My wife got a call from my mother earlier tonight, something that’s highly unusual for Mom to do. Mom asked my wife if she could be outside the front door to her facility in 20 minutes to pick her up. Mom says they’re recruiting an army from the residents in her skilled nursing facility and Mom doesn’t want to be recruited into their army. We had to let her down easy by telling her that we live in Austin, Texas, which is over a thousand miles from her in Raleigh, North Carolina, and that there was no way we could be there in twenty minutes. She said she’ll “have to figure out other arrangements.”
Apparently this is pretty par for the course when Mom has a UTI, but I’ve never seen things this bad with her.
I’m not sure how much of this is the UTI and how much is the stroke.
That’s about all I have energy for tonight. For some reason I am bone tired and really want to go lie down.
