Last evening my mother suffered a massive cerebral hemorrhage.
My father called me when they were getting her to the hospital in Lugo and I quickly went there too. The doctors were really pesimistic there, it seems the amount of blood adding pressure to her brain was too much.
They were helpless there, they couldn't do anything for her so they sent her to Santiago. A couple of hours afterwards she was on her way on an ambulance to the hospital here in Santiago.
Shortly after, my father and me came to Santiago too.
We've been in the hospital and we've talked with the doctors that will treat her. They are pessimistic too. So far they have to wait until tomorrow to do some tests on her, see if they can find what caused it and if there is a way to at least stop the bleeding. Then they will have to find out a way to remove all that blood and then... see if she can wake up from the coma, and how she is afterwards.
Right now I'm sitting in the bed of a hotel room by the hospital, with my father totally crashed laying on the other bed.
Life can be tough sometimes, really.
I'm afraid I won't be online tomorrow. By midday they should have the results of those tests, then they will give us some more information, and I'll get back to you.
Thanks for reading, my friends.Continue reading "Three terrible weeks"
