Just Got Back from the E.R. ...............again!

October 8th, 2007 at 12:25 am

I'm just now home, it is after midnight. My aunt passed out at our place this evening, just as we were cleaning up from dinner.

Quickly decided it was a 911 situation, as she fell straight backwards, and obviously hit her head. The EMT's just as quickly decided to transport her to the ER. (everyone said things like "didn't we just visit your house, didn't we just see your mom??) Even at a hospital, twins just love the attention.

A concussion and a half dozen very complicated looking tests/X-rays and exams later..........my aunt was admitted to a wing of our local hospital specializing in elder care.

My mom is doing OK through all this.....she is now in bed, figuring we are headed back to the hosp. early in the AM.

What we did accomplish through tonights.....I guess it was yesterday at this point........events: Mom is now convinced she needs to get her final wishes/will type things up to date. Seeing how quickly things have gone downhill this week, she has promised me we can take care of the will & trust bit this week. I'm going to do my best to hold her to this.

With this being a holiday, I'm pretty darned sure I can't make any headway getting my moms follow up DR appointments made for her emergency room visit this week. She needs 2 of them, and I haven't heard back from the referral desk yet.

I did get in touch with my aunts Dtr in law this evening, and to my surprise, she and my cousin (my aunts only child) won't be coming up her tonight. DIL will call me in the AM to see how things are she said. Gads. Can't imagine. I am not going to let my aunt take off from here in her own car........and drive the almost 3 hours to her house when she is released. She lives alone, with no family any closer than we are to her. She didn't even give the hospital her sons number as an emergency contact, but gave our number.

Needless to say, our weekend of R & R for my aunt has gone amuck. Hoping I can keep my mom on an even keel through all this.........and again, I thought of how impossible it would be if I was working! Not a chance. I've almost got 2 full time positions here now.

And, through all this..........I've misplaced my cell phone for the first time. Grabbed my moms as we took off for the hospital, but so far, mine hasn't surfaced. That may solve my question re; if we still needed 2 phones! Smile

    I'm so sorry about your aunt! I know this must all be very hard on you all, specially your mom. My favorite aunt was an identical twin and I just loved to see her and her sister together. It was so fun for me to watch how much alike they were and to spot the often very tiny differences. I hope your aunt will be okay and that your mom will tend to things quickly. Prayers for you all.

    Sending good thoughts your way. Thank goodness you've been there for your mother and aunt. You've done an awesome job of taking care of them both. I hope they both are back on their feet and feeling much better soon. If you think your phone is on, you could try to call it. I've done that....
