Hmmmmm just had a call from dm she asked me if I called her an hour ago and I said no why? She then said it was a missed call from the hospital and wanted to know if we were all alright? I was like what are you going on about? She said it must be the hospital as she's got an eye appointment on weds. She then went onto say how much she loves her grandchildren and enjoyed Xmas with them. I was like hmm confused. I said bye and called her back an hour later she said she called the hospital back and the operator said if anyone at the hospital calls a patient it's a witheld number so wouldn't come up on her phone and that the department she's going to isn't even open today. She then said she looked back at her phone list and there was no call recorded or listed. Wtf is she up to? I've got that odd feeling now like somethings wrong

How old is she?
Could she have a water infection? Can make the elderly v confused?

Some hospitals send appointment confirmation requests to phones. Likely to be an automated message. Hope she's ok, maybe she's being odd because she's worried about her appointment?

She's 64. She's actually had a urinary tract infection for 4 weeks now that anti biotics arnt working. I guess it's that then. She was just soo odd on the phone hmm

Can you get her to a GP/walk in place?
A uti can develop into sepsis, she needs to be reassessed if her symptoms have changed.

A water infection can cause delirium. Have an elderly loved one with this just now. It should be temporary if it is this.

I had this with my mum, but she was convinced the police were calling her. She went to hand herself in at the local police station. sad
This went on for some while, the officer I went to speak to said that there were several elderly people who came in the "confess"

sounds like uti but maybe she did get a call and jumped to conclusions?
