when it rains it pours at my house
« on: December 28, 2012, 11:29:49 PM »
could use some good thoughts coming my mom's way.

my nephew arrived home this afternoon to find my mom sitting oddly at the kitchen table.  She had all the signs of stroke---inability to talk, drooping face and side.  My nephew called 911.  EMTs immediately suspected stroke.  It was confirmed at the ER.  I live in NY.  She lives in TX with my sister. My mom is 76 and she has had numerous health issues over the last few years including lung cancer and lymph node that was cancerous not to mention advanced RA. 

We are still waiting to hear results of CTscans and other dx testing.  I did speak to my sister about three hrs ago now.  My mom is coming out of it a bit.  My sister can understand her speech a bit more.  My mom doesn't remember anything that happened.  Hopefully we'll know more definitive information by morning.  Then we'll make decision about going to see her.

MOST anxiety occurs on a subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state

thanks

I mean my hubs has his health issue.  My youngest needs to see a rheumy.  then my bro in law calls this afternoon tell me this.   THEN,  THEN I check my daughter's hair ( we--well several of us in the clan had lice two weeks ago) for lice.  and damn it if I didn't find some more.  So I had to check other kids and my own.  Luckily it was just the one this time.   Sent hubs out for more lice shampoo and I treated three of my kids again. .  I'm still up at this hour getting some of the bedding washed.  I know it is common to have this happen again.  but damn.

Good thoughts your way sixpack.  My mother has had mini strokes on and off over the last few years and they can be scary.  As for the lice, oh my daughter has had her fair share.  Best of luck and keep us posted.

I am sorry to hear about your mother. I know what you mean when you say when it rains, it pours.
In 2012 this has happened to me:

I go to the ER with an equilibrium issue.
My daughter is rushed to the ER with a kidney stone.
One of our pets die.
My mother dies.
My father goes into a nursing home.
