I just received the following email from Sophia Mas at Stewart-Marchman, in response to my email to her detailing the current medications mom has been taking:


Got it! – In addition to the Respirdal Mtab 2mg BID and the Aricept 5mg po in the am she is taking;
B Complex
Septra DS for a UTI she had from 12/2 to 12/8
HCTZ for Hypertension

Consulted w/ our ARNP who reviewed the vital signs and added the Lisinopril 10mg q am & the Lopressor 50 mg po bid which will normalize her pulse which has been a bit elevated –
About the vitamins the Physician assistant states that the B complex will do for now –

1 There was absolutely no reason for me to “check out” that website when I visited. I cannot imagine what she thought I would find useful there, and by the time I thought to ask her about it, she had forgotten.
2 This is a good, early example of employees at Stewart-Marchman not knowing what is happening at that facility. By the time she sent this email to me, I had already been calling and attempting to talk to my mom twice each day, every single day, for over a week.
3 Wow. Just … wow.
