New room

Mummy got moved out of the ICU. The move was slightly traumatic for mummy because she hates being moved around and put in a new environment. She had just gotten used to the ICU.

Medicine time is every 4 hours or so, and it is not easy. Just now, she forgot how to swallow. She just held it in her mouth for a long time, and then when we asked her a question thinking it had gone in, half of it just fell out. I kept telling her to swallow it, she kept asking me,”How? Do it for me!” More medicine came out of her mouth. I’m not even sure how much of it went down.

Since Mummy has severe diarrhea, she has no control over it. They come and clean her every 2 hours. When her sleep is interrupted by painful turns to her side, she gets very agitated and anxious.

She keeps asking when she’s going home. She says, “Ok, get up, let’s go, let’s leave, we’re leaving.” I have to gently explain that we can’t do that, but it doesn’t work like that.

She’s still pretty weak. She needs to recover for a bit more before we can go home.

It’s 6:30 am and she fell asleep again, after talking about how quickly we have to go home. She probably just got tired.

Not sure how much longer she will stay in the hospital, or how her care will be more challenging after this….but that’s too much for my sleep-deprived brain to figure out right now. We’ll deal with all that when we have to. Right now, let’s focus on getting her healthy. The pieces will fall into place after that.
