I'm feeling blue :( - NWR

So the other night I got a phone call from my dad.  He called to tell me my cousin was in the hospital.

Apparently she never showed up to work on Monday morning.  Seeing that it was very out of character her work friends were worried and kept calling her.  After not hearing from her they decided to go to her apartment and check on her.

Once they got there they found her on the ground unconscious.  Not only was she unconscious but had blood all over her face.  The ambulance came and brought her to the hospital and she stopped breathing, so they had to revive her.

Meanwhile her husband was brought to the police station for questioning because they were not sure if she had been attacked or not.  After some questioning he was cleared(he's a really nice guy so we knew he had not done anything) but still there were questions about what happened.

It turns out that she had a seizure.  She basically had a bunch of damage in the mouth area. I'm just so sad.  She is only 22 and she will now have to stay in the hospital for at least a month, while she gets many corrective surgeries.  I know that it could have been worse if those girls would not have gone to check on her but it's just awful.

I could really use some knottie vibes and t's and p's.  Thanks

    Oh, Jill, that's horrible.  My thoughts and prayers are with your family.  Thank goodness your cousin's friends checked on her, they might have saved her life!

    Sometimes people having seizures bite themselves, some people have bitten off their tongue, so I wouldn't necessarily "blame" the dog.  Not that that bit of information is helpful at this time, but I just wanted to defend the non-human.

    T & P for your cousin.  So sorry to hear that, but thankful she is still alive!

    My MOH was rushed to the hospital on Monday and had surgery this am to remove her gall bladder.  I saw her the day before and she seemed just fine.

    She definitely bit some of it herself but I guess a majority of it was from the dog.  At least that's what I have been hearing.  Who knows though.  She is stable but probably won't remember too much about the incident, therefore we may never know exactly what happened.

    That is sad but disgusting.  I'm sorry, I hope she is ok and they figure out what caused the seizure.

    I'm going to sound like an insensitive diick, and I do feel very badly for your friend, her family and you, but you should put some kind of warning about the content of this because the thought of a dog chewing off someone's lips makes me really nauseous and I'm not really that sensitive.

    I was thinking the same thing TR. I'm just going to assume that the damage was done during the seizure, not from the dog because I can't even think of that.

    :(  I'm really sorry.  Seizures are really scary, sometimes we just don't know what triggers them and a lot of people who suffer from seizures have varying reactions.  I hope your cousin is going to be all right in the end and that she gets the medical help she needs.

    Sorry about your cousin :(

    Why didn't her H bring her to the hospital sooner? Maybe I am missing part of the story and he was out of town or something?

    He was actually at work.  She leave's for work later than him. 

    Thanks for your t's and p's ladies, I'm very appreciative.

    Did you edit the post then, because I'm seeing all these things about the dog but nothing in the post.

    I'm sorry to hear about your cousin.  She is definitely lucky to be alive though if she was by herself.  A girl I went to high school with had a seizure in her bathroom and hit her head as she fell down.  Since she lived by herself nobody found her for a while and she was already dead.  

    I hope things go well for her and she gets better soon.

    Yes I did edit it, sorry.  It was too graphic before so I wanted to simplify it a bit so nobody would feel unfomfortable.

    It is crazy because she has never had a seizure before.  It's just so scary and there are not too many mays you can prevent them.

Things just happen some times. But actually they have a lot of anit-seizure medicines now..as long as they're taken properly they do a lot in the prevention of seizures. </div><div>
