Presumably you are posting here because the diagnosis is GBS. However, the talk of removing her from life support suggests otherwise.

I have heard, and read, that it is not unusual to be hospitalized. In fact, the information on this website states, in part:

“GBS in its early stages is unpredictable, so except in very mild cases, most newly diagnosed patients are hospitalized. Usually, a new case of GBS is admitted to ICU (Intensive Care) to monitor breathing and other body functions until the disease is stabilized”

There should be a team of doctors, including a neurologist, and treatment should be aggressively initiated.

Hope the best for your mother. And you.
