a warning

so sorry to be late in looking at all your lovely art, My mother has been admitted to hospital after suffering a small bleed in her stomach caused they think through one of her tablets, she also had a bad fall over 5 months ago, in which she was taken to A & E, she smashed her eye badly then and had severe concussion, she also and had xrays and scans and was told it would take time, I have kept on taking her back to the docs and hospital as her eye and brow was droopy and she still has bruising appearing now, well today, once they got her to a bed and the doctor came, he went mad about this bruising and told me off for not taking her back sooner, it appears that she has a burst blood vessel above the eye and it has made a nerve ending stick to it making her eye droopy. and will need an op at a later date, he was horrified when i told him i have been taking her to her own doctors and several hospital visits since her fall as i felt something more was wrong, it appears that this was ignored due to her age, and as you can imagine i am not a happy bunny. This doctor thinks a lot of things were not seen to because of her age.

Age should not matter to get the right treatment and i will be making sure this does not happen again, So a warning, if you have an elderly member to care for and you dont think their treatment is right, then please kick up a fuss, they deserve to be treated the same as anyone, dawnx
