I don’t often post on here but everyone has been so lovely when I have and I need to talk to someone
Last year I posted about my DD2 having severe pre eclampsia. She suffered with her blood pressure and was medicated for 6 months after.
The GP eventually took her off of the medication and said to stop monitoring her bp but that she would assess her periodically.
In May at DD1’s hen party - DD2 had a funny turn. She felt lightheaded and vacant but after a few minutes recovered.
On Tuesday evening she had a bad headache and went to bed for a few hours (she gets bad headaches which go after a sleep occasionally)
I saw her and her 10 month old yesterday when we went shopping etc.
But last night she text to say the vision in one eye had gone ‘funny’
I immediately asked if anything else that side felt odd and it had.
I rushed over and an ambulance was already on its way. Her BP was once again high and they took her in and immediately started the stroke protocol which involved an immediate CT scan.
Luckily, this didn’t show anything significant - but they kept her in and did obs, neck blood vessel scan and bloods today.
Her bp stabilised as did the numbness.
They do not think it’s a stroke but are going to do other investigations including an MRI within 2 weeks.
She’s home now and feeling well but obviously upset by it all.
I just feel numb.
It seems the worrying never stops.
I am so very grateful it didn’t happen last week when we were all abroad for DD1’s wedding, but am nethertheless feeling very scared and feel I need to be in constant contact with her.
What if it happens again and she’s alone with the baby?
I feel so sad and helpless. She’s only just 25 years old!
