Our mom underwent extensive surgery to remove infected bone in her foot due to osteomyelitis. Mom was remitted to hospital on 1.8.2021 for high potassium and while in hosptial fell and split open her wound/fractured bone
Mom is a severe Type II.diabetic and has been dealing with diabetic ulcers on her feet for over 3 years now. Right after Thanksgiving 2020 she was admitted for a severely infected ulcer on her right bottom heal. Over the last month she has received wound care and antibiotics to heal but unfortunately it was not successful. On Jan. 5th 2021 she underwent surgery to remove infected bone that had turned to osteomyelitis. Surgery went well and mom was able to come home. Mariah and I have caring for mom at her home around the clock. Sunday morning Mom was feeling ill and it continued to worsen through the day. After speaking to her dr, I took her to Methodist West ER where she was admitted for extremely high potassium levels. Today Jan 12th 2021, Mom fell in the hospital while trying to transport herself to the bathroom even though she was a fall risk. Mom's foot was split open and she fractured a bone in her foot as well. Mom laid there excessively bleeding for 20 minutes before someone heard her yelling and her call light had been on the whole time and was not answered She was taken for emergency second surgery as they could not get the excessive bleeding to stop. This has set our Mom back on her road to recovery. To say we are furious an understatement.
Many people also know that Mom has had temporary custody of Oliver for over a year now. During this time he has been in my care and he is struggling to adjust without grandma.
Mariah and I have been handling all her care, sacrificing our families, work etc to be there for our Mom any way we can.
Any help or works or encouragement are greatly appreciated.
