Update on Mom

4/28 update - The stress test came back clear.  The doctor said Mom will have to have an EKG every year from now on just to monitor her heart.
She is being released today. 
Thank you all for your prayers!


The good news is Mom's incision from her surgery is healing nicely.  She doesn't seem to have any pain from that at all.

The bad news is Mom is back in the hospital. After two visits to the ER because of Mom vomiting so much and 2 nausea medications later, she was admitted back in the hospital on Saturday.  

We still don't have many answers, but as of right now her EKG came back abnormal.  They did an echo-cardiogram yesterday morning but we haven't seen the cardiologist to find out anything regarding her heart.  

After blood tests done at the ER we found out her troponin levels were high which they said she may be have had a small heart attack.  Several blood tests later, we still don't know much but they did give her 6 units of potassium because it was really low, and they also gave her 1 unit of magnesium.  

She was able to rest some which was good because after 3 days of practically no sleep and lots of vomiting, her entire body is completely exhausted.

Praying to get some answers today.  I'll try and keep you all posted.

Mom's Surgery

To God be the Glory!

Kay came to visit Mom at the hospital before she went into surgery.  She prayed with her to have peace and that her worries and fears would be gone.

 Dianne was sweet to come before the surgery and stay with us the entire time until we received the update from the Doctor on how the surgery went.

It was a great surprise to have Shirley come to visit.  She brightened our day!

Friends and Fellowship was exactly what the doctor ordered to help the time go quickly as she waited to be taken into surgery.

 Pam was a huge blessing to us as she was able to give us a ride to the hospital.
And then while Mom was in surgery we were blessed with friends to keep us laughing and not be stressing about the surgery. 
We had a blast while we enjoyed our Starbucks drinks :-)

Mom in the recovery area after the surgery (4/20).  We were happy and thankful for the great news of Mom's successful surgery.

The day after surgery (4/21) and Mom had already been up and walking the halls.  She was feeling good, with minimal pain.

And Praise the Lord, we just got news that Mom was released today (4/22) and is actually on her way home right now.

Ice Cream Social

Life has gotten so busy that I totally forgot to post this.  A few weeks ago my lovely widow friends and I got together to have an ice cream social.  We had a blast!  Laughed all night long and got to bond that much closer together.
