Mom received the results of her x-rays. The doctor believes her pain is from compression fractures to her spine and arthritis. The doctor gave her a pain shot, pain medication and is sending her to a pain management clinic. She will have another x-ray and an MRI to verify the diagnosis. They are not sure if the compression fractures were a result of her fall last April...but it is a definite possibility.
I spoke with her the last couple days, she was having a rough time with the pain medication making her feel nauseated.
Dad called Mom again.... (unbelievable!)
" I wanted to tell you some important things..."
"Big things are happening around here..."
"I really am happy here and I feel GREAT!"
Mom started to tell Dad she has been nauseated from the pain medication....and Dad cut her off and continued to go on about all the things he is in charge of...
Mom asked who helped him dial the phone.
"I don't dial, I just punch in the numbers on the buttons..." Mom was shocked to hear this, not sure to believe him, as he could not push the buttons on their home phone prior to going into the nursing home.
Mom could hear someone talking in the back ground...
"Don't interrupt me, I am on the phone..."
The phone was disconnected.
Will have to call again and have the staff find out if Dad is calling Mom on his own...
