Well, mum has had the operation! And she is fine
The aneurysm ended up being 8mm long, abnormal, and dangerous so we are very lucky to have found it like we did, and to get rid of it
(otherwise if it had ruptured, she would have died.)
They had to go through her skull in the operation, so when she came out she had 75 staples in a row (where you'd put a headband), and she had a tube coming out of her head aswell. But now she's at home, no brain damage or anything, just a little sick (but it's to be expected.)
So thankyou to everone who gave me so much support over the last few weeks, I can't tell you how much I appreciated it all
Mum has that awesome Professor guy who is so cool, she also has a cool surgeon. Instead of the "funny turn" being a possible stroke, the Prof. thinks it might have been a small bleed.
She had some more scans last week, and they found that the aneurysm is and abnormal shape, large and high risk. She's having an operation on friday and she'll be in the hospital for about a week. So I'm going back home to help out.
Yeah, also found out that my sister probably has a form of autism- Asperger's Syndrome so... yay. I think the only way I got through these last couple of weeks (especially this last one) was because i had a crapload of uni work to do, so I just put my head down and did it, not thinking about anything else.
everything will turn out fine.
Ok, so my bday was last week, right, and I was going back home on the weekend to see family and friends, have a good time. Anyhow, I get to mum's place and she sits me down with a tissue, I hate these moments, it's always something bad like someone has cancer, or someone's passed away.
so she tells me that on her birthday she had "a funny turn" where she couldn't see properly (images kept moving everywhere) and she couldn't walk, this lasted for 50 minutes.
she went and got tests done, and found out that her blood pressure is very high, and they found an aneurism in the front part of her brain. her gp refered her to some bith neurosurgeon who told her she'd talk to her collegue about surgery, and she never did. In fact that bitch decided to go on a holiday until september 10. And mind you, mum was just told by her gp to "go home and try not to stress" wtf kind of dr talk is that, why are we payinng that prick? Annnyhow, the stupid surgeon did fuck all, mum went back to the gp yesterday and told him what's happened and he was really rude and told her that she was small in the scheme of things, that dr's are intitled to have holidays too, and made her feel insignificant.
so she walked out, told a friend of hers (who works at a hospital) what happened and she got in touch with the secretary of Professor John Morris (professor, how sexy
) and now she's getting tests done and going in for surgery sometime soon.
also they found an abnormality in her brain that's been there since birth, it's some little weakness where blood goes gushing into or something, i'm a bit vague sorry. but i have to go get my brain scanned now, and i have to have it scanned every year now.
So... omg, fucking scary and worrying weekend. Poor mum, as if we haven't been through enough lately.
One hilarious thing that happened was my grandma couldn't think of my friend's name, she went to call her "sparkle" so from then on mum and i refer to moo as "Sparkle"
The non-dead clubs I'm with, now with limited addition, 'LIME':
The wonderful world of Harry Potter, see how wonderous it is!!
The clubs who don't fit under 'anime' or 'potter' but are equally as cool otherwise I wouldn't have joined them:
