We brought the kids to see my mom this morning, and she was in really good spirits. After the initial heart attack – yes, she told me she had a minor heart attack on Thursday night – she hasn’t had an issue. She is passing her tests with flying colors and said she feels terrific.
That said, the doctors told her she is getting a triple bypass instead of a double. I guess the bright side is that at least they’re aware of all the issues with her heart, and want them fixed in one shot.
The kids want her to get an arc reactor like Iron Man has, but that’s probably not covered under her insurance.
I’ll be out all day tomorrow. My podiatrist appointment – the follow-up to the Achilles tendonitis – is scheduled for 9am, and I’ll be in the hospital for the rest of the day. Mom’s surgery is set for 7am. The doctor said we should know what’s going on by noon, and should be able to see her around 2pm or so. I’ll put out an update when I can, but I fear it’ll be a very long day.
Mom also asked if you could send a few more prayers her way tonight.
