So yesterday I talked to my mom and she seemed a little confused and was slurring her words. Later that night I spoke with my sister and she asked me about my conversation with my mom. She said that my mom was really confused, arguing with my aunt telling her my birthday is next week when its really in December. She was also calling items by completely wrong names. So my sister took her to the doctor today and they said it was probably dehydration given my mom's history. She has a bunch of medical issues. They gave her blood thinners just in case and then sent her for a brain scan to be sure it wasn't anything more serious. Well I guess the scan showed that she had a small stroke and the sent her to the ER. So now I sit here waiting for news. I don't know much about what they do for strokes but I am trying to stay away from Dr. Google because I am sure it will tell me something scary. Anyway, if you ladies could send some T&Ps my moms way I'd appreciate it.
Update - I want to start by saying thank you for all the T&Ps! I took today off and am spending it up at the hospital. I was here early enough to talk to the doctor. Apparently they are not 100% sure it was a stroke. But the MRI was abnormal. The radiologist needs to review the scan to determine the problem. She is doing better today. Her speech isn't slurred, but some things she still can't remember and she is having trouble finding the words for certain items. She is on a liquid diet because she's having trouble swallowing. Hopefully once they figure out what is going on they can actually start some sort of treatment.
