    I have already posted some of the details on facebook but have not had a chance to post here. Last Friday morning I found my Sister on her bedroom floor by the closet passed out. My Mother called 911 and they came and took her to the hospital closest to us. After running several tests including a CT Scan they sent my Sister back home still unconscious, saying nothing was wrong. We called 911 again and they took her to another hospital where she has been since late Friday afternoon. She is doing better and we are waiting for a rehab placement. It seems she had a stroke in the behavior center of her brain. She had one in the same place
    2 years ago. She is a 2 time cancer survivor and has progressive brain damage as a result of the treatments for primary brain cancer. (The cancer has been in remission for several years) The progressive braind damage is the result of radiation and chemo on her brain. While this is happening I am also taking care of my Mother who has scleroderma, gastroparesis and pulmonary hypertension and is on oxygen full time. I have been so busy I have not had much time to sit down and post what is going on.
    It has been a very hectic last several days to say the least.

    Sorry, I don't know how to "quote"


    Sister back home still unconscious

    That is the craziest thing I have ever heard!
    How did she get home? Did they send her back via ambulance?

    I would call someone in the hospital and make a formal complaint.

    This is just crazy!

    Thanks everyone for your kind thoughts, prayers and words. Yes the first hospital really dropped the ball on this one. Now my Sister is in a rehab facility. She was moved today and the facility is close to home so that will make it easier for us. I know she wants to come home but she needs to get stronger first.
    Right now I feel like I am walking a tightrope and juggling at the same time. with taking care of my D, taking care of Mom with her medical issues and dealing with my Sister. And I know you all understand.

    Lots of ((((Hugs)))) and prayers for you and your family. I too, would get an attorney for that first hospital, because I sure wouldn't pay for any bill that came from them and they should pay for the second ambulance trip as well, since they are the ones that caused you to call a second time.
