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

Recommended Posts

OMG- one of my aunt's just called me bawling. My grandma is in tears and she is a rock. My aunt is currently in the ambulance as we speak on the way to the hospital and her convulsions are much more violent this time. My aunt said she was convulsing so hard she could hear the gurney in the background lurching around.

 

I hate feeling so helpless like this.

So sorry to hear about your Aunt! I hope they figure it out and get her taken care of soon!

 

A similar thing happened to my neighbor the other day. April has had quite a few miscarriages, and she is pregnant now- due around Sept or so- this is the longest she's been pg. Anyway, her husband woke up to her having a seizure Friday morning. He called 911, they went to the hospital, and she was released at noon. Her husband was on the phone making an appt for an EEG, when she had her 2nd seizure (about 1:00- only AN HOUR after they got home!). Another 911 call, and they kept her until the next day. They said she and the baby are fine, but now she's on this medication that's making her seem really out of it. She went to her OB on Tuesday, but I haven't heard what they said (her DH and mine talk more than she and I do). Anyway, her DH is afraid that something will happen when he is at work and they have no family around here. She is supposed to text him every hour, but then she goes to sleep (he works 2nd shift). We have their garage door opener in case of an emergency. IL law says she can't drive for 6 months because of having the seizures. Sorry for the novel~ just sounded similar!

I had withdrawal symptoms like this several years ago after getting off Paxil (horrid drug!). I felt like I was having electric shocks all over my body, and I had waking dreams (really creepy). Martin just got off of a different SSRI (Lexapro) about 2 months ago and is still having what he calls "brain spasms". All these drugs are SCARY! Has your Aunt been on anything like this?

Oh Rachel!!!! I can't believe this is happening - how could they have discharged her while she was still having these symptoms?!?!?! wtf.gif That's making me mad so I can only imagine how you guys are feeling. I'm so sorry. I hope everything is OK and that it is a reaction to a med. Did they tell the hospital doctors that the primary doc thought it might be med related??

Oh no, Rachel, I am so sorry. That is just unbelievable that they sent her home. I work in the neurology dept. at a major hospital and I cannot imagine that ever happening. I would think they could be sued for negligence if (God forbid) anything happened. So weird!

 

Please keep us updated. Your aunt and family and you are all in my thoughts and prayers.

    • 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.
