    she has been there for 2 weeks now and they don't know whats wrong with her yet.
    2 weeks ago she had a couple of days feeling dizzy so went to New Doc who admitted her for tests. Since then she has deteriated and now cann't speak, recognise anyone or even seem aware of whats going on or where she is. They have ruled out a stroke and all the obvious stuff, and they are at a loss as to whats caused it. She is having a brain scan next week to see if that shows anything up, but isn't it strange how you can go from being perfectly normal one day to this in such a short space of time and no one in the medical profession knows what to do., they say they have never come accross anything like it before. All the family are doing what they can, but its hard when the person you visit doesn't know you, and just keeps looking at you blank without any sign of interest let alone recognition.
    If you could keep her in your prayers it would be appreciated and a comfort.

    Oh how awful...sending lots of positive thoughts and good vibes your way. Not knowing what the problem is must be one of the scariest things. I'm sure they'll diagnose something soon, and then be able to treat it...I really hope so.

    Best wishes to all your family x
