Just a week after Mother’s Day, I had to rush Mom to the Cook Hospital. She was suddenly vomiting and her stomach hurt. As she’d already had two bowel blockages, I was afraid I knew why she was sick. And, unfortunately, I was right. She has another bowel blockage…probably from the three surgeries she’s had in three years.
She was ambulanced to Hibbing, where she is now, waiting to see if it might clear up by itself within 24 hours. If not, she has to have surgery, which at 92, she’s not a real good candidate. So I’m running back and forth to the hospital, a 30 mile one way trip and trying to get things under control here. I’m real tired with all the emotional stress and driving. Sometimes taking care of an elderly parent is tough, but worth the bad days. I’ll keep you posted.
