She's still in a coma. She's in cardiology ICU. The hospitalist was giving me and my family the run around, not there, not telling us much; so, I fired him. I called the doctor at the hospital where I worked and asked him if he'd look after my mother, and he said that he would. He came right up to the hospital that night. Looked at her chart, assessed her, and gave us the low down. Basically, they are going to have to run a lot of tests. He told me that he would get the CT scan done to see if she had any neck injury and if she didn't, he would take off the c-collar (neck brace). I was glad to hear that. The other doctor hadn't really done anything about getting the consults in. *&^#!
My mother is 76 years old. She's a pretty sturdy lady, and she is a stout Christian. I just don't want her suffering during this time. I know that she's satisfied with her course in life. She isn't a smoker or a drinker, but she did love to eat. She is a fluffy grandma! The kind the kids love to hug. She was able-bodied prior to this incident. You know that she had to be a tough woman to have 13 children. Our dad (her husband) died in his 40's. We're just going to take it day by day.
My mother always smiled! So, I know that she wouldn't want us to be in dispair; but you know how that goes. . .
Thanks to everyone who PM'd me or mentioned their kind thoughts in message! I'll be in and out, back and forth to the hospital. I guess it's good that I took a leave of absence from work!
