Wednesday morning update...

We don't have any great news. The MRI showed an area of swelling in her brain. It may have been caused by the influenza we had or from dehydration from her vomiting. They told us yesterday morning after the MRI about the swelling and infection in the brain. The plan was to get a dose of steroids through the IV then go home with oral steroids. The neurologist came back while we were waiting for the IV med and told us even worse news which is that the radiologist felt like he could not rule out a stroke. They wanted to do another MRI that only takes 10 minutes to check the veins and arteries to determine if it really was a stroke and if so what type.
