My Poor Mummy

I’m in Emergency now with my Mum.

Her indwelling catheter is not draining properly.

I’m just glad Mum appears comfortable.

Edited 04/22/2016 to add: It appears as though Mum’s kidneys are not functioning efficiently, and there is a lot of sediment, also due to renal function (or lack thereof). In Mum’s condition and state of end-stage dementia, it is not advisable to look into dialysis. We will have to see how the next few days go, keep her comfortable, increase her pain medication, and accept this may be one of the first stages of her body slowly shutting down.
