    You could ask if the weight gain is all water retention. Her inactivity (stuck in bed) might be contributing. You did say she felt better earlier with some physical therapy.

    They're sending her home, oxygen tank and all, because ''there's nothing they can do more in hospital''.

    What's worrying us, apart from needing the oxygen tank, is that she seems to have zero energy. Even though she's eating her meals and taking Ensure she's very weak to the extent of needing help to get in and out of bed.

    It's like she's going away, little by little.
