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.

Thanks, Lizzie.
I'm just seeing this now. But your dad called earlier so I became aware of the setbacks. So sorry. Good to hear that all is well.
Praying for her full recovery.
