UTI and Kidney function.
My 67 year old Mother has had Multiple Sclerosis for 45 years. On Jan 1 she suffered 3 seizures. In the hospital her blood pressure was 294/137. They ran tests and found she had a severe UTI as well as decreased kidney function( 50%). They gave her antibiotics and she started to do better. But they were given for only 3 days. A few days later she was basically incoherent. So they started giving her antibiotics again and again she started to rebound. Now, 7 weeks out she was basically non responsive and very frail. I went to see her and shes beet red and very hot. I run for the nurse and low and behold, She has a temp of 103 and her urine is very cloudy. Now the doctors have said for weeks that they could no more for her and we need to just keep her comfortable. My question is, has anyone else come across a similar situation? Now her kidneys are at 20%, and I believe she has more than just a bladder infection. But the blood tests say no. She is again on antibiotics, so I hope in a few days to see her improve somewhat. Any ideas out there? I appreciate any ones time to read and respond.
