My mom is 69 and she went into theatre 2 months ago to do a knee replacement. All seemed fine until she complained of pain in the other knee ( the one with a year old replacement). she was rushed to hospital as she showed signs of confusion. After tests, she was diagnosed with sepsis and kidney failure. She has been in ICU for 3 weeks now and I'm not sure if she can even hear us. The bacterial sepsis has cleared and she developed a fungal one, probably from the ICU stay. She was intubated and later had a tracheostomy.
last night I noticed she was bleeding out the mouth and noticed she was grinding her teeth and her eyes are half open.
What is happening?? she is being weaned off the ventilator, the sedatives have been stopped but she is still not awake, its 4 days now.
Im worried sick.
