Long Day at The Hospital

I am finally home from the hospital!

The actual procedure went fine; they were not able to see the brain tumor so she is scheduled to have an MRI next Monday which will tell us more about that as well as her bulging disks in her back; she will very likely need back surgery also.

The aneurysm is tinier than her last one; they caught it early which is awesome. He said she will need surgery for that one as well, however since it's small it's not a dire emergency, he said 3-4 weeks maybe; if not longer.

I ended up staying at the hospital all day, which was not my plan...my goal was to be there for the verdict of the procedure and then go back to work. However shortly after she got back she starting having some bad reactions, such as major headaches, nausea, and shortness of breath (this was due to her not "wanting" to breath b/c her head hurt so bad)...the nurses said she would be perfectly fine, it was just a reaction which happens to some patients, however I did not want to leave her--so I was there all day.

We will know more next week sometime....we'll know for sure if she will have back surgery and when and when she will have the aneurysm surgery as well as how the brain tumor looks.

Thank you ALL for your prayers, calls, texts and emails...it means alot to me. I am SO tired and emotionally drained from being at the hospital all day (not to mention my lack of sleep the past couple weeks) I feel as though I could do what bears do and just hibernate for a couple months :) .....ahhh that would be so nice!!

Thanks again, you all are MORE than AMAZING!!!!!!! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I can see in reading yours that you are having some battles right now. I just wanted to let you know that I am praying for you and your journey. I have several friends who have struggled with infertility and then both of them conceived. Of course, it is not in our hands, but I am hopeful for both of you to get the bundle of joy that you dream of!!!

Hey, I don't know how I missed this! My blog didn't show me that you had posted! I'M VERY SORRY! I'm glad the anuarism (sp) is smaller than last time and I am really praying your mom will recover just fine! Tiff, sometimes it SUCKS getting older and dealing with "life." You deserve a break VERY soon.
Love,
Melody
