Mom’s Home!

I’m frazzled. I went to school in Turlock for several years. This week I got lost trying to find the hospital THREE TIMES and got lost trying to get home TWICE.

It’s only Thursday.

Mom and I agreed on one thing – she needs a new PCP. She’s been going to the same doctor for years. She gets regular check ups. She’s been complaining of chronic fatigue and stuff like getting out of breath from routine things like vacuuming for at least two years. She had blockage in three arteries, including one that was nearly 100% blocked. He never caught it.

He never ran any tests or gave her a referral to a specialist. One time last year when she complained he told her “Well, you are 80 years old.” I guess he assumed she was just a whiner.

God only knows what would have happened if she had gone to see him instead of going to the emergency room.

I will be kinda busy for the next couple weeks at least. Mom can’t drive and I’m not gonna leave her by herself all day and all night. She needs help with cooking and cleaning. She’s almost as upset about the no driving thing as the no caffeine or alcohol instruction.

I have to take her to her hair appointment tomorrow. One the bright side we’ll be watching SF Giants games together.

I want to thank everybody for your thoughts and prayers. Y’all almost made me feel warm and fuzzy.

I hate feeling warm and fuzzy.

    Good! We achieved the desired results! Good move on the PCP.

  2. DeniseVB says:

    myiq ! I have no clue how to unpublish ! I hit every button on the dashboard and it’s still there. Panic!!!!

  3. Dora says:

    Oh, go ahead and feel warm and fuzzy. Just for a little while. 🙂

    I’m so glad your Mom is home. And I am so glad for your Mom that she has you as a son. All mothers are not that fortunate.

    God bless you both.

    • Myiq2xu says:

      Flattery will get you nowhere.

      But don’t stop trying.

      • Somebody says:

        Oh please, you know you’re a good son!

        I’m glad your mom is home and doing OK, more than likely her current limitations are just temporary, or at least some of them…….so the two of you get a little more quality time together.

        Good decision on the PCP, we had similar issues with my MIL and changed her PCP. She lived another 13 years, if she’d stayed with the other doctor…..six months maybe a year.

        100% blockage, wow! I’m betting in a month or so your mom is feeling much better. Look out she may run circles around you!!!

        Enjoy the Giants games, in fact cherish watching them with your mom. Oh how I miss watching all kinds of sports with my father, that was our thing.

  4. I’m so glad to hear your mom is home. Her PCP sounds terrible. Maybe he has a medical marijuana script for himself? Perhaps overwhelmed by Obamacare? Whatever leads to his under par performance, I’m glad you both think she needs a new one. I hope her insurance let’s her change.

    I’ll pick up some posting slack on Sunday, and try to work out a post or two for next week as well. Thank goodness for Denise. VM could probably help as well?

    • DeniseVB says:

      Awww, thanks. It’s no biggy (I can’t even figure out how to post pics, but youtube and twitter are my friends). I just like helping keep the family together😀

      I think VM’s getting her daughter ready for college now ?

  5. lildoggy4u says:

    I’ll add that thank god your mom found out what the issue was with her health. Her old doctor probably would have prescribed an antidepressant for her fatigue. There’s way too much of that trial and error to save a buck.
    My mom complained to her doc for a long time that she didn’t feel well. He told her to see a therapist since he didn’t “see” anything wrong with her.
    Finally, blood in her sputum showed up and it was well past any time she could have been helped from the cancer that was discovered. I’ll never forgive that doctor.

    Murdoch’s Little Princess Retreats To The Hills – Amid Backlash Megyn Kelly Takes 1.5 Week Vacation…

    Last night on Megyn Kelly’s Fox TV show she announced a 1.5 week vacation returning on 8/24. Lil Miss stated she hadn’t taken a vacation in six months. Of course the 8-day memorial day break, and 6-day July Fourth break, don’t count as vacation for the intense 4 day work-week schedules of a princess pundit, or something.

      Just think of them as clumps of tissue.

    • Ferrell’s wife, Alexis Templeton, was charged with misdemeanour assault for allegedly punching the driver through her vehicle’s window…

      I thought I saw people reaching into her car as I watched the video Monday night. A mob around the car and people reaching in absolutely justifies fleeing through the crowd.

