Update on my Mom

So here's what we have right now:

It does appear to have been a (very minor, localized) stroke. At this point, hearing in her right ear seems to be returning, though the right-side facial slackness remains. There's supposed to a sort of "team meeting" with my parents and the doctor(s) in a while, so there may be more details to come, but it looks like the crisis-y part of this is over.

Also, yay for modern medicine! And thanks again to everyone who offered advice, information, and/or prayers and vibes.


  1. Glad to hear she's doing a bit better. Your family will be in my thoughts.


  2. Thanks. She's on her way home now, so we're definitely past the crisis point. Apparently the diagnosis isn't quite as clear as I was told - that's more a best guess than a definite conclusion - but at least they're sure that nothing is else is about to blow up on us.

    Ye gods, I am tired.

  3. I will send you my bill.

    Glad to hear things are coming into focus. Not knowing is difficult.


  4. What a way to start 2012! I'm glad she's doing better and hope she remains so.

  5. Sorry to hear about your mom. The only advice that I have to offer is that if you google health issues, they almost always end up being some sort of horrible life-threatening disease.

  6. Glad to hear things are getting figured out and she's able to go home where she can hopefully rest more comfortably.

    I've been thinking about you guys.
