Today we received some good news for my mom!
I wrote a note to the doctor in charge of mom's care. Now, keep in mind, this doc is not mom's doctor, he is simply a doctor assigned to review the case. He is not on staff at the care facility. He is rarely physically present. I had to pass the note to the nurse, who then relayed my questions by phone to the doctor. Bless her heart, she did ask!
I mentioned a couple of labwork details that have been brushed off by four different doctors now and asked if he thought them worthy of concern. He responded by doing a number of blood tests!
Well, the results of one test came in, and BINGO! We are getting a referral to a good endocrinologist!
The other panel won't be in for a few days. I am anxiously awaiting that, but thankfully this kind and observant doctor really sees something worth a closer look and did not brush aside our concerns just because mom is 83 years old. He is pursuing the details her personal physician ignored.
She's had a good three days. Very clear-headed and more like herself than I've seen her in a long time. The other good news is that she may be out of the care facility in a couple of days. I hope it happens! I am anxious to be in my own home (600 miles away) after spending 5 weeks at mom's , and I'm very anxious for things to improve for mom. This has been one hellish year for her.
Keep praying, anyone who is reading this!
