After a rapid daily deterioration over last month, a medical consultant was called out from the hospital to see mum and had her admitted yesterday for potentially a few weeks. On Saturday she had a whole day of umpteen different doctors and nurses doing very invasive test and procedures, all of which have severely distressed her. I was on the other side of the ward and it was horrendous listening to her begging them to stop. Everytime anyone touches her - even just to adjust her pillow - she goes rigid and fights against it. She just won't/can't settle at all, she has been severely agitated all day today. They put a catheter in (as she has not been able to walk for the past few days) which seems to be upsetting her the most and she keeps trying to tug it out. Shes disconnected the drips many times and even bit through one yesterday. I admire the fight she still has left in her but I just don't know how to help her relax ... She last went in hospital 2 years ago where they didnt watch her and she got lost in the corridors - she manages to remember that all the time and how frightened she was, goodness knows what trauma this is going to leave in her head. I want to take her home, I can't bear this. How can you leave someone you love in this situation when they are is begging you to make it stop?
