Sandi is still in the hospital and won't be coming home anytime soon.
The MRI was finally done late yesterday afternoon once they had her stabilized enough where she was not throwing up as they had real issues with it and could not run the risk of her throwing up while in the tube. The news is not good. According to the nurse who told me stuff because Sandi was getting increasingly agitated and demanding to see the doctor, Sandi has had a significant stroke. How much damage and whether or not is is permanent is unknown right now as they are pushing drugs into her to alleviate the brain swelling and hopefully prevent an additional stroke(s). She has had a major personality shift and is cussing out folks, including me, has no idea what day it is, can't read the analog clock on the wall, can't work the remote, has no idea if it is daytime or night despite the fact the blazing sun is hitting her windows a bit, believes she has been in there for months, that I never once have come to see her, and that she has brain tumor that no one will tell her about.
I can't tell you how bad off she is mentally right now. The only good thing is that she has apparently regained use of her right hand having decked me and a nurse today and can now see out of her right eye again. She also thought, at one point, that purple spiders were on the walls this afternoon and that some sort of creature was in the hall. At another point she was screaming that we all were trying to kill her.
It is ugly and whether this is the drugs talking or the brain injury we may not know for several days to come. The social worker is trying to work on why we were denied medicaid and will be looking into where my appeal stands for disability. If this is permanent, she may have to go to a rehab facility of some type until work fires her and the insurance runs out.
At this point they have her on additional blood pressure drugs trying to hold her BP down, anti seizure drugs, some anti clotting drug, insulin shots, and half a done other things. She was more awake today but much more agitated as well. She seems to have stopped throwing up as she made it through lunch without doing it and that is the first time since 11am Sunday. They also are running some sort of magnesium potassium drip into her because she was so low on those and the drip is supposed to help.
So, things do not look good at all and I have no idea where we go from here. I'm home for the evening, eaten alive by guilt as I physically can't do what needs to be done. I want to thank everyone their support, prayers, positive thoughts, etc. It means a lot and is definitely appreciated.
