Or weeks, or months, or years? Sigh.
I am my parents care giver so I rent a room from them in order to be there in case of an emergency. (i once upon a time was a home health nurse). This morning was one of those times. Mom woke me up.at 6:15 this morning. She couldn't get dad up. (he was supposed to be at the doctors for lab work at 6:30). I couldn't wake him either. Just had to hold onto him because he kept trying to get out of bed. Mom called 911. I was sure it was either diabetic shock or a stroke but I couldn't let go of him to check. Thankfully the ambulance was there in only 2 minutes. His blood sugars were 32. So they were able to give him sugar and an IV to get him back.
Can we go back to before my wreck and have a do over? It seems that since August I have been running on adrenaline and pain. Ugh.
Thankfully dad seems to be ok. Made him breakfast and now I am sitting at an appointment with mom. My brother was going to go sit with dad but he had a flat on his way over. Our preacher is going to stop by and visit so at least someone will be there. Dad refused to go to the hospital - and the EMT told him that as long as he are and monitored His blood sugars he Would be fine and that if he went to ER that's all they would do. So.. I get to put my nursing cap back on.
It is definitely going to be a long day.
