Oh no. I hope everything's okay.
The jist of it is she fell pretty hard and lost most feeling in her legs. It took my dad about 3 weeks to convince her to go to the hospital (she's very stubborn). Three more weeks, a transfer to the hospital in Calgary, several xrays, a CAT scan, a spinal tap and a nerve biopsy later, and the doctors have no idea what the problem is.
I find myself taking all this especially hard because she and I did nothing but fight up until my wedding last summer. We did the mother-son dance, which was the most emotionally taxing moment of my life, and we agreed to start over. Now she's in the hospital, withered away to almost nothing, and it's the first time I've told her I love her since I was about 11.
In conclusion, though, she'll probably be alright, but will most likely be in a wheelchair.
