    The ambulance we called got lost twice and took an hour and a hlaf to arrive, and then needed to take longer because they couldn't move her to the ambulance withoout a wheelchair... By the time she got going it was past midnight.

    Now my dad's with her in the hospital and I have no idea what's happening and I'm so scared...
    That sounds terrifying! And really upsetting, not having emergency services arrive promptly.
    Do you have a lot you need to do while you wait for answers- like, can you take time off to be with family and feel supported and talk to them, or be with your dad at the hospital? It's horrible to be in suspense and powerless and then have to go to work or be away from support!

    If you wanna talk about it here- does she have any serious pre-existing medical stuff going on?

    I hope it turns out the best it possibly can, and things get identified and sorted out quickly!

    ((For me, yesterday was a terrible day because it started with standing in the rain cleaning a pool for two hours, I backed the work truck into a tree, yelled at customers, and had to work for 14 hours straight))

    Meh, that's horrible, but try to spend as much time with her as you can. I can't believe it took that long for an ambulance to arrive, though. Don't most people have access to a GPS now? I would like to think ambulances do.

    I hope they quickly figure out what went wrong and they have something to address it.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS PXR!

    So, as of today my mother's being moved out of the intensive care. Yesterday she was fully awake again, but can't anything from that night until now, and has no recollection of being taken to the hospital. Otherwise she's almost back to normal.

    The doctors say she had undiagnosed diabetes that caused ketoacidosis. Apparently her blood was more acid than blood when she was brought in, but they managed to bring it back down to normal thankfully.




    On the other hand, I had to spend most of yesterday routing through all my logins changing and that used my @tiscali email to a different one, as they are shutting it down today. So that was fun. >_<

    I'm really glad it wasn't a stroke or a brain aneurysm. For a minute it sounded something like that.

    I'm hoping she can make a full recovery before the holidays.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS PXR!
