December 2011 Moms

T&Ps Please - Update

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.

  • How is your mum feeling today? Did she show some improvement? Did they find out more details about what caused this? Hugs to you, this is a scary time for you, I'm sure.

  • She's doing better each day.  I spent the day at the hospital again. They did end up confirming that she had a stroke. although they don't know what caused it. The damage was to the language center of the brain. So she's still having trouble with getting out the words for certain things. But the speech therapist is hopeful that she'll be able to re-learn some of the things. And they have to work on her swallowing as well. She only can have liquids. That being said they are discharging her tomorrow with scripts for OT, PT & speech therapy. And she has to go back in 2 weeks for a follow up MRI just to be safe. It has certainly been scary. I hope that we are on the uphill swing now and she doesn't have any setbacks. Thanks again for all the thoughts & prayers!
