Lazy Saturday

We are just laying around snoozing today. "Daddy" came & put on the storm windows & got the heat-blowy box running, so it's nice & warm now. Emma growled at him when he came in, *snicker, snicker*, she's very protective of Mama.

Mama spent time at the hospital with Auntie Lori yesterday. The ben V-E-Ts still aren't sure what's going on. Poor Auntie had a terrible headache & the nursie had to give her some stuff that knocked her out. She told Mama today that they are going to do something called a Lumbar Puncture (ouchie!) to check the pressure of her cerebral fluid. Apparently if the pressure is too high there can be stroke-like symptoms, very bad headaches & lots of other symptoms that Auntie Lori has been experiencing. What p*sses Mama off about all this is that 6 months ago, when Auntie Lori started having terrible headaches & passing out, none of the bean V-E-Ts around here took her complaints seriously. She ended up going to another V-E-T 100 miles away to be treated. He diagnosed her with a certain type of migraine. She was better for awhile, but now she's very sick again. Mama says she just wants to scream!!!
Hopefully now they will find out for sure what is wrong & fix it. If it is the cerebral pressure thing, then she will have to have brain surgery to have a thing called a shunt put in to drain the fluid. Please keep her in your thoughts & prayers & that they finally figure out the problem & get Auntie Lori healthy again.

Illegal Mommy Communication- Fin's dad had a brain surgery which ended with him having a spinal fluid leak, brain stuff can be so scary. I hope Aunt Lori gets the treatment she needs.
