DH's mother is in the hospital, she had a stroke that started on MONDAY and didn't tell anyone about the beginnings of her symptoms until she got so aphasic she could barely speak.
We didn't find out about this until last night, when she actually went to the ER/hospital, etc. DH is very frustrated with her.. since he's a paramedic and *SHE'S* the one who trained him to be an EMT way back when he first started. They were both volunteer rescue squad until DH went to school to get his paramedic and his mom retired.
She *knows* the symptoms of a stroke. She also knows there's a three hour window to get the treatment to reverse/hold off the biggest part of the damage.. and yet.. she didn't go to get checked out.
ok done with the rant.. DH is worried and frustrated. and that's making me worry and be frustrated on his behalf, I think.
so we were out until the middle of the night, I've had Braxton Hicks all night, some of which waking me up.
Brianna has had to be dragged out of bed at 7-7:30 all weekend.. This morning? 5:45.
Oh boo! I swear, people who know about the medical profession and advice are the WORST at following it!! I hope your MIL is ok!!
5:45 huh? That sucks - it's always those mornings you need a little extra sleep. Lately I've been telling myself...in a few days/weeks this won't even QUALIFY as tired! LOL! I hope you can take a nap today!!
