Mother hospitalized in critical care

Postby J3kidford » Thu Mar 25, 2010 12:27 am

My mom fell yesterday and hit her head. She suffered a large bleed into her brain that was not detected until today and had to have emergency surgery this afternoon. The surgery went well, but we won't know the outcome for several more days. Please keep her in your prayers.

And a big thank you to Speedy1 for her help with my daughter and her support, and to chiki143 for her updates on my mother's condition (she was her nurse in recovery) and support. You both don't know how much that has meant to me!

Thank you all. It's really too soon to tell, but this morning she was doing really well, was taken off sedation and off the ventilator, but then tonight she spiked a fever and doesn't know any of us, where she is, etc. I know there will be ups and downs for several days and I greatly appreciate all your support. It really means a lot.

Much better day today. She recognized all of us all day. Fever seems under control. I'm spending the night in the hospital with her tonight (notice I didn't say 'sleep') so my dad could go home and get some rest.

Thanks guys. She's now in a rehab hospital and although she's still got a long way to go she does seem to be improving a little each day. It's been a heck of a rollercoaster ride, let me tell you. Still not sure if I'll be able to go to the Dragon, but I'm hoping. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
