My weekend did not quite go the way it was supposed to, however despite the current issues, we managed to get some stuff done.
Current issue being my Mom is in the hospital. She's been having problems with her eye sine the beginning of June, well it has all went downhill from there. Thursday she started feeling sick, thought it was the flu. Friday she was still sick and I mean really sick so my sister took her to Emerg where they found she had an eye pressure of 49 (should be below 20). They transferred her a different hospital that had eye specialists. I went up first thing Saturday morning, they did a procedure to help with the diagnosis: restricted blood flow to the eye which then caused new blood vessels to form behind her eye to compensate creating the pressure. After the procedure, she started to feel relief.
Yesterday we find out she has left sided weakness, so they did a head CT which showed lesions - yup more than 1 on the right side of the brain but they don't know how old they are. They moved her to a better hospital to care for these strokes and find out what's causing them. Her blood pressure plummets when she sits or stands as well. So we are waiting for a CAT scan with dye to see where the clots are, but they suspect her neck, and will not touch it to ensure no blood clots pass. I'm hoping they find it fast and do surgery to fix it right away. Luckily she has not had a full blown stroke but we are on borrowed time. Her effects from the strokes at this point are minimal.
I will try to update as I can. Please keep my Mom in your prayers.
