A fitful night for mom

Mom slept on the recliner last night. She didn’t think she’d be ok to go into bed.

She slept ok from around 10 Pm until 4 AM.

Then she woke up feeling breathless. So she went on her oxygen.

She stayed on the oxygen for an hour and a half before falling back to sleep.

I came out to the kitchen at 6 AM to make a cup of tea and she said she didn’t hear me.

She woke up at 8 AM and since then she’s been back on her oxygen.

She needs to call the oxygen company first thing in the morning, and she also has to call the respiratory nurse.

She has to get a prescription from the respiratory nurse for more tanks of oxygen.

The company said they were only delivering 3 tanks, because she has the concentrator.

But she doesn’t find the concentrator to be good, since she got a new model.

She’s hoping that the respiratory nurse will write her a prescription for at least 12 tanks.

Each tank lasts for 3 hours.

I told mom to get a heating pad or a hot water bottle too and put it on her sore lung.

Its her right lung that is hurting her. That is where the pleurisy is.

I’ve been sitting with her for the last hour. But she said she’s ok and that I can go be on my laptop if I want to.

I need to run a nice bath soon. I feel like soaking in a hot bath.

I can only do that at my parents house, since I only have a shower at my house.

Please keep the prayers coming for my mom. It is going to take weeks for her to pull up from all of this.

I know pleurisy takes weeks to go.