      • leslie says:

        You and I saw the same thing. And I hope the 2 who were charged get a real penalty. I am so tired of the aggressive bullying and now physical attacks by people who won’t take responsibility for their own behavior. They blame everyone else for everything.

      • lyn says:

        When they mobbed her vehicle, the driver had every right to do what she did. Remember Bernie Goetz.

    • leslie says:

      Just saw this and thought I might add it to the thread.

  8. Kathy says:

    Just caught up reading about your mom–and, yes, thank goodness you took her to the ER. I’m glad things are looking up. I had a similar issue with my PCP a few months ago and love my new one who is so much better. Looking back, my old PCP visits seemed to be mostly about him. Any complaint led to him telling me about his problems…..guess that should have been a clue. Get some rest, Klown.

  9. DeniseVB says:

    So glad mom’s okay! Now the fun part begins, adjusting to the “new normal” in your daily routines and YES, find a new PCP ! I’d recommend mine, WebMD, “he’s” pretty good at ruling out gas and other upper/lower G.I. problems. 😉

    • lyn says:

      I had chest pain and I was near fainting on Monday, but my doctor told me not to worry if it’s not happening when I exercise.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Scary, you okay now ?

        Is Obamacare that bad that he couldn’t whip out a referral or call for some diagnostic tests to rule out something serious ?

        My neighbor had a stomach pain attack so bad (worse than childbirth is how she described it) she couldn’t move and was just able to call 911, ambulance took her to the ER. They ran every test available with every piece of equipment running scans from head to toe, and threw in a colonoscopy for good measure (just an enema blast, no prep). She was fine.

      • votermom says:

        Lyn, is there any chsnce you might be anemic?

        • lyn says:

          I don’t know. I have a blood test scheduled for October, but I may have it done sooner. I have had other episodes where the pain goes up to my jaw, and I’ve told my doctor that. They happen when I’m sitting down; I was getting my hair cut on Monday when the last episode occurred. I think I’m OK, Denise. LOL. My PCP did mention the EKG and stress test but didn’t think they were necessary. All this was over the phone, because I called her when I got home since she saw me for my annual exam last week.

          • votermom says:

            What will the blood tests look for?

          • leslie says:

            You’re scaring me, lyn. go to the doc, now. Don’t come back until you have some tests. You can post comments from your phone.

          • lyn says:

            I don’t have a phone. The blood test is for the normal stuff. My cholesterol is 213, but I’m not on any drugs. I am going to fill out a new patient packet today, and I will mention my issue. I’ll call the BC/BS 24/7 nurse now.

          • lyn says:

            (I don’t have a smart phone.)

          • DeniseVB says:

            For grins, go to the WebMD or Mayo Clinic websites. Not to replace your doctor, but they do a pretty good symptom check with a good list of what to tell your doctor. A couple of years ago I had abdominal pain that was more annoying than concerning, because I had no fever, vomiting or bloody stools (or from my wherever). One of the sites said “increase fiber” with a supplement like Metamucil. CURED !

          • DeniseVB says:

            VM, a RBC would rule out anemia, a WBC would rule out infection. Simple in house tests. I’m not a doctor, but I did work for a veterinarian. First rule of Vet Club, if a pet is lethargic or seems to be in “pain”………run that blood panel ! Wondering if these basic diagnositc tests aren’t in human “clinics” ?

          • lyn says:

            Just called the nurse hotline and I was told to see a doctor within 24 hours. An urgent care office is nearby, and I’m going this a.m. Thank you for the nudge!❤

          • Myiq2xu says:

            I don’t want to scare you but you sound a lot like my mom.

          • leslie says:

            I’m so relieved! Please let us know when you get home. Fingers crossed…❤

        • lyn says:

          Went to the immediate care clinic and had all the tests–EKG, chest X-ray and blood. Everything was normal, including the heart enzymes in the blood. He suggested Prilosec for two weeks. I am going to leave my doctor.

