I talked to my father and got an update on my mother's condition.

They have started her on a drug regimen including Cumidin to try to disolve the clot in her lung, which has led to a new, slight bleed in her brain. She has lost the ability to speak coherently and has tremors in all her upper body muscles; she seems to be incoherent most of the time. The doctors told my dad to expect this, they are monitering her closely to ensure that no permanent damage will ensue.

They have her hooked into a type of encephlograph to moniter brain activity and are giving her a new CT scan tomorrow to assess the brain in closer detail; depending on the results of that scan, she may require surgury to ensure that there will not be a more serious event...such as an aneurism blowing out. They have no way of telling until after a more complete and detailed scan.

So at present, her condition is serious, but stable, and only time wil tell what her prognosis will be.

Thank you all for your kind thoughts and prayers. They are a real source of strength.

I hope she gets better and does not suffer, Cat

Just got back into town and just read about your mom. So sorry that she and your family are going through this. You're in my thoughts.
