Not A Pleasant Weekend
November 19, 2017 7:39am CST
Yesterday evening, while I was preparing dinner, my niece called to tell me that Mom had to be rushed to the ER. I called my brother and he told me she had a stroke late in the morning, he found her unconscious in the house and she had to be hospitalized. Of course we jumped in the car and rushed to Italy to see her. She was sedated, I could only stay there a little time. My brother (who is a doctor) suggested me to go back home because there is nothing I can do now. Mom is 96, she had a long and happy life, I hope she can recover, I do not want to see her paralyzed or in a vegetative state. I am here waiting for news, If you do not see me around you know the reason.

i'm glad your brother found her and he knows just what to do since he's a doctor. i'm also glad you're close to the border so you could drive over immediately. i'm sure he or your niece will update you immediately when needed.

He always go to see her on Saturday and brings her to his apartment to have lunch together. I am glad he had the key of the house. He does not know when it happened exactly. I had talked to her Friday around 1 pm, he found her Saturday 10 am. He says she did not sleep in her bed, we suspect it happened Friday in the afternoon.
@ridingbet She must stay in the hospital now, she cannot be moved. No, she cannot come here, because I live in another country and she has not the authorization to live in Switzerland. Not to mention that she has the medical assistance in Italy. At most she could be moved in my brother's apartment, but not now, she is in coma.
