I hate Urbana

Well, about 5 this evening, my sis-in-law called me and told me the squad was coming for my mother, who was to a point where she couldn't walk. This meant finding a ride back here to help take care of mom.
Kill me.
By the time I got to the hospital, the Demerol was just starting to kick in. Mom told me I had nice teeth. She then started telling more of those stories we only get when mom is on painkillers.
So, my brother gets there, and Lisa leaves. The entire time, mom's bitching about getting admitted, since she can't walk.
Well, they now have mom on a narcotic drip. Yes, she's been admitted. I hate seeing her in pain, but what can I do, short of amputation?
So, now I'm stuck at my brother's house until he leaves for work tomorrow. Parents should not be allowed to get sick until the children are able to take care of them.
I swear, I'll put something funny up tomorrow. Right now, I'm way to irritated to cope.

I can understand your situation. A couple of years ago my mother and step-mother both had "suprise" bypasses. My thoughts are with you and your mother. I hope all turns out well.

Sorry to hear that.
I wouldn't mind, but all of my experiances with Nursing homes are unpleasant. I used to deliver pizza to at least 3 Alsheimer's Wards. I hated not being able to help the folks.

I hope your mom has a quick recovery.

I hope so too, but it's not looking good. They gave her a lot of pain killers, but the pain wasn't going away.
I think they're taking her for an MRI tomorrow.

((((Hugs))) I hope your mom is doing better. I never really know what to say in these types of situations, but know that I've been there and I'm here for you if you need to talk.

I'd feel a lot better about the situation if someone would have the courtesy to call me and let me know what's going on. It pissed me off that I had temporary Power of Attorney because I was the one who could get to the hospital. And it hurt to see mom in pain, and knowing that the cow tranqs weren't helping.
