Hi, This is following on from my Broken Hip post. Went up to see mum today and am very concerned. They gave her a half dose of morphine in A&E last night to help with the pain and it sent her completely off. She hasn't really been back since. She has been asleep all day and when i went back into hospital this evening before driving home she was still sleeping. I tried but could not rouse her. The anesthetist assessed her this evening and has pronounced her currently unfit for surgery. Her oxygen sats are down and she is having some oxygen to help with her breathing. She will be having a medical assesment in the morning. I can't quite get my head around where this has come from. Apart from the AZ she was in good health up until her fall. I'm bewildered as to what is going on. Why is she sleeping so heavily? why are her sats falling? they can't leave her with a broken hip (the neck of the femur is broken and has compromised blood supply to the bone -they are planning a partial hip replacement asap) can they? I really didn't want to leave her tonight. We are a 2 hour drive away from the hospital, but I couldn't keep my 10 & 8 year old there all night. Why do I feel that this is the beginning of the end? Part of me hopes it is, part of me prays it isn't. How did we come to this.
