Hello everyone this is a difficult time for me and my family and I need some reassurance. My mom was taken by ambulance to the hospital on Thursday September 1, around 2am. My dad woke up to her barely being able to breathe and infection coming out of her mouth. We got to the hospital and it turns out she had a lot wrong. She has pneumonia, sepsis, dehydration, thyroid problem, and a UTI. They had to put her in a medically induced coma and put the tube down her throat so she could breath. She was in the coma from Thursday Sept. 1 until Monday Sept 5 around 10 am. She was trying to take the tube out of her throat the day before and she was waking up on her own since they didnt have her sedated as much at this point. They removed the tube and just put her on normal oxygen where she was able to breath on her own for the most part. On Monday she was weak but she could move her body, she was able to speak it was hard to understand her sometimes but I could figure out what she meant, the nurse's didn't want her talking however they wanted her voice to rest. We watched TV together she knew what show was on etc. I was there all day I left about 9:30pm Monday night told her I loved her she said it back. My dad calls me Tuesday morning and is a little concerned she wasn't acting like herself. I go to see her and she is just very spacey staring at the ceiling and can't focus on anyone or anything. She couldn't talk or move at all. Later in the day she had a seizure. We do believe it was due to her not having her Xanax medication she has been on for years. So they have given her 3 doses of Adivan at this point but she is still not acting like herself. She is still very spacey and like she is not even here with us anymore. She was able finally able to focus on me a couple of times and shake her head yes very slightly. I just don't understand how she was fine Monday and the following day she is this bad off. Does anyone have any experience with this?? We are so scared and don't know what more we can do.
