Guest blogging ain't fun
This is the Girlchild reporting some unfortunate news. Around 5:30 on Thursday evening, my mother was getting ready to leave work and talking with her boss when she collapsed and had atleast one seizure. They transported her to the hospital right next door, where they diagnosed her with subarachnoid hemorhaging and helicoptered her to the hospital downtown. Friday afternoon they performed a cerebral angiogram and confirmed that she has a brain aneurysm. Last night they performed surgery to clip the aneurysm, performed by the surgeon she requested, and it went as smoothly as possible. Right now she is in the neurological critical care unit, and we expect her to stay there for atleast a week until they determine there are no further complications. The good news is that she survived long enough to have the surgery performed and the surgery went well. The bad news is that she will not be out of the woods for atleast 10 days. I just thought you all should know. Please keep her in your thoughts, and if you're the praying type we are accepting those as well. I myself have been worshipping at the Grey Goose altar, and I have to say it is quite therapeutic. So...hopefully all will continue to go well and next time I post it can be to regale you all with the crazy tales that arise with each phone call to family members.
