God bless you Snood, you’re a great son and an incredible human being. Please take this opportunity to get plenty of rest and recharge your batteries; it is way past time to take care of the caretaker.
Putting on my retired physician(albeit pediatrician) hat, I would strongly recommend that you have the doctors review all of her meds, along with their potential interactions and side effects. Be sure to include over the counter and herbal meds. Her constipation and her hallucinations may(emphasis on “may”) be due to her meds. Also, ask for the names of some good local geriatric specialists. Yes, all adult primary care docs take care of elderly people but geriatric docs specifically train and specialize in the care of the elderly. Also be aware that many elderly people begin to hallucinate in the evening when they are in the hospital. This is called “sundowning” and it is far too common. I welcome you to Google it, and I tell you this not to be cruel but so that you are not further weirded out if this happens.
Also, it would not be a bad idea for her to have a rapid home Covid test five days after she gets home. Even in the pre-Covid days, hospitals were common places to get sick. Lastly, be aware that, when they send Momma Snood home, they will ask you to set up a followup visit with her primary. I apologize for being too obvious but you will have to see this person until Momma Snood gets an appointment to see somebody else. Obviously, easier said than done anywhere in the US, but I’m guessing that it’s even more difficult to arrange (for demographic reasons)in Florida.
I sincerely wish only the best things for you and Momma Snood in 2022. There has to be some positive karma out there waiting for you.
I do not believe in karma anymore
