My mom's story began on Friday October 14, 2016. She was at my brothers house in Dunnville doing what she often does which is helping out her children. She was complaining about how she didn't really feel well so she thought she would make her and my dad a sandwich and they had lunch. She felt okay after so my dad went outside and my mom continued helping out. A little while later my nephew Cameron was up stairs and heard her teacup fall and thought it was weird that he didn't hear anything after so he went down to check on her and found her on the couch conscious but non responsive. She was then picked up by ambulance and rushed to Hamilton General where she underwent several tests and found some abnormalities in a brain scan but it was decided that they could not determine the cause of the episode. She was then released Saturday morning. Then at around midnight my Dad woke up to her having a seizure and call 911 again. She was taken back to Hamilton General and was admitted. They then determined that she had fractured her shoulder. She was in a lot of pain and being in emerg required a lot of complaining to get her enough pain medication to keep her calm. She then went on the list to have surgery on her shoulder. Monday during the day the determined that she has atrial fibrillation and took her off the list for surgery. Through the night on Monday she had a rough night with no sleep. Tuesday we found out that they will not be putting her back on the list for surgery until her hearth rate settles at a number they are happy with. They are trying different medication to make that happen. We are all taking turns at night so she is never alone. As of now we are praying she has a good night's sleep, that surgery will be scheduled soon and for less agitation. That's all for now but I will be using this blog to keep everyone updated. Thanks for your prayers. Julie
