Mom's Getting Better

SUMMARY: Being off drugs helps; being in hospital helps.

Sisters report that, two days after being taken off the drugs I was most suspicious of, her voice has come back and she seems to be mentally completely Mom again. Plus now she's in the hospital getting IV fluids and meds to deal with some other snowballing nasty side effects. I'm hoping she'll be home again within a day or so and completely back to normal. More tests are pending.

Drugs she was taken off of were Vicodin and oxybutynin (thanks, dad).


  1. Ugh, Vicodin is nasty stuff if you don't tolerate it well. I was not 'mentally complete' when I was on it either. Glad to hear she's doing better.

  2. w00f's happy to hear ur mom is doing better, heehee as for rocky, he's trying to figure out if hes a real dog or not..

    b safe,

  3. Hope your mom is home safe and sound soon.

  4. Glad to hear your Mom is better and I hope she's home soon.


  5. Glad to hear your mom is getting better. Hope she just gets better and better!
