Rob and I both slept in the living room with her so we could help her if she needed anything. I didn't sleep, but watched her all night. During the night she vomited and got much worse. She couldn't stand up and when we tried to move her, she was dead weight and rolled onto her back.
We managed to get her into the car and Dr B confirmed my diagnosis. He took blood to see if there was some underlying cause. Then he gave her some medicine to help the dizziness. He suggested she spend the night so they could observe her and start IV fluids if necessary.
Dr B just called. The labwork was good, nothing like kidney or liver disease and no obvious signs of cancer. He says she just seems to have a really bad case of vestibular disease.
Just as he was getting ready to start an IV, one of the techs got Tess to drink and even eat a little. If she can keep it down, she should start improving. She still can't move without flipping over and her eyes are still jumping around, so the dizziness hasn't calmed down yet.
If she's improving, she should be able to come home tomorrow afternoon but she'll need intensive nursing care.
Please keep Tess in your thoughts. She needs all the help she can get.
