Prayers Please!!

It's been kind of a crazy scary day beginning super early this morning.
My dad called at 6 this morning to let me know he had rushed my mom (who I refer to as "Juju") to the ER because she was dizzy, disoriented, and couldn't walk or stand well.

She was then transported by ambulance to an area hospital where I hurried to meet up with them as she was being admitted. I stayed at the hospital to help her while they ran tests. The main hope we had was to rule out the scary possibility that she might have suffered an acute stroke in her 50's.



Thankfully, after a really long day of sitting on ultra firm hospital chairs (now that's dedication), they have finally ruled out a stroke and have diagnosed/begun treating mastoiditis and severe vertigo. She has begun a treatment plan and depending on how fast the infection and inflammation in her neck/skull/ear are controlled, she will move on to possibly outpatient rehab if needed.

We're taking good care of her until she is released from the hospital (fingers crossed for late tomorrow), but continued prayers for recovery would be appreciated! Until then, I have my office set-up in her hospital room and have enjoyed the not-so-subtle volume of her medicine-induced snoring.

She may kill me when she reads that last part. :)

Also, my little brother is having a pretty intense back surgery and will be hospitalized in the neuro unit tomorrow (great timing, huh?), so I will be taking him to surgery tomorrow morning. Please say a special prayer for him!

Once he's released, I will be setting up my own version of an ICU unit to care for both of them at home. I think I missed my life's calling... I should've been a nurse - haha!

Bottom line...
God is so good.
Thanks for the love and prayers!

  6. I went through something similar to this last year and the year before. Last year my mother was rushed by my brother to the hospital and then she was ambulanced to another hospital because they had a better cardiac care center. My mother had two aortic aneurysms last year with in six months of each other. just prior to my mother's first one my father had a stroke.
    The comfort of others prayers are the best medicine in the world. I am sure that your mother greatly appreciates her family being there with her. There is nothing like family when you are ill and need to be there for the person also it is best to have someone other than the patient to be a patient advocate.
    All the best for a wonderful and postively good outcome.
