Amazing what a bit of fit throwing can do. My mom is still in the hospital and they wanted us to put her in a nursing home and just basically let her die. The social worker came in and told us we needed to go with her and fill out the papers to get her out and in a home and my sister bluntly and not so nicely that wasn't happening. She told her until they could tell us why she went from being mobile to immobile in a matter of a few hours she wasn't going anywhere. The next day the dr came in and by the urging of our nurse she told him she wanted her to be seen by a nuerologist and an orthopedic to try and determine why she was like she was and he said give me a reason to call them in and she said I gave you a reason. He conceded and did and wow what we have begun to find out.
She has 10 fractures on her vertebrae. She was dehydrated and now we found out today she needs blood and they have been running a plethora of tests to see what all is wrong with her. Tomorrow they will start doing a radiation drop where the test takes 3 days to go through her body. The neurologist wants to see what has happened in her brain. They are also doing GI series to see where the blood is going. So glad to have a hard headed sister who wouldn't take no for an answer.
