Thanks Jamamma,and everyone again. I will try to find a patient rep(I am not sure whether they have this rep, only heard there is a department called patients advocacy. But I will try anyway.)
My mother seems to control the infection over the weekend with fever going down a little. The docs said they will draw her blood again to build the culture and see what the situation is.(Is it normal that they draw blood twice every day, cause I am worried about it based on her generally weak condition). Docs also suggested to give her a procedure(PEG? Tube, a tube directly into the stomach to feed her instead of the current one in the nose). Is that safe? I am also worried about her new bedsore, cause the nurse here in the medical floor is not as good as those in the ICU. They don’t turn her from time to time unless I push them to do so.
The most upsetting thing to me is that she was trying to speak to me again yesterday, moving her jaws and mouth very hard, but no sound. She is kind of less willing to communicate with me by moving her feet or squeeze me (very weak move), although I can feel she is very concious.
