5 weeks later here we are and my mother is now in a rehabilitation center. Upmc Mercy here in Pittsburgh. I hear its one of the best. Therapists say she is working hard and since they only have to work with her muscles her recovery may not be that long. Ever since they took the tube out her oxygen has been at 100% (meanwhile they wanted to do a trach) also the delerium part has finally went away. Now that the hard part is over I'm looking back and i really believe a mistake has been made. Shes in a spinal cord injury rehab and people there have been in serious accidents.. Then you go around and ask what happened to my mom and all she can say is she had an asthma attack... How do you go in for an asthma attack and wake up 17 days later with a tube down your throat and not able to move at all? I honestly believe she was over medicated. At one point she was on a paralyzing medication, high dosages of fentanyl and propofol and also versad & lets not forget the 60mg of steriods every 6 hours. I know they were able to control her asthma but my mind still wonders if they did something wrong..
