Nan Update!

Today has been a long day, My nan had to be in hospital for 10:00am which meant that she needed to leave the house by 9:15am to make sure that she was there on time as this hospital as in the middle of Derby. My mum and I then went and did some banking jobs, and went to get her car washed, after this we had to take her Car to our local tyre repair place as for a while the tyre had got a slow puncture. We found out that it was a  nail that was in the tyre and it turns out that the garage that we had bought it from new it was there and had even marked that it was there. Now surely you would replace the tyre (not sure how you spell that!) or repair it or whatever needed doing, not sell it and not mention it when you know that it was there. We then went straight through to our supermarket to do the weekly shop and make sure that we had got some different foods that my nan might want to eat. As we were driving back my Uncle Rang and said they were transferring her to Derby's other hospital, the main hospital. She was to be put straight on a drip as they were worried about her low blood pressure and the fact that she was really dehydrated. My uncle drove her over as they said it would be faster and she got told she would be there for the majority of the weekend. She's had a brain scan it's come back clear, blood tests they've come back clear, memory test she answered most of the questions right (but she can't remember the day and is getting all the events muddled). She then had a chest x-ray and is having hourly observations all night. Nothing is telling them why her blood pressure is dropping, and the doctor just kept contradicting himself. He told her not to eat a lot, she doesn't, not to get too hot she doesn't, not to stand up to quick, she doesn't. He then said that he knew what was wrong but didn't tell her what was wrong and that his job was to get her more mobile and get her more confident. We left at six and then had to have an argument in the car park because a car had broken down in the exit and the car park attendant was still letting people in, instead of shutting the car park, he eventually did this but then getting out was a nightmare. While my mum ran in to McDonald's to get me some tea my Nan's doctor rang and said the key thing that we were all thinking how is getting her more confident going to change the fact that there is such a big drop in her blood pressure. Eight hours later she has got NO canular in! NO drip in which it had been stressed how much she NEEDED to be on a drip, and when my mum said this she got told 'well it has been written up for her to go onto a drip', well then WHY isn't she on a drip? This is what really annoys me with hospitals it is always later will do, something else comes up that puts another patients care at the bottom of the list! Mum left my nan at 9:35pm and nothing that should have been done had been done and she hadn't had any of the tablets that she needs to do. 

Not sure how tomorrow is going to work out but I will be riding Gatsby, so will have a horse post and another update for everyone! Thank you everybody for your kind wishes to!

Until Next Time
