Thing2 update

Thing2 has been admitted to the hospital.

She has been behaving oddly for the last few days, and her doctor and I thought that she was manic. I tried to get her to agree to let me take her to the hospital, but for the first-time in 31-years, she refused.

Eventually I had to call the paramedics. Shortly after they arrived she had a seizure.
After she got to the emergency room she had another one. It was terrifying and I have to admit that I got a little hysterical when the nurse ran out of the room when it started and left me by myself for what seemed like hours, but was probably a minute, two at most.

Now she's in TCU (one step down from ICU), and I'm rethinking whether all the apparent psych issues she's had in the last few days might have been a medical problem instead. But no one knows what the problem is. And now they are stopping a lot of her other meds, so who knows what will happen.


  1. OMG I hope they find the cause so it can be taken care of. Good luck to you and Thing2!! {{{hugs}}}

  2. Oh man. My heart goes out to you KIT. I know that feeling of being dismissed by the nurses in an emergency's a feeling of total helplessness. Prayers for you here.

  3. That is very scary, KIT. Is there an update on T2? I hope the hospital has a plan and a solution.

  4. What a sad and difficult time. There is nothing fair about health, is there? Take care of yourself and all the best to her.
