Number nine.

Today we had our ninth, yes ninth, visit to the ER this year. That’s an average of just under 1.5 per month so far. Mom had just barely been out of hospital for a week.

Same story as last time: unresponsive, elevated blood pressure. All the tests (blood work, CT scan) check out okay. EKG was a little off, but not in a big way. Blood enzymes did not indicate a cardiac event.

The ER doc (same guy we had in April – good thing I keep notes) thinks she had a seizure. She was certainly acting like she had a seizure and nothing else was indicated.

I don’t know where we’ll go from here. It’s the uncertainty that gets to me. One thing for certain is we will have to be more proactive and involved in Mom’s health care, contrary to her previously stated wishes.
