My mother Bev had a brain aneurysm on Friday, August4th 2017. She was air lifted to Sanford Medical Center in Fargo, ND and has since than been through quite the trials. When she arrived, they had to place what they call a "coil" in her brain to stop it from bleeding. The aneurysm did end up hemorrhaging which caused the blood in her brain. Since than, it's been quite the roller-coaster for her and for us as a family. She ended having seizure's several times which in turn ended up with her having to go back in for emergency procedures. In these procedures, they ended up going back up into her brain and injecting a medication through the vessels to stop the spasms that were occurring. If these procedures were not done, she was at very high risk for having multiple serious issues mostly including a stroke. As of now, she is completely sedated and resting. There is a tube placed down her throat and a ventilator breathing for her. They did this for her own good, so she would rest. In this case, as a family, patience is definitely needed. Mom is hanging in there as best as possible. She is STRONG. Right now, the doctor's are telling us to take it hour by hour... Things can change quickly, as we found out. Thank you everyone for all the love, support and prayers. We are so lucky to have such caring family and friends. Please continue to pray for mom as she continues to go through this trial in her life.
I will try to keep this updated as much as possible. Love, Dana
