I am at the hospital right now. Yesterday I got a call from Jimmy and he said that Kayla could not use the right side of her body. I instantly thought that she had had a stroke. I came down as soon as I could and she was getting an EEG. She had 25 cords glues to her head so that they could test her brain waves. She had to lay still and keep her eyes closed. She also had to get an MRI and and EKG. They have taken numerous blood samples as well.
They didn't really have much to tell me when they did rounds this morning. The dr. did say that they saw something on her MRI and it looked like the blood was being blocked. So she is now on blood thinners. They are pretty sure that she had an ATI. I can't remember what the abbreviation stands for but basically she had a mini stroke. She could not use the right side of her body. We had to help her walk b/c she had almost no control over her right leg.
Today she is much better. She is actually in "school" (hospital school) so she is happy. She doesn't have much of an appetite either. Her levels are still very low and her ANC is still 0.
I don't know much more, the Dr said that she and the neurologist team are going to get together and look at all the test results to see what it is that happened.
I wish I had more information but this is all I have for now.
I can't get on any social networking sites from the hospital computer so I will thank you all here for you kind thoughts and words. I can see your comments in my e-mail. I love you all too and it is nice to know that there are family and friends out there thinking about us and praying for us.
