Well, yesterday we had a huge scare with Mom. I will start off saying she is stable at this moment.
At about 5pm (Fl time), yesterday, Aunt Dolores got a phone call from DM telling her that Mom had a stroke and what hospital did they want her to go to. Aunt D told them the one where they did her surgery and had the first stroke at. What happened at DM was the nursing staff put Mom back in the bed for an afternoon nap and a few minutes later, she had a grand mal seizure which lasted 5 minutes and she was non-responsive, but breathing on her own. The EMT's were called and she was taken to the hospital. She also had two more seizures and bit her tongue on the ride to the hospital. The ER did a cat scan and told us that the entire left side of her brain was "gone" and they had put her on some medication (dilantin) and she was resting comfortably.
The hospital called Aunt D at about midnight (we didn't find this out till the morning) and said they had transferred her back to DM and that she DID NOT have another stroke. The damage they saw on the cat scan was the damage from the one and only stroke she had in October. Whomever talked to Aunt D, said there was a problem with Mom's medication and that is what caused the seizures and that Mom would not likely get the use of her right arm and right leg back, since there was too much brain damage from the stroke. She is currently back at DM and when Dad wakes up they will go and see Mom and find out some additional info. When I get the info, I will let all of you know what is going on.
At this time we are postponing the move to Texas and hopefully, when Mom is stablized, we will move both of them at that time.
Keep the prayers coming don't stop them, we sure do need them now.
Take care everyone,
