… since I asked for prayers, I figured I could ask again. My mother rushed herself to the hospital last night with pain in her chest and neck. The ER doctors said they found an ischemia in her heart, but said they didn’t think she was having an “active heart attack” – whatever the frak that means.
Today she received catheter in her heart to check for possible issues, and one of her arteries are 90% blocked. They can’t put a stint into it, because there’s an aneurysm at the end.
So, she’s scheduled for double bypass surgery on Monday morning.
So far in 2013, we’ve had to deal with the loss of my co-worker’s daughter, my best friend’s aortic valve replacement, and my wife’s diverticulitis. I really can’t take much more of this.
Obviously, posting here is on hold until Monday afternoon at the earliest.
