Ok. Talked to my sister yesterday and today. Apparently my mom had another seizure on Saturday night. So they were keeping her sedated and seizure free with the breathing tube in while they ran more tests. A chest x-ray showed that she had some pneumonia in one of her lungs. So they ran a spinal tap. You medical folks probably see where this is going. Turns out she has bacterial meningitis. The pneumonia in her lungs spread to the lining of her brain which causes all the symptoms that she had. They are now setting her up on damn near lethal amounts of antibiotics, which she will have to take intraveinously for the next 28 days. They think she will be good enough to take out the breathing tube this afternoon. She has been semi-coherent over the last 24 hours or so. She is still in the ICU, so not totally out of the woods, but the doctors are very optimistic that she will make a full recovery.

So that’s a relief.

Don’t have tons of time so I will relate only one other little observation unrelated to my mother. I have learned the hard way that you should never, ever say nice things about your kids. Case in point: Things sleeping-wise have been wonderful, both kids in the same room (though Emma goes to sleep in our bed and gets transferred later because Sara won’t ever be able to go to sleep with the excitement of Emma laying almost withing arms reach) and sleeping until 7 or so. UNTIL…I say how nice they have been sleeping lately. I said this Thursday. Since then, not one night of good sleep. Either they are both up in the middle of the night, or Sara one day was up at ten after six. Or last night Sara was up and then Emma was up, both at around 4am and then Sara was all excited and laughing at Emma so I got the sofa and Emma shared our bed with my wife so Sara would shut up and go to sleep. This kind of thing happens every time you say something nice. “Gosh, they haven’t had a cold forever!” BLAM, both will get the flu. “Wow, they are playing together so nicely, they never fight!” BLAM a day of complete chaos where they are after each others throats. It never fails. So, compliment them when they do good things, but for god sakes don’t ever talk to anyone about how great your kids are.

More to come…

  4. Prescripoin Drugs cost those without Insurance plans in the USA a fortune! Some states like Illinois, & Wisconson are making it legal for their residents to be able to get Prescription Drugs from Canada, at greatly reduced prices from pharmacies like pharmacies online. Ofcourse the USA FDA is opposed to this, saying that the Drugs may not be up to the high FDA quality standards.Health Canada oversees the safety of drugs, and is roughly the equivalent of the FDA. People visit Canada and buy over the counter medications every day. Prescription drugs are no different. Meaning, they’re perfectly safe from everything I can find on the subject (as well as my sister’s family, who lives in Toronto). If you want to order from Canada, then it’s a buyer beware market. There are internet sites that will happily rip you off. So, please use a registered pharmacy for your medications like for example pharmacies online.
