A Caregiver’s Story…. In Sickness

Mom has a full-fledged mega bug and her fever has gone as high as 100.7

She is losing her strength and won’t/can’t walk to the toilet so she is using the portable commode to poop and throw up.  When she vomits, she is only puking bile because there was no food in her stomach to throw up. She can’t even keep water down.  It seems I can handle cleaning up puke, but not poop.

Despite this bug, the switch is still on. The new equipment is scheduled to arrive at 5 o’clock and the hospice equipment is departing the following day.

    Hope she is getting better. I notice with Mom, the slightest infection tips her into confusion and severe weakness.

    I hope she is feeling better and you’re rested. Sounds very exhausting, emotionally and physically.
