Just a quick note to say that Sept started out with a bang for us here in Houston. I got a call from Sara (weekend nurse filling for Liz who was sick) yesterday at noon thirty. Sara was crying and telling me that Mom had another seizure while taking a shower (in the shower chair) with the "shower lady." Mom had her pupils diliated and she was unresponsive.
I left work and headed home. I called the house and the EMT's were there and they said that Mom was ok and responding appropriately. They wanted to know if we wanted them to take her to the ER. I said yes, we need to rule out another stroke. Anna beat me to ER and we had Mom tested (CatScan) and there wasn't another stroke. The neurologist decided that her anti-seizure medication needed to be increased.
So, Anna and I spent about 5 hours in the ER with Mom and then they discharged her with new orders for additional medication.
She was doing fine after the seizure.
Dad is also doing well. Sara took him to the hand Dr. yesterday while we were in the ER and he has been released from her. His finger has healed pretty well.
Gosh, all you Fl folk tighten down the hatches for Frances. I can't believe you are getting hit again. Maybe it is because M&D have left the area. Maybe they were your protectors. Just Kidding. Y'all take care and be safe. We have heard from Dotty and Frank and they are getting the heck out of Deland. They are heading north in their son's RV. They said they are just leaving the house as is, they couldn't even get any plywood to board up the windows, there wasn't any to be found.
We are praying for all of you and we are also praying for Mom's good friend Rose, who is in the hospital there in Deltona. Everyone, say an extra prayer for her, she may have cancer.
Love to all,
