*sigh* My mom just went to the ER in an ambulance. I was up in my room using my I pod when a guy bursts in my room and says your mother has been hollering for you and you didn't answer. She's been sick all day but I thought it was a reaction to a new med. The guy's attitude sucked. He acted like everything was my fault because I wasn't taking good care of my mother. I'm getting tired of being a caretaker who can't ever do anything right. She tells them she hasn't eaten all day. Well, she ate a bite of hotdog, 2 saltine crackers, a bite of a snickers and a half cup of chamomile tea. I can't cram food down her throat for crying out loud and I told the guy that. Not to mention that she never checks her blood sugar.

Did she have a portable phone by her side? Why didn't she try to call you on your cell or something, if she managed to call 911? I can't believe the EMS didn't even offer to take you to the hospital with her (if you wanted to go).

She doesn't have a phone by her bed. We do have a cordless phone though. She got up and called EMS herself. She wouldn't want me to go to the hospital with her anyway because there isn';t anything I could do anyway. So if they release her in the morning she's going to call me and have me call our cousin to pick her up. Why I have to be the middleman I have no idea.
I had my bedroom door closed and I was in my pajamas. Thank goodness I wasn't sitting on the pot! OMG that would be so embarrassing!

Dramaqueen, that sucks. Hope your mother didnt had anything serious and she pulls through. Please tell her to take her of herself better and dont blame yourself for what happened. I know how older people can be stubborn sometimes.

Personal anti rant: I am the happy cook of 6 recepies of frozen food! That is an achievement on itself because i never had cooked a single thing before coming to Stockholm!

... I'm a person who avoids the hospital. Even when I SHOULD I WON'T. I'll even work myself into the ground before taking a day off

She called at 6 this morning and told me she had gastroenteritis, which is the stomach flu. She's dehydrated and they have her on IV's for that. I have no idea when she'll be home. They also gave her something for nausea. Thanks, guys.

From what I've seen of gastroenteritis, it isn't that serious. She just needs to keep up on the liquids and eat healthy foods, which will be good for her in the long run anyway.

Carafate and Phenergen usually a medication given for nausea.
