MilliBr1 Posted September 20, 2005 Share Posted September 20, 2005 I came back to Toledo on Friday and while my family told me she was getting weaker I was suprised how weak she had gotten. Then today she was even weaker. The nurse said yes they noticed and that she had some conjestion. Said she talked to the nurse practioner and she order a chest x-ray. I said shouldn't we take her to the emergency room, but the nurse didn't feel it was necessary. This is were I could KICK MYSELF!!! Why do I always trust that these people know what is best!! Why am I so damn timid!!!! Thank goodness I called my sister. She came right over saw how she was and called her oncologist. They said get her to the emergency room. As of now they think she may have pneumonia and she is dehydrated. She did seem a bit better tonight once she was on the IV for awhile. What really irks me is the nurse at the home just wanted to assume it was the cancer progressing and didn't feel there was much we could do? We told her we don't know that! We don't know what is going on! And we want answers before we just give up!! Sorry to ramble I just get so angry! First at myself for always second guessing myself and not going with my gut. And secondly at some of the doctors and nurses we have had to deal with, I swear my mom seems to get her share of duds. Not all though, we have had some who have been wonderful. ones and I thank God for them. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
