Saturday the 11th 

The Saturday Update: 

Well, I have very bad news.  Mom had a stroke today.  She was stitting up in the chair having breakfast when it happened.It was about 9:30am (fl time).  She had food in her mouth, but she didn't choke on the food.  So far she cannot use her righthand and her left side of the face is droopy.  She also can't talk.  She is moving both of her legs some, but they didn't have her out of bed today.  As we were leaving this afternoon, when she saw dad, she said Hey, but very low.  I am glad Anna is here cuz I thought I imagined it. 

They did a catscan and found out that the stroke was caused by a blood clot.  Which is better news that free bleeding in her brain.  The doctors think that she has developed an anitbody to the heparin, but they have to send out the test to confirm that.  So they started giving her a blood thinner that will destroy the clot (we hope).  The nurse said they weregoing to insert a small tube in her nose to feed her. 

We won't really know for a few days the extent of the damage caused by the stroke.  Unfortunately, the stroke is affecting her right arm, which is her dominate arm.  I am a little confused, because it is affecting her left face, but right arm. They are keeping her in the ICU unit, which is good I guess, they can take better care of her there, because she is more heavily monitored. I have changed by plane reservation and will leave on wed. 

Dad is not doing to well with the new and seeing her.  Sorry to say, she doesn't really look good at this point.  So I think it is better that the two of us are here for dad.  Anna came in today at 11am.  It sure is good to have her here. 

Well,  I will keep everyone informmed. Oh, and Garlen,  I won't be in till thursday.  I hope that is ok.  If not it will be a far commute.   Gotta go and get dad some dinner. Love,  Mary, Anna & Ed