  10. DandyTIger says:

    Glad your Mom is home and is fighting the new normal. I’d worry if she wasn’t. But being by herself for too long or driving doesn’t sound safe. Sorry Mom. And agree that the PCP needs to be fired. If you’re feeling warm and fuzzy, watch an Obama speech. Cures that right away.

  11. piper says:

    Busy day for me so I can’t stay. So happy that your Mom is coming home and has a caring and compassionate son. We’ll keep the place going – lots of good writers here.

  12. piper says:

    Obamacare has been a disaster from day one. My doctor has turned from being a hands on doc to a typist – her laptop gets the treatment not me. Time for a change but am a bit lazy since I have no outward symptoms except lunacy which gallops in my family.

    • lyn says:

      Yep. That happened to me at my annual well-woman exam last week. The doctor spent more time asking questions and typing than she did examining me.

      • leslie says:

        But them’s the rulz, lyn. My PCP is now complaining about bronco and his rules. She had defended him and his goals from the get-go – until they began to affect her and her work.
        She is quite possibly figuring out why I never supported him and most likely never will. She couldn’t see that he is a puppet without any moral/ethical fiber to him. (But I digress.)

        • lyn says:

          It was the same for my eye exam, but the optometrist had an assistant do the computer input.

        • DeniseVB says:

          A good friend sold her pediatric practice when Ocare passed. It would require her to cut her time with newborn well baby checks to 10 minutes instead of the 30 minutes she scheduled. That was more for the new parents, but hey, profits and stuff. She’s now off with Doctors Without Borders where she feels more helpful to the children.

          Ocare sucks in that the quality of our health system is putting profits over lives. But HEY, the left is bragging MORE people are insured !! Argh.

      • Myiq2xu says:

        How many times did Obama talk about how much money we would save with electronic medical records? Welcome to #progress.

    • foxyladi14 says:

      I hate his laptop.
      I used to get attention. Now it does. 😡

    • 49erDweet says:

      Our PCP retired and moved so forced us to find another. Best thing recently that happened to both us! ☺ A fresh approach is a good thing.

    • 1539days says:

      Ever see the movie Idiocracy? EMR and Common Core are designed to train everyone to do things the same way because it makes data entry easier. That way, even the most stupid people can run the machines and undefinable qualities like innovation and intuition can be eliminated.

  13. votermom says:

    I am sure there are better PCPs out there. Maybe you or her BFF can help interview new ones?

    Btw, feeling warm and fuzzy sounds like you might have a furry mold problem.😛

  14. abc says:

    Yes, warm and fuzzy. Now that sounds serious!

    As the rift in ideology becomes wider, I visit less, but I’ve come back more in the last few days lately because of your mom! Glad she’s on the road of recovery. I am sure that your many good qualities come straight from her😉. Now you rest and relax. You have to feel well too.

    • elliesmom says:

      I would guess the rift in ideology isn’t as wide you might think. It’s just that mapquest has a lot of routes to get most places that are a long distance away, and we all get to pick the route we think is the most efficient. But I bet we’d all like to end up in the same place. It’s easy to confuse methodology with ideology.

    • DeniseVB says:

      What EM said, plus you know we’re all Happy Warriors here, we don’t like anybody (/sarc) but we love each other. 😉 It’s sweet you support our “Mom”, that was nice.

      Yesterday, even Mika jumped on Dean for his current defense of Hillary’s email and other “things that he would criticize if it were Dick Cheney”.

    • leslie says:

      I just watched this clip and am feeling so frustrated by it all. Mika says “If Hillary is the candidate, I’ll vote for her”. This, despite all the angst Mika is demonstrating throughout this clip. Others are treating it as if it were a great inconvenience or mistake, or lapse in judgment, and Hillary handled it “poorly” because she was shielded from it by her assistants. This email server was “WIPED CLEAN” . Sure, now it’s “transparent”.

      They are going around in circles there. They’re digging a hole big enough to swallow a Boeing 777. It would be a blessing and relief for someone to say “this is a mess because Hillary is unscrupulous”. And you have no idea just how bad I feel to say this. . . Well, some of you do.

