Your Mom needs a DR. now !!! She may not have the time for you too take a day or two, or even longer to hunt for another Dr. We are talking minutes here, and that does not mean hours or days. If it affects here heart like it did mine; she may not even survive while on the ventilator if her heart stops while the Dr. is waiting around. I am so disgusted with stuff like this going on with your Mom. Why, Why, in the world don’t Drs. learn about this in school ? Why, is my sad responce to this so called Dr. It seems like people with GBS are still in the dark ages when it comes to knowledge and the seriousness of GBS. I just can’t believe what is happening. I am praying for your Mother now. Let us know and hope you get her help before you even read this.
