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.

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
