I hope they tested her urine and did not just say UTI because it's cloudy!
Wishing her a speedy recovery.

They did test her urine Saturday night. They also sent it for culture and should have those results soon.

Thanks again for the thoughts and prayers. My mom finally got home yesterday. She had different doctor's in the hospital and everyone had a different opinion regarding the UTI. She did have low sodium and it's finally coming back up. The first doctor said her urine culture came back as mixed bacteria which almost always means the sample was contaminated, but he said since her urine was cloudy he felt confident it was a UTI, so he was treating her with oral antibiotics, then wanted to switch to oral Levoquin for two weeks. Yesterday she had a different doc and he said her new urine culture was negative, so he told her he wasn't comfortable giving her Levoquin because typically a UTI is only treated for three days anyway. He said he doesn't like overdoing antibiotics. I hate when everyone has a different opinion because you don't know who to believe sometimes! Main thing is she is improving! So anyway, she is home and is resuming home health care.
