Thoughts and Prayers needed....

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
I was at the rescue centre when this happened, so I don't really know what's going on.

My sister called me 15 minutes ago and told me to beat it home ASAP. I heard sirens as I was hightailing it home, almost got hit by 2 cars.

My mum was taken to the hospital by ambulance. I'm not sure what for this time. I know yesterday she was having some difficulties with her chest. She has Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.
I didn't make it home in time to see her before she went, and with no car I have no way to get to the hospital.

So any thoughts and prayers to help her will be very appreciated.

My aunt and Uncle both have cars, but they are both at work.. so I won't be able to get a ride until 7pm or so.

I can't drive alone yet anyway, so no worries there. Only have a beginners license so far.

I'd walk if it weren't so cold.. it's take me about 2 hours or so.

I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that your mom is okay, at least we can hope she is in the hospital which should be the best place for her at the current time

No one at the center can drive you? Or could you at least possibly get some information from your sister or the hospital? I hope everything turns out okay, I know its nerve-wracking to know something might be wrong! I'm praying for you and your mom.

My uncle left work early, went and picked her up and dropped her off.

She's okay... short of breath still though. I'd rather they have kept her until she was a bit better.. but as long as she's okay I'm happy.
Awaiting the drug store to drop off a crapload of meds for her, again. (prednisone, and the thingies that go into the ventilator thing machine. )

I am in the process of vacuuming everything on the main floor. Cat hair may be an issue. I vacuumed literally everything... down to the couch cushions. I think it alsomay be because we've been leaving the windows open, and anything that comes inside may be bothering her chest as well.

I'll be sleeping on the couch down here tonight, just incase she needs me for anything.

Thanks guys for everything.

oh heck just coming to this ..........glad your mom is home now, hopefully she will have a good rest being back in her own place

I know its not the same but my DH has asthma problems, so I'm constantly hoovering, but I also damp dust things too - that stops alot of the hair etc flying about - its harder work but it sure helps his chest - just a thought

Take care all

I am so mad.

The hospital lied, they did not send her home because they were understaffed. They sent her home because of the cats.

The paramedics saw the cats and were sure they were the only problem. My mum told them that they were not a problem, as she went 6 years without any animals and still was in the hospital regularily. The paramedic then asked her if she had an allergy test done before..and she told him yes. he asked what she was allergic to, and she told him to look outside.
We back off onto a ravine, lots of weeds and the like out there.
He then proceeded to tell her that it wasn't spring yet that the weeds weren't an issue, that it was for sure the cats.

So anyway, at the hospital, the paramedics then told the DR that it was the cats... no doubt about it. THE DR then told her that the cats were going to have to go.
She told them that the cats were not an issue, and said again that she ahs gone long periods of time with no animals, that it was the same.

So they wrote her a few scripts and sent her home.

She told the DR and Paramedic that they were lucky that I wasn't there and didn't get there before they left. She said I would have hurt someone. I wouldn't have physically hurt anybody.. but I can be pretty verbal when I'm mad.

But I am extremely mad over this. The cats may be a small problem.. but they are defiantly not the main cause of this.