  16. Myiq2xu says:

    The first thing mom said this morning: “Could you make me a cup of coffee?”

    “But the doctor said . . .”

    “Just make the damn coffee!”

    • votermom says:

      hah! That would be me if anyone tried to cut me off from coffee.

      Maybe you could wean her off caffeine via half-caf coffee?

    • lyn says:

      All of the above.😉

    • elliesmom says:

      If caffeine is going to kill her right after she drinks it, argue with her and win. If drinking coffee with caffeine is going to shorten her life by a couple of days 15 years down the road and not having regular coffee is going to make those 15 years less happy, then it’s her decision as long as she knows what the consequences are.

    • mcnorman says:

      She’s already feeling better. ;D

    • It’d probably be worse for her to just quit cold. Best to ween her down. If she won’t go for decaf, then take VM’s suggestion, or negotiate with her to moderate her usage slowly. Caffeine is a serious drug, man.

    • Constance says:

      Glad you Mom is home again and feeling feisty. When the Drs told my Dad to cut back or stop his drinking, pipe smoking or eating he would always say “That won’t make me live longer it will just make it seem longer!” He had his share of medical complaints but lived to be 92 and while he did take his medicine on schedule he never took lifestyle improvements too seriously. Be sure to take some time and really enjoy those baseball games together. I would give anything for one more weekend sitting around with my Dad.

      • Myiq2xu says:

        I seriously doubt that a cuppa joe in the morning and/or a glass of vino in the evening is gonna kill her. The driving thing, otoh . . .

        Mom quit smoking nearly 50 years ago.

    • 1539days says:

      Sneak her some decaf and make her think you make lousy coffee.

    Sigh. EE’s mea culpa over Ben Carson. (I never went to Redstate over any one candidate, but the Carson diss bugged me, a little) Carson was never on the original schedule months ago when people signed up and the event sold out. Had Erick only asked Carson to replace the hole he created “disinviting” Trump, the Tailgate event would have been over the moon! I think Ben would have obliged!

  22. helenk3 says:

    So glad your Mom is home. Enjoy the time with her.

  23. DeniseVB says:

    FFS, Mitt was right again. What about the poor kids Dems ? Defund PBS and NPR NOW! Oh, and keep Cspan, they never ask me for guilt money for tote bags during stupid telethons.

    • elliesmom says:

      From what the article says, PBS will get to run Sesame Street after HBO gets its money for it. Not that I disagree with defunding NPR and PBS. I was all for public support for them until I went to their copyright school for teachers and found out showing their content in my classroom violated copyright laws. If it belongs to the public, it should be a place teachers can go to get classroom materials for free. NASA and NOAA provide all of the things they produce along with supplemental classroom materials to any of us, not just teachers, free of charge because they say “the American people have already paid for it”. Likewise, the National Park Service. Since then PBS has made more of its content available, but they still charge $50 for some of the episodes of NOVA and Nature, and it’s illegal for a teacher to make copies of the show herself and show them in the classroom.

  24. Gram Krakka says:

    Myiq, so relieved for you and your mom that she is home and feeling feisty. She is blessed to have a son who can help her navigate the medical care system. Usually in situations like hers, she should qualify for some follow up home visits by an occupational therapist to determine how her home environment can be modified to accommodate her needs and keep her independent as possible. Things like shower seat, long handled grabber for shelves and floor, long handled shoe horn, etc.

    At age 91 while being evaluated for a knee replacement, blood work revealed that my mom’s kidneys were failing, probably due to decades of taking anti-inflammatory meds for arthritis. She decided that she didn’t want to do dialysis after consulting a hospital diatician who basically told her that “if you bite on food and it tastes good, spit it put cause it is bad for your kidneys.” While hospitalized with the start of congestive heart failure, mom told the kidney Doc that she hadn’t expected to live to be 90 and she wanted some salt on her food even if it shortened her life. I was willing to take her to dialysis every other day if she wanted to take that route, but supported her decision to forego dialysis and the potential life lengthening diet in favor of eating what she liked.

