Mom is home from the hospital!!! Basically we don't know what happened because the doctor couldn't give us any answers. We do know that she had fluid in her lungs and had pre-pneumonia. That was the main reason why she was admitted. She was given high doses of antibiotics on Monday afternoon and started to feel better almost immediately.
Tuesday morning she ate breakfast and the pain returned. The pain medicine did not help whatsoever and basically she screamed for 3 hours until the pain went away. When the doctor came in later that night he said that her stats were good, no fever, and the fluid in her lungs looked better. The spasms in her belly were a mystery. Instead of running more tests, he put her on a solid diet and crossed his fingers. I don't agree with not finding out WHY this was happening, but I don't have medical training.
After eating solid foods and without having any pain she was released from the hospital yesterday afternoon. I'm very grateful for those who sent prayers, vibes, whatever our way. I appreciate it! I don't know what I would do if I lost my Mom and I would be lying if that didn't cross my mind. It was the most disheartening feeling seeing her in so much pain and not being able to help. Hopefully she will be back to her normal wacky self soon and being home is a step in the right direction!
