I got back to the hospital around 8:30 so I got to sit with my sister and brother-in-law before her procedure was done. Dr. Howerter came out afterward and said her bladder was quite inflamed and she was not emptying her bladder each time she went to the bathroom. He found no obstruction of any kind. That was good! he is going to prescribe two meds to clear up the inflammation and help her to empty her bladder.
They are putting her in skilled nursing this afternoon.
He also suggested that the "sundowners" problem that occurs in the late afternoon might be alleviated by taking familiar photos in for her to look at. It might improve her mood in the evening.
I stayed with them briefly after she came out of recovery. Then I came on home and ate breakfast and walked Slinky. He was so happy not to miss his walk.
