Well my blog entry is a sad one, my mum is currently a in patient of the Leicester Royal Infirmary she has been since 11th March 2016, and has been a patient of ward 37 where she has been getting better with up’s and down’s however over the last 24 hrs she has become quite poorly which has resulted in the Dr’s making the decission to move her to a high dependancey unit on ward 16 today 10th April 2016.
Mum is 73 years old she has AF, Secondary Heart Failure, CKD, and several other problems which for nearly 65 years have caused her no problems at all. As the older son i have been mums (Valerie Ann Finney) primary carer for the past 4 and half years i’ve seen the good days and bad days, i’ve enjoyed lots of fun times and lots of hard times to.
She says she is proud of my work as a hospital volunteer she says i care to much about others and let others walk all over me, but she knows i love what i do, she know’s i would like to become a HCA or something within the hospitals instead of working on computers all my life.
Currently mum is holding her own her kidneys are only functioning at 11% her potassium is 6.3 her sodium is 131 her Sugar levels were 33.9 she went for a CT Scan of her head at 11am and transfered to ACB on AMU ward 16 at 12.30pm today.
Things aren’t looking good from my view but dr’s say different and althought its early days they think she will be ok, Something tells me she is going to fight hard!
