I didn't get to put a title on here. My mum's been in NH 6 wks & I've mentioned on here previously that she would stay in bed for 17 or more hrs in the day & refuse to get up & eat or drink. Was also putting herself at risk of danger, climbing on chair to try & change light bulb & blowing the fuse & leaving frying pan on & walking away etc. I'm so relieved she's now safe in NH & is like a different person in there. Gets up in morn eats all her meals & when I visit, she's walking around & thankfully getting exercise by doing so. Never goes back to bed until bedtime. Yest I got a call from a nurse to say my mum's not well & they've put her in bed. She said, it's nothing to worry about, but just wanted to let me know. Told me, she was eating her dinner, went pale & got sick, so they lay her down & her blood pressure was low. I went in & she was in bed asleep & seemed very drowsy, opening her eyes & then back to sleep. Nurse said blood pressure had gone back to normal when I got there. I had mentioned to another nurse day before, that my mum had swollen calves & her blood pressure was checked then & said normal. I told nurse yest, about her ankles & she said that was retention of water. While my mum was sleeping I checked her wardrobe to make sure she had clean clothes. I could smell a strong smell of urine & found pajama trousers my mum had put back in drawer & were soaking wet with urine. I told the nurse & asked if was a uti, said possibly & she'd check her urine later. We don't go out very much, but had tickets for the theatre last night that we'd booked a few months ago. We did go out, but I was so worried & kept checking my phone & thankfully the NH didn't ring me, so I felt reassured that she was ok. I am going in to see her today & really hope she is much better & that maybe it was just a bug. I feel it could be a uti though & feel I've diagnosed her myself, but they know best & I'll talk to the nurses when I go in. As I know how my mum was like before going in NH, it was amazing when the nurses & carers said, it's not like Joan to be in bed or not eating, as she likes her food & is always active here. They will never see the other side of my mum, as she is so different with outsiders. But on the other hand, I'm so glad she is different in there as she looks so much better, than she did, apart from yesterday. More importantly, I know she is safe there, as if that had happened when she was living on her own, she wouldn't have told me & I would have only found out when looking for her dirty washing.
