Now it is my turn, my pleasure and my commitment to be there for her and with her, whatever it takes.

Tuesday 30th of Aug

Dr ViJay ordered a blood transfusion because Hemoglobin was 8.4
Tim was with mom and she was getting her blood transfusion.
Mom had to go to the bathroom, so Tim decided to leave.
She had started to shake then. UNCONTROLLABLE
1 hour into the blood transfusion at a rate of 100 - she had a reaction to the blood transfusion.
ALL the nurses came in and got the blood stopped. She was still shaking. 99.8 temperature.
Couldn't get an oxygen read on her she was shaking so bad.
Started giving her oxygen, Dr. Short said to give her Tylenol by mouth and Benedryl interveniously
They left and mom started throwing up.
the Benedryl kicked in and she went to sleep.
They come to move her down to Skilled nursing. They started to help her up and she says "I'm peeeeing" The sit her down, try again same thing.
They went to get a diaper. Changed her gown.
The lab come in to take blood to see why she had a reaction to the transfusion. So they put her back in bed.
They finished, girls came back got her in her diaper and we are now in a MUCH smaller room.
She is again sleeping.
Mom had to go to bathroom and nurses aide Carol came in and didn't give mom the walker to hang on to and just pulled her up and expected her to walk
She then put her back on the bed and was putting on her diaper and rolling her around and hurting her. Mom was crying out
all of the nurses on 3 put the diaper on while standing up from the commode
Nurses aide Carol was making mom move to fast for her little shaky legs,and didn't offer the walker for support - remember she just had a reaction to the blood transfusion.
Again she had to go and Carol and Samantha came in. Carol was again very hasty and took mom's diaper off before she got up and mom urinated on the bed.
Then Carol was upset that she had to remake the bed. Which was her fault for taking off the diaper too soon.
Then she wasn't quite to the portable commode and she pushed her over and down to sit down.
Carol was very rough in wiping Mom
Then there was putting on the diaper
Carol was going to put her back on the bed and I said put the back of the diaper on before you sit her down.
So I went out and told the nurse that the nurses aide Carol was not to come back in my mom's room.
Nurse said that she was new and they were just getting used to her or something on that line
I said "That has nothing to do with me or mom, and my mom was not going to be treated that way"
