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

Recommended Posts

I don't even know what to say, Rachel. This is infuriating. Definitely keep us posted on what's going on. I hope she gets some solid answers soon, I feel so sad for her. She must be so scared, I am so sorry sad.gif

Hey Rach, I'm just catching up on what's happened since the first night and I am fuming with anger. I just cannot believe how inadequate the service you have received has been. Its just ridiculous.

 

I seriously would just find the closest neurologist office and be there first thing when they open Monday morning.

 

I'm praying she has a speedy recovery and that she finds peace.

She saw a neurologist last Thursday. She was suppose to have an EEG done BEFORE seeing him, and he said the hospital should have either done it or immediately referred her to another place that could. Anyways-the appointment was kinda pointless without the test readings. He did say he's not convinced it's psuedoseizures. He said next time to skip Salem and go to Portland because they have better technology and would know how to handle it better. He seemed a little shocked she was released THREE times.

 

As for how she is now- highly medicated and a little weird. Her medication has completely altered her personality so it's a little much to deal with.

 

For example- she is NOT a person that up keeps her yard. I mean- at all. The grass is cut but they live out in the middle of nowhere with a ton of horses so they don't really weed or anything. She has been FREAKING out about the yard. So my whole family went over one weekend and basically gave her yard a makeover to help calm her down. She was out at 7AM weeding- it's a little fanatic.

oh wow Rachel that is so weird how much the meds are affecting her and too bad the Dr couldn't do much, but I am glad he is suspect to the problem and wants to help.

Thanks for the update, I was curious how she was doing as well.

 

Weird, I thought the meds were supposed to relax her because she was stressing?

They are Mel. It's really weird. She is normally such a chill person- completely easy going. She is majorly suffering from some anxiety issues but maybe it's not the meds. Maybe the meds aren't blocking it all. I dunno- we just thought it was maybe a side affect or something. Plus she won't listen to anybody so that's just super frustrating. She has an appointment with the neurologist again this Thurs so hopefully we will know more now that she has had her testing.

What a scary situation t be in, I'm so sorry Rachel I imagine it's tough seeing someone you care about so much in a different state. hug2.gif

 

That whole keeping up with the yard sounds kind of OCD and that's totally stressful. I have OCD tendencies and I stress BIG TIME about them - that's why i mentioned it. I'll keep your aunt in my thoughts. I hope the Dr/neurologist has some reasoning behind this side affect.

I hope that the neurologist will be able to give your aunt some answers finally.

With the meds, depending on what they are, they could be calming her yet giving her side effects that are throwing her off. Sometimes meds have to be alered a few times before finding the right ones and the right doses for each person. Considering they haven't figured out what is actually going on yet, it will be difficult to sor the meds out appropriately.

    • 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.
