My mother has cellulitis on her leg, it flared up after she was bit by her cat. The day after i noticed it wasn't looking good she dropped her oxygen tank on the other foot. (not the cellulitis foot) It bruised really bad to point it was looking black. I took her to the doctor and they put her on penicillin and hydrocodone.
?A few days after she started taking her medicine i noticed she is falling asleep all the time, while watching tv, while using the bathroom, in the middle of conversations. It is not anything close to normal. She also is talking about things that make no sense. For example she will tell me that she moved things around in her room, talk to the cat when the cat is not even in the room with her. She has told me that I'm 34 when I'm 27. Most of the time its mumbling and i cant hear her. Later on she will be fine and you can have a normal conversation with her. I have asked her what is going on with her how she is feeling when she is talking like this, and she says that she will think she really did move things around. she thinks that her thyroid medication is too low. Her doctor dropped her thyroid meds from 150 MG to 75 MG...I'm not exactly sure why he did this. She also has COPD, Diabetes, Thyroid issues.
If anyone has any clue or thinks they know what could be going on id greatly appreciate the advice. I have talked to her doctor and she said that cellulitis can drain you and take a lot out of you. I totally understand that but when my mom doesn't seem to be on the same planet as me i worry, I'm to the point I'm loosing sleep worrying about her. She is not able to cook, clean, or do anything for herself at this point. She is not the lady i know. I'm just a very concerned daughter, that has a feeling something isn't right!!!!
