My wife had a fall on Monday and I took her to the ER and they transferred us to their downtown hospital because there was signs of previous bleeding in her brain, but not due to this fall. She has been very anxious pacing the house and walking in circles.
The initial indication from the staff was that we would be dismissed from the ER that day. We however were not discharged from the ER on Monday as we originally expected. We spent the night in the ER, which was terrible. From that stay I can confirm that Houston is a violent and dangerous place. It is worse than “heaping burning coals on your enemy’s head” just in case you have some enemies. The medical staff wanted to continue to monitor and try to identify the cause of her fall despite my explanation of her underlying condition(corticobasal degenertion)causing the fall, so we were admitted and were in the hospital through Thursday. They finally believed me that her condition caused the fall and worked on making my wife more comfortable. The hospital support staff helped me finalize hospice arrangements for our home. I knew that I needed to do this before her fall, but this has been the impetus to actually do so. The hospital stay was difficult for us both and I believe that She is more comfortable at home.
So just stared home hospice care last night. Unfortunately her hospital stay has caused her to be bed ridden. Now she paces with her legs in bed. Kicking constantly.
