From Brother Kenneth...

Mum was rushed into hospital today, after staff at the home couldn't stir her when they tried waking her at lunchtime. The doctors at the hospital concluded that Mum had probably had a stroke. Her blood pressure is very high, and her pulse rate very low (35-ish). She is not conscious, and they not at all hopeful of her coming round.

She will stay in hospital tonight, but they would like her to go back to the home, really, provided they are willing to accept her so that they can "keep her comfortable" while she slides away.


Addendum: just spoke to nursing home/ken. "bleed on the brain" There is little chance of recovery and it's probably a question of "hours or days".
