Prayers for my mom please.

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
She just got taken away in an ambulance because she has a severe bloody nose and can't get it to to stop and she's diabetic. They just took her to the hospital, my dad went with her and he told me to stay home with the furkids. Thanks so much in advance.. I think if she can't get it to stop she's probably anemic.

I just don't want to ever lose her. We almost lost her around my birthday last year and I just hope & pray they can fix this. I'll probably go see her later but I'll just stay here for now the dogs are going nuts.

Wow that sounds scary... I know how it feels to be so worried my mom has given us a few scares also..
I hope it's nothing serious, sending lots of vibes, my thoughts are with you!

My mom had the same thing a couple of years ago. They did an emergency cauterization surgery by an ENT and she made a full recovery.

Thank goodness your mom's family called 911! My mom showed up at her doc's office with a blood soaked dish towel....delayed her treatment by a lot of minutes...sigh.

I'm hoping for a great outcome!!!!

If she's taking any medications, even OTC NSAIDs, that could be why it doesn't want to stop bleeding.

I regularly take NSAIDs and as a result I'm a bleeder.

I'm sure they'll get it to stop and do some blood test to see if there's anything else wrong. Hopefully she'll be home soon.

If she gets nose bleeds often, one of the contributing factors to this is low humidity. It might help her if they get some humidifiers for her home.

Thank you so much everyone.
She's home now. The doctors said it could
have been high blood pressure. They had to cautorize (sp?) the membrane with nitrate silver
to stop the bleeding.

She said the doctor told her as people get older
(my mom is 54) the platelet in your membranes weaken causing it
to be more thinner plus the meds for diabetes she's on could
have made it worse.

She's okay now, thanks again everyone!
But she can't bend down or sneeze or anything so I am going
to be helping her out with stuff! I am SO glad the doctors could help her. It was scary.


she doesn't get nosebleeds often but that's a wonderful idea. Our dogs are much peaceful now she's home it's like if I leave or my dad leave they go nuts but super nuts when my mom does because she's here all the time.

Glad to hear your Mom is ok now. My older sister had the same problem last year and she was ok after they packed her nose for a couple of days.

How are you going to keep her from sneezing? Make funny faces and distract her from it? (that does work)
