Mum's in hospital

Just to let my friends and family know that Mum is in hospital. The GP wanted her to go in yesterday as Mum's oxygen levels weren't right and the last couple of weeks Mum's had antibiotics for an infection of some sort which hasn't cleared. Anyway it looks like Mum has fluid on one of her lungs, a probable infection of her chest (which should show up better after the fluid is taken off her lung) and a flair up of her COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). COPD is said to be a "smoker's disease" but Mum has never smoked in her life! Mum's a bit muddled and pretty confused so hoping a few days in hospital will see her better.

Sorry your Mum is not so well. When Paul's Grandad got took into hospital he was very confused too but we were told that this is what happens when older people get a bad infection. A few days with antibiotics and a bit of rest should do her the world of good and see it off.

Sending you all my love and some massive (((( Big Hugs ))))
