So after keeping her safe all this time, this happens in hospital. We found this out today. Doctors tells us that she is currently asymptomatic, but we are really worried. Has anybody else experienced this? She is 82 and has Leukemia (in remission) and dementia. We just don’t know what to expect.
So she now has carers going in three time a day until she has finished isolating.
In a way this is a positive thing as it gives us an opportunity to see how she will cope in these conditions, while we are forced to stay away for a few days. If it works it may be the way forward for now.
Her dementia is moderate until the dreaded UTI returns. We work full time, but we are on call 24/7 and visit daily. This might be the respite we need.
My mom's AL/MC has recently had some staff test (+), and they've been fine after the 5 day quarantine, no residents have picked it up, or perhaps they have but aren't symptomatic. I
She gets confused so can't always manage her iPhone. However the staff have promised to help her Facetime this afternoon.
Have faith she'll sail through, too. If she's vaccinated, that'll be a huge help, too.
I know Omicron is running rampant and likely we all will get it. I just heard that 3 friends who have been careful contracted it earlier this month. All women in their mid 50’s who are fully vaxxed.
I hope your mother continues to have a mild case.
She's in a hospital, which is the most equipped to handle any event that gets worse. If, especially, she is vaccinated and boostered, I'd worry very little about this.
Dratted virus is just everywhere where I am. Even the most careful people are getting it.
Can Mom use the phone or video call so you can stay connected? Keep her spirits up?
