Hi, My dad was diagnosed with GBS/ Miller Fisher Variant the end of Apr. 07. He is also 63, and your moms situation sounds alot like my dads. He was in a normal hospital room for 2 weeks until he got an infection (pneumonia) then they finally moved him to ICU and had ventilate him. He was on the vent for almost 1 month until they did the trach to keep his airway open. Even then he needed the vent to help him breathe for about another week. He still needs occasional oxygen but doing a lot better. Monday will be 8 weeks and he is now in a rehab center. I am going to see him today. It’s a slow slow process of getting better. Your mom and your family are in my thoughts. Kim
