    When my mom was up for my baby shower a few weeks back--she had some sort of weird attack...she was shaking...nauseous, could not sit up or get out of bed...she said the room was spinning....we thought it was her blood sugar (she's insulin-dependent diabetic)...we tested it and it was a little high but not enough to make her that out of it....eventually, it passed and she felt okay.

    After going back to Portland, the dizziness continued so she went into the doctor. They said it was an inner ear infection and gave her antibiotics. She took the course of meds and the dizziness & horrible headaches continued.

    So she went in Wednesday for an MRI and they called her back today and gave her a CT Scan.

    She posted on FACEBOOK that she has a TUMOR. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I tried calling her and she's not answering her phone....

    I'm in shock right now....not sure what to do....neither of my sisters are answering their phones....DH is not home....

    Updated to add....

    My sister is with her....now....the tumor is at the back of her head...they didn't even say how big it is....

    Quote:I think she's talking to one of my sisters...because that sister is not answering her phone and it's not going to her machine...the other sister is at work and is not allowed to have her cell phone on.
