Two nights in a row now, I’ve caught my mother sneaking food out of the fridge after midnight. (“I’m just so hungry!”) Her appetite actually returning is a good sign as far as I’m concerned. It may be sneaky, but it’s a good sign!
She still has the “leak,” but we’ve had a few follow-ups and she’s doing fine with the transfused blood and with the three (!) new medications. I had to pay $88 co-payment for the stuff to coat her stomach because the insurance (Medicare Part B pharmacy coverage) said it was “obsolete” and not on their silly list. But it IS working and is not provoking her stomach any more, so that’s why we’re using the “obsolete” stuff–she had a bad problem with the newer things.
Pills! The fewer I have to take, the better.
It has hit 101F or better for the past twenty days. This is ridiculous!
