Verdun - it's amazing how much trouble a bladder infection can cause - Ma gets very confused and anxious (and sometimes angry) when she has one. The care staff now recognise the signs and make sure she takes enough liquid on board and gets her pee tested asap - a few days of antibiotics and she's as right as rain again (or as right as she'll ever be).
Your mum has been in hospital and that's not always the best place for the elderly - the staff don't have the time to make sure that the elderly confused are drinking enough liquid, and also don't know the patients well enough to recognise the changes in mood that might indicate a UTI.
Fingers crossed that things settle down soon ((hugs)).
Hope Mrs Fishy is ok now, and that Lyn's mum's prognosis is good and that her dad continues to cope so well.
