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.

Rachel, I'm thinking of you and your family. I hope everything gets straightened out soon.

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.

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
