Many may have read or heard that on July 21 I took my mother Kathy to St Mary's hospital as she was feeling a little naseaed and been sick to stomach mid day well she went and rest and when I checked on her she didn't seem right so I checked for blood sugar and it was right at 300 along with super high blood pressure in the two hundreds over one hundreds.

After being at the er she told them of her acid reflux trouble and that her throat and mouth had acid well they order a gi cocktail after they lower her blood pressure some and gave some insulin . Long behold she could swallow the liquid and it made sick once agin so the doctor there order a ct scan of here stomach and came back to us told us she had a deadly stomach infection the lead to death quickly and after further blood work it showed she was having a heart attack. We asked them about her swallowing and they said they was concern about that and we express she may have had a stroke but they assured us that was ruled out..

Fast forward to Saturday morning early she was transfer by ambulance to Washington hospit center for the cath lab to check for the heart attack. Once again there we asked if stroke would cause her not to swallow and that her eye and lip look like it had dropped once again we was assured it wasn't a stroke that was cause her issue a she passed a field of test that the doctor asked her to do after being there a week and not eating or drinking the new doctor on the floor was willing to listen to us . That same day he order the Mir to find she had two strokes and In fact it had affected her swallowing among her balance and sensory. Before this they basically told her she could swallow and it was all in her head and they were like if you don't want eat were shoving tube down your nose . And then one doctor ask to try to swallow just bit of water and the. She got stringled and she said you didn't try to swallow. Once they figured out it was a stroke and she couldn't eat they started iv tpn nuriusment and that was hard on her body she. Gain almost 20 pounds not eat just because of this fluid .
