mamasbabygirl Posted July 21, 2006 Share Posted July 21, 2006 Jeez, Mom went for her follow-up MRI from the neurosurgeon visit a month ago and the next thing we know she is being transported to UC, which usually means serious business. Her neurosurgeon called to say that there is either an infection in her brain (which he highly doubts bc she has no signs of infection and usually it would have happened much closer to her surgery) or tumors. She is in the NSICU tonight only bc there are no other beds in the regular neurological unit. I know that she is in the best hands, people from all over come to UC, but I just wish we knew something. The Dr. is not coming tonight. Someone from their office called to tell the nurses no food after midnight in case she has surgery tomorrow. We will be there bright and early, waiting....I hate that and I know you all understand that. Mom spirits are great-cracking the nurses up (her usual), although I'm sure she is scared to death-or maybe that's just me. No one could stay with her tonight, but she was eating angel food cake when we left. Her head hurts and she has not had pain meds since 10am this morning... Tomorrow is mom's 52nd birthday, July 21st. We have on order her favorite cake. I hope she can enjoy it, but if not, I guess at least her problem will be treatable. Thanks for listening and being here for me. All my love, Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
