Not sure if she used a tunnel or went over the wire but my Mum is out of hospital – Yay!

Ah nuts! My mother was promised she would be discharged today but the hospital couldn’t sort the damned paperwork out …bugger!
My Mum gets discharged today – Yay!!
My fabulous octogenarian Mum looked so much better this evening when I visited – colour in her cheeks and very chirpy.
She’s been up and about and has been told she might get out of hospital on Monday!
Better make some plans!
My lovely 80 year old mother has been released from the High Dependency Ward onto a normal surgical ward and although she remains on oxygen and morphine she’s making good progress and I am very happy about that!
Update on my Mum’s progress:
She’s doped up on Morphine patches, A self-admin morphine drip, Paracetamol & Tramadol.
She’s alternating an oxygen mask with a nebuliser.
Her oxygen levels are good just now and she’s been put on antibiotics as a preventative measure.
Staff are pleased with her progress and keeping a close eye on her as she’s obviously a trouble maker!!
So here it is: my lovely Mum fell at 4am this morning breaking 6 ribs and puncturing a lung.
She lay there until 10:30 before help arrived
She’s comfortable in ITU now but still in a lot of pain – fingers crossed for a speedy recovery!
