Great Aunt Lil update - anemia @ 04:29 pm

Mood: cynical displeased.
Music: mythbusters

Mom called to say that Aunt Lil was admitted to the hospital.  The care center doc called her G.P. and compared notes.  The blood count that she has is the same as what she had when they released her from the hospital.

I'm not amused that one doc says that she's anemic and her G.P. condiders it her normal state.

Well, what is it?  Is she anemic - which could be causing a few of her other problems?  -or-  Is she alright?

It's time for someone to figure it out! My specialist would say that being diabetic is my normal state, but that doesn't mean it doesn't complicate stuff, as you well know.

Keep asking.

Thanks.

I think that it's time that I started getting into the loop.

I'm just not getting a clear picture of what is really going on with Aunt Lil from Mom, not that she is doing it intentionally, by any means, just that she is 74 herself and maybe not quite up on critical listening.

Mom can recite the facts and figures and who said what and what she was thinking and other related info, in social settings and such many days later, but she fails to ask, what I would consider, key questions of the medical folks.
