Our day started with a phone call at 6.20am. It was my sister somewhat upset.
Sean answered the phone thinking it was one of my friends. I talked to her - she was upset and saying that mum had gone in to hospital. I repeated what she said to me "your mum has gone in to hospital?"...........then the voice on the other end said "no Sand, it is mum"
My heart dropped - such a terrible shock.
She had just been taken to hospital in the ambulance. My dad and sister were to follow in the car. Poor old Dad and Maryanne were really shocked, stunned and upset. Not a nice thing to go through.
She had some sort of turn which the doctors think is a TIA - mini stroke. She had numerous tests but all came back clear. She has shocking high blood pressure and diabetes on insulin - the medicos seem to think it was the TIA though.
We brough her home at lunchtime. All she kept saying in hospital was "I need to go home".......she's a stubborn thing. It was great to see her improve though.
The trip there for me seemed to be such a long journey. I just wanted to get there to see her.
Sean's mum and our friend helped out with getting the kids to and from school so that Sean and I could just take off. It was great to just drop everything and go.
We are all exhausted now and in much need of sleep.
