How mom is doing

Mom has had a few setbacks today.

First, she was dealing with nausea all day. She thinks its from all the meds, and lack of eating as she really is hardly eating anything.

They gave her anti sickness meds to combat it.

Then, in the afternoon her blood pressure and heartrate went sky high.

They called the doctor and when she came she said it could be atrial defibrillation.

She said she wanted to get a second opinion. They did an EKG and that showed some abnormalities.

So now she’s waiting on another doctor to see her.

She may have to have more tests on her heart. The atrial defibrelation was diagnosed last year, but nothing was done at the time of diagnosis.

The doctor said it could also just be her heart working harder because of her collapsed lung, but they’d have to check it out and see what exactly is going on.

Its always something. She is just getting over one thing, and now all this.

Looks like she’ll be in hospital for a while yet.

The doctor looked at her drain in her lungs today and he said that her lung hasn’t completely come back up yet so he didn’t want to remove the drain, and then have to put it back in again.

She said She’s going to take another anti sickness injection tonight, just in case her nausea comes back during the night.

I hope tomorrow is a better day for her. Fingers crossed.