    When she declined dialysis mom had herself transferred to a hospice bed in the hospital. Upon arriving at the hospital and learning what had transpired in my short absence I quizzed her PCP and kidney Doc about her prognosis. Without dialysis she would most likely succumb to congestive heart failure due to fluid retention. She would be given morphine to deal with the symptoms of CHF. In other words the morphine would basically knock her out. I then asked for an alternative. If given strong diuretics to keep the CHF at bay, even though this would cause the kidneys to work harder and hasten their failure, would she be more alert than she would be if given morphine? The answer was probably yes, but as the kidneys neared total failure she would sleep more.

    At that point I made the decision for her, with her Doc’s approval, that her quality of life would be better if she could avoid CHF. I hastened over to the hospice unit and told her that she wasn’t ready for the bone yard quite yet and that she was going back to her assisted living apartment. I basically moved in with her for about the next four months. We celebrated her 92nd birthday by going to Cincinnati’s Flower Show along the shore of Lake Como at Coney Island. Mom even drove her scooter around the show. A month later she was gone. She passed away on the day of the summer solstice. She was physically active and mentally alert until one week before passing.

    • leslie says:

      I don’t even know how to respond, but I want you to know that your comment touched me deeply and I feel that your mother was blessed by you and by your love for her. I am sitting here with tears running down my face from your poignant story. What a wonderful way for her to spend her final months. . . with you and doing the things she loved.

    • elliesmom says:

      I can relate to your story. My dad nursed my mom through her cancer treatment, and at her request the doctors tried everything they could to prolong her life. She was miserable, but fighting, through it all. When he received his own cancer diagnosis, he sat down with me and said he was going to put up a reasonable battle against the disease, but the quality of his life was going to take precedence over the quantity of his life. He had a full and happy two years with some time outs for some radiation treatments to slow the cancer’s growth, but no chemo and no surgery. He maintained his rather large garden the last summer of his life. He had a heart attack in the fall, but with some assistance he maintained his independence until the last week of his life. He toted his oxygen tank along to Thanksgiving dinner. When I began talking about Christmas plans, he asked me about my memories of the last Christmas, which had been a really nice celebration. I know now he was telling me I had already spent my last Christmas with him. He died the first week in December. Could a more aggressive cancer treatment plan have extended his life a bit? Maybe, but it was his decision, and I never fought it.

  25. mcnorman says:

    You better take care of your mum. We only get one chance so do well. Ahh, you are a warm and fuzzy kinda klown.

  26. DeniseVB says:

    What a beautiful thread this has become. Enjoying all the shares of medical miracles and fails, learning from all of you, priceless.

  27. DeniseVB says:

    Moving along, what’s up with this?

  28. smile says:

    Myiq, I have been dealing with something similar with a close family member since December, but actually it had been going on much earlier than that. The PCP basically just ignored that he was getting tired just walking 20 yards since spring of 2014. But come December 2014, it crescendoed to becoming very obvious that something was very wrong – shortness of breath walking 5 yards, having to use wheelchair, feeling confused, swollen legs (edema), and such – but PCP kept telling that it was just winter allergies, it was his age, this is normal, etc. After 3 visits to the PCP over 2 months, I finally took him to the ER room and he had to be admitted to the hospital for heart failure. So here are some things that have helped me to look after him, and hopefully this will help with adjusting to your mom’s new life.
    Keep a list of symptoms related to her heart condition on her and on your refrigerators and review them occasionally. If she has these symptoms, take her to the ER or call her cardiologist depending on the severity of symptoms. My family member was assigned a cardiologist after his heart failure, and he and his staff have been angels. And yes, get a different PCP since it is obvious s/he does not know to recognize an emergency condition. Also don’t go to the PCP for heart related issues, they don’t know anything about it, really. That is why there are specialized medical fields today. Even after all that we went through, his PCP interfered with the cardiologist’s meds without it being his business. I advised the cardio, and the cardiologist put the meds back the way it was originally. Now I have transferred him to a different PCP. (This was at the VA, so you know the system.)
    Stopping coffee is important, as it interferes with the electrical signals in the heart that cause the heart to beat regularly. We experimented with different decaf coffee brands till he liked one, and then we stuck with it, for him it was Maxwell house decaf. You will waste some money with the unused decaf, but don’t throw it away. Because after some time, she will want to try a different brand, and you will already have the unused brands at home.

