We have a friend (AL) who is sister to a friend and our Vet (ADK) for almost 30 years. I had to text ADK for one of the dogs, it’s been my “rule” since I ruptured. She told me what to do and that she was in the ER and would catch me up later. I found out yesterday from someone I just met but have texted a few times that she went into the clinic and was told by the lady at the front desk AL has had some bleeding of the brain and they can’t figure out why. So it’s not a ruptured aneurysm, I don’t think. When I found out yesterday, it did throw me and I was a bit of a mess for a short time. I sent a text to both AL and ADK sharing my Neurosurgeon’s contact information as I don’t think we have any decent ones in our neck of the woods. We used to, but one has retired and one moved to another county. I also suggested AL send her images to Dr.Q-W for a second opinion.
There’s many things that can cause our brains to bleed and I almost understand why the Radiologist can’t figure it out. I don’t know if she’s had an MRI or a MRA, I imagine she’s had a CT first thing.
I didn’t hear back from either ADK or AL so I sent a text to ADK’s daughter and asked. I usually hear back pretty quickly from the daughter, but haven’t received a reply. I’m thinking the whole family is trying to keep me from any stress which is what they always do. They are all helpers and not ones to ask for any. I’m unsure what I should do now. Part of me wants to just drive over to AL’s home to see if I can help her, part of me says no, I need to respect her privacy. Another part wants me to drive over to ADK or the daughter and say what gives? I’m in a quandary obviously. On top of that, I’ve been really busy this week with doing things as our grader has started and will finish today the first stage of getting our new tractor shed built. I have a couple of guys coming over to help get the temporary shelter up so I can get my tractor over here and all it’s implements. Any suggestions? Should I just be more patient?
Thanks all in advance for your help!
