My Aunt went to the hospital last night.....

Recommended Posts

Last night, my aunt was transported to the hospital because she was seizing. She's not epileptic but she was having violent seizures that caused her to even foam at the mouth. Even after reaching the hospital and recieving some type of shot, she continued to seize roughly every two minutes. They gave her a MRI and didn't find anything. They also did bloodwork and found nothing abnormal so they sent her home after giving her a ton of muscle relaxers and advice to consult a neurologist. She seized several times on the way home.

 

I was on pins and needles the whole night because I knew she was transported to the hospital, but my family is so huge I didn't want to be one more body in the waiting room until we found out the seriousness of it. I'm kind of dismayed how the hospital sent her home after 3 hours and had no idea what to do. They didn't even hold her for observation.

 

I talked to one of my aunts this morning that's watching her and she said that she is still having a convulsions. I don't get it- why would they send her home? Is this normal? I am so worried!

She's in and out of consciousness. She doesn't remember seizing but she can kinda tell when it's coming on. She says things like "here comes another one." She is very drugged up so she isn't really to coherent.

 

She had convulsions and collapsed when they were walking out the hospital doors. They ran and got a doctor and he told them that they still just needed to see a neurologist. That's just crazy to me!

That is insane that they would release her! Obviously something is very, very wrong. When is she able to get into a neurologist? It seems that they should've had one immediately at the hospital. I am so sorry that you are going through this. You will be in my thoughts and prayers today!

Rachel, I'm so sorry you're going through this. My BIL went through this last summer, it was awful! and the same situation happened, the hospital sent him home. Just like your aunt, he didn't remember anything, he didn't even know what day it was or who the president of the United States was. The day after he was acting very weird, my sister took him back to the hospital and checked him in. He was there about 2 weeks and fully recovered. Apparently he was having a reaction to a prescription medicine he was taking and the doctors gave him small dosages of it to stop the seizures. Once that happened he was fine. I hope your aunt recovers soon, it seems very odd she got sent home. Does she have an appt. with the neurologist yet?

That's so scary Rachel! Was she referred to a neurologist? I wished she lived here... she could see my mom's neurologist he was rated on the nation's top doc's. I'll keep her in my thoughts keep us posted as to what happens.

OMG- I can't believe they sent her home in that condition. It would be one thing if she didn't have another one, but this seems crazy to me. This happened to a friend of mine two years ago. Her seizures were caused by stress... or so they said. She had to do a bunch of tests and luckily they didn't find anything and it hasn't happened again. I hope she is ok.

Rachel, that is so scary. I cannot believed they released her form the hospital with no diagnosis and she is still suffering from the original symptoms. Have you called a neurologist? I wish I knew one in the area. I only know them in SF and Dallas. I am keeping yur family in my thoughts.

    • Hey Ladies, I’m planning my wedding for October 2020 and we have narrowed it down to the Now Jade or Royalton Riviera Maya. We are expecting about 50-60 people and want a private reception. We are coming from BC, Canada.  Reading through the forums on here has been super helpful so far!  Something that’s been a bit hard in planning is figuring out all the hidden fees that add up on top of your basic wedding package.  Any tips or advice? Thanks!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