    Giving up driving is the hardest. Many of her meds will cause drowsiness and you will notice that she may have moments of mental confusion. Reason with her why she can’t drive. Ask her if she can live with the knowledge that she caused an accident because she could not react fast enough or dozed off and as a result someone’s legs had to be amputated. Could she live with the anger and hated that will be directed toward her from the injured party and the financial ruin it will cause her and her family. You will have to reason often because of forgetfulness and a loss of logical skills. She may sneak out and drive anyway. Be vigilant, without making her feel you are spying. I am still working on my family member. I will let him driving up and down his street with me in the car. Then when he returns home, he has to nap because he is so tired from the mental exertion of driving one block.

    Call her insurance and increase her liability coverage on her auto policy to the max available if it has not already been done. Liability is very cheap in California and in most states. Uping it to $300k/500k/100k will probably cost her anywhere from $10 to 25 per month, depending upon her driving history. You can even up to $1mil/1mil/300k if affordable. You can never have too much liability coverage – this coverage is how you protect your financial assets. Increase it for yourself too and have your children increase it for themselves too, because it is so cheap and gives peace of mind.

    Your mom will need you for more and more help, but she most likely will not ask for it because she will not know how poorly she is doing. She may start skipping showers because of how exhausting it is to bathe or due to fear of falling. Other activities, like eating, washing dishes, doing laundry, may get skipped over due to lack of interest, difficulty, and such. Keep a vigilant eye. Rearrange the furniture so that the things she needs are right next to her, to where she sits and sleeps and eats, so that the risk of falling, anxiety in answering to the phone, etc., are minimized. Find things that don’t take much time to cook, but are not pre-packaged as they are loaded with sodium which is not good for the heart.

    Exercise is very important, since the heart is a muscle and it gets better and stronger when exercised. She may need a walker and a wheelchair eventually. You can order them from Walmart online, they are excellent and only $150 each. Maybe her medicare will pay for these too.

    My family member qualified for hospice care, so we took it. The kind where they come to our home, not the kind where you send her to their facility. What hospice did was that they reviewed his meds and eliminated 2 meds, one for his diabetes (he had a mild case) and his cholestrol, since both of these meds are for long term benefits only. They also brought in the oxygen machine because he was out of breath whenever exerting himself, like walking, eating, etc. His condition has improved, and if he continues as he is, he will be dismissed from hospice care by December. Meaning that they don’t think he will only live for 6 months – that is the condition required in order to stay in hospice care.

    Now the most important thing. Make sure all of her legal papers are in order. Her will, her Power of Attorney, her medical Power of attorney, her living will, and pre-arrange her funeral/cremation. The last one will feel icky when doing it, but once it is done, all can rest assured that the unpleasant but necessary part is done according to her wishes and desires, and you can all relax afterwards with the peace of knowing all is in order. You are an attorney, so you know where and what needs done. If you need to save dollars, there are Paralegal services available who will do the legal papers at very little cost (you may already know about this, so this is for all the readers at this blog).

    She will also struggle with her feelings and emotions, and may go through a few of the 5 stages of denial and grief. Be strong and try to not take it personally. It will be hard, but keep forgiving, if and when she goes through the anger stage.

    Much more, myiq, but this will get things started. Sorry for any presumptions I have made, and for the very long comment. Keeping your mom, you, and family in my prayers.

        Just one more thing about the pre-arrangement of the funeral/cremation. Make sure you go with a funeral home that has been in business in the same spot for 20-30 years. There have been a few scams where new funeral homes spring up, they do these pre-arrangements, then pack up and leave to another state, keeping all your money with them and you are left with no pre-arrangement and have lost your money. This was on 60 minutes many years ago.

    Just perusing Twitter and found this link to another article about the EPA / Animas River disaster. This entire fiasco/disaster really is causing my head to pound.
