She's a little better

The hub went to see his mom tonight.  She was better, still hallucinating but at least now she was using words instead of: mmmsggsss, ggggeerrrrr, mms, kkkkaaa, mahnnaaaa.  But I could hear her and she was telling someone that she was falling.  She wasn't, she was right in bed, in no danger of falling over.  She has a big fear of falling.  

Man oh man, it's a good thing I get paid on Tuesday.  When the hub called and said he was going to the grocery store before coming home I asked the him to get something at the grocery store for the daughter (who slept all day due to a migraine) and I figured I could eat for dinner too.  

He didn't get it so I had no dinner.  Wah.  Now I am hungry.  I should have eaten his chili dog today when I had the opportunity, but I didn't because I left it for him.  

And now I'm going to bed.

Oh, man. This all sounds so freaking complex. I hope they can get her drug cocktail figured out. Soon!

In fairness to Emeritus, this time they did attempt to contact us at around 2:30 Sunday. One of the messages may have even been sooner. I was out and didn't notice the flashing message light until about dinner time. I don't know why they didn't try my cell. I think they've used it before.

I'm pretty danged sure she wasn't right in the morning. I'm sure she didn't eat her food in the morning and did you know Joan was there for 2 hours? Joan was there for lunch and MIL was unresponsive and speaking gibberish from the get-go.

Joan called them twice because she told them there was something wrong. They didn't come so she called again. I'm just not sure they would have done anything without Joan making a big stink.

I actually have issues with them not noticing that her urine output must have been pretty much nil days before she went into lala land.
