mamasbabygirl Posted February 3, 2006 Share Posted February 3, 2006 Or do I just need to settle down? I tell you, maybe I am just mean or high maintenance, but my mom's health (or lack thereof) is still important! When I called mom this morning, she complained of a headache all over her head, which is not normal for her. She has not had one headache since being diagnosed with brain mets. It is so debilitating she is not going to therapy at rehab today. So, I told her to call the nurse right away bc the rehab Dr. just upped her Lovenox due to a blood clot found in her leg this week. The nurse practitioner came in and said they would watch it. I called back to mom's room and SF called me "Dr." in a very condescending way. I yelled and hung up. I called the nurses station and talked to the NP to explain this is very unusual and I think they need to scan her ASAP bc of the threat of brain bleeding. She said she'd call the Dr. I am at work and just got a call from SF on my voice mail that they are taking mom to the hospital for a CT scan and he reassured me she'd be fine. I pray that everything is OK or at least fixable for mom. If they have to stop the Lovenox, are there alternatives? She was on coumadin forever when she got her first clot, plus it was very hard to regulate for her. I need to try to stay a step ahead of the game. Just venting really. I feel like mom is so far gone that people have become apathetic to things that happen. Maybe I need to join the boat and calm down, but I would never forgive myself. JEESH!!!!
