear Tiff40 - Believe me, I've been thru a tremendous amount with my mom. No, they won't get better. The best thing is to keep them as healthy & comfortable as possible. It is imperative that your mom takes all her meds and eats the proper foods. She needs to keep her amonia level down. That makes a world of
difference. Has a nutritionist helped you?? Please insist that if your mom doesn't feel well enough or if you feel she shouldn't be discharged, discuss this with her doctor!!! Hospitals are to willing to release patients before they should be and wind up coming right back. sometimes worse than when they left. I've been thru this with my dad and seen this with my mom. She'd be home for a week, her amonia level would sky rocket and she'd go right back into the ER. By the time a doctor would see her and evaluate her, her amonia level would be continuing to rise!!! It's very frustrating for me and family to have to go thru her entire history with the doctors over and over again when we know what's wrong. Please, if you need an invisible
shoulder or to vent, I constantly check my email and will respond immediately. I've been thru alot and maybe there's some advise that I can help you & your mom with. Don't hesitate. I know it's difficult, but stay strong for yourself and your mom and don't forget to eat!!! (We do that sometimes!!)
Hope to hear from you soon.
