As most of you know, my mother in law recently passed away. I don't think it comes in threes anymore. *sigh* A cousin of my mother's passed, my step-mom's aunt passed this week and now my Grandma is in the hospital. Fortunately she is doing well and isn't in any danger. But....I'm sick of hospitals, sick of funerals (aunt's is tomorrow) and I just want to find a nice warm beach somewhere and have Raoul bury me up to my neck after he gives me a world class massage. The weird thing with Grandma though is that we're not sure what's going on. She was working with her physical therapist in home last night and suddenly started talking gibberish and couldn't move. Of course the first thought was a stroke but so far, nothing confirms that. The CT scan came back fine, there are not physical symptoms (weakness, paralysis, etc.) but they did do an MRI today so we'll see what that says. She does however, have expressive aphasia. She understands everything said to her, knows what she wants to say but somwhere between her brain and her mouth it gets either jumbled around or lost. She'll use the wrong word, have problem recalling a word or words or just say gibberish. But....she IS aware she's doing it and will correct or attempt to correct herself. Some things she says comes out just fine and others....not so much. She read aloud however and did perfectly. I kind of wonder if there isn't some sort of medication thing going on as she's on a lot of medications. I don't know that that would be the sole cause of this but I'm sure it didn't help any. Hopefully the MRI will tell us more tomorrow. Ugh. Just needed to vent about all of this though. Thanks for "listening"....I'm off to bed. I'll update when I can.
