hey are still doing tests. Could have been a seizure or mini stroke.
I'm so sorry to hear that Mark. I hope she will make a full recovery from it.

Thanks Karen. She's had issues for years and appears to be on the long road to dementia, like her mother before her ... It's exasperating!

That is so sad Mark. I feel for you. All you can do is try to support her the best you can. It's very difficult for the supporter though so be sure to try to take care of yourself too as much as possible.

I have to, Cookie. I've also got to deal with my daughter and her 4 kids that live with us. It's always something ...

Just got home from the hospital. All the tests seem to be coming back negative.There's some shrinkage/restriction in some of the blood vessels leading to the brain, but they can't find much of anything else. The heart doc wants to sends her home wearing a heart monitor to see if something shows up after her discharge.

She's got a shunt in her head to drain fluid from the brain. She had hydrocephalus several years ago. We will need to see a neurosurgeon to have them check it out, see if the flow is still what it should be, etc.

At least the negative part sounds promising. I hope you will get the answers you need quickly. :)

Me, too. Thanks.

I think I'd rather hear that they found something, instead of nothing! Something may be cured or at least dealt with. Nothing is harder to fix! If that makes any sense ...

Well, she's come home. They've altered the medication she's to take. Hopefully that will help ...
