More bad news

My mother in law is back in the hospital. We went to Michigan Saturday morning and Saturday evening we got the call from the doctor that he was admitting her again. Because it was late my husband wanted to wait until Sunday morning to drive back so we were very lucky that his aunt could be with her at the hospital when she was admitted. We don't really know what is going on. The stroke in December affected her right side and now she is having left sided problems and some type of spasms in her left arm and hand that are causing her a lot of pain. They have her on lots of pain killers and muscle relaxers. This has seemed to ease the pain some. She is not speaking and really not eating or drinking hardly anything so we don't know if she has had another stroke or not. They are supposed to do an MRI tonight. They attempted an MRI last night but when they layed her flat she had difficulty breathing and had to stop. They were going to be giving her breathing treatments today so we hope she is able to get through the MRI tonight. I have been sick and home from work the last 2 days so I haven't gone up to the hospital the last 2 days. That is the last thing she needs is to get more sick on top of it. It is not looking good right now. My poor husband is just beside himself. He doesn't want to see his mother like this. She is only 68yrs old and is suffering so much. I just pray that God watches over her and my husband. I will blog when I can but things are a bit difficult right now.

Linda I am so sorry to hear about your MIL. 68 seems so young by today's standards, so I know your husband is having a hard time. I hope she has a quick recovery and they can find the problem. I hope you feel better too!
