Got Mum out of the nursing home 2 weeks ago to live with us. Hard work but so rewarding. Last week Mum got a urine infection but I think it was a 're flare up from the infection she had in th nursing home, and was not responding to antibiotics. Delirium set in and on Friday Mum got admitted to Cambridge hospital where she still is. Mum has also been treated for low haemoglobin and has had 2 units of blood and units of iron. Yesterday I went to visit and I could not believe it; Mum can speak again and she can smile. I asked the doctor why and he did not know other than maybe something to do with having a blood transfusion. The family are so happy and Mum said it is amazing to talk again. Can't stop smiling.
