Yesterday tests showed that my mother has a systemic infection--a mild case of sepsis. So last night they admitted her to the hospital so they could put her on IV antibiotics. She had already started responding to oral antibiotics, so I think that IV antibiotics will probably make her feel much better pretty quickly.
I am far away again. My nephew (her grandson) will be there today. I know that hospitals are used to admitting people who come in by themselves, but I only wish I had been there to be with her. I hate to think of her going to the hospital alone.
