John and Me

It's all down hill from there...

Tuesday my Mom was complaining of a headache. She kept my Dad awake all night on Monday asking him for Cigarettes. He thought it was just nerves because of his surgery. The home health nurse saw her on Tuesday and said she was probably over medicated. She progressively got worse and better. She lost all since of time, not knowing who was alive and who was dead. Thursday I took her to emergency. She has had a stroke. A vessell in hear brain is bleading. She was in ICU Thursday and yesterday they moved her to a room. They cannot do an MRI on her because she has not had the Stint (SP) in her heart long enough. They did an Angiogram and found no anuresm and think the bleeding has stop.

Last night she seemed to take a turn for the worst.

I've been a crying binge. I have cried my eyes out the last 2 days. Cried myself to sleep last night.

It is so bizarre to have both your parents in the hospital. When she was in ICU they were literally 100 feet apart. I have spent over 72 hours at the hospital this week already.

Well John is out of the shower so I'm heading off to hospital.

Thanks to all of you for your kind words.

Happy Birthday to anyone I've missed. Thinking of you all, just don't have time to read or post.
