Head still spinning

I had a heck of a week. My mother-inlaw got really sick. We had to admit her to the hospital on monday.The hospital released her and told her to make a follow up appiontment to get seen in two days. Well that in itself was hard to do because they didn’t have any appointments till two weeks later. WEll yesterday The cut that she had in her leg got infected and it was pussing she got feverish and was not good at all, On top of that she is Diabetic and suffers from high blood pressure so we were trying to get her seen as soon as possible. We left her in the emergency room while we went to go park the car and I guess in the 10 minutes we were gone she either fainted or started fainting I am not quite sure. Thankfully she was at a hospital and the staff helped her right away but they did suggest to me that I take a look at medical alert bracelets for her that states she has diabetes because I guess from all the pain she was feeling her suger went up and she was going into diabetic shock. They finally took a look at her leg and told us it was infected and that is where all her pain and swelling was coming from and that in turn made her diabetes act up and the reason why it got infected was because since she has diabetes wounds dont heal as quicky they gave her some antibiotic to take and that should help heal her. By the time we got home I was so exhausted that I just hit the bed and didn’t wake up till 9:00am. SHe is feeling a little bit better today but I am still going to keep an eye on her. I had no Idea that diabetes stopped you from healing quickly. So I learned something new.

P.S. Oh I forgot to mention my cellphone got stolen but that is a whole other entry.
