Holy Hannah.

When it rains, it certainly pours.

This week has been a WHIRLWIND, both physically AND emotionally.

Mum was doing well this morning when I went in at 8:30. I helped her shower and change into her own nightgown, a nice change from the horrible butt-revealing hospital gown! She felt refreshed and looked good.

I left her to come here to her house because this is a big week at work. A client that I have been working on for a few months has the most important part of their project happening this.week. I worked until about 12:30 and then headed back over to the hospital for a visit with Patricia (SIL). She was quiet and a little weak while we were there, but I chaulked it up to having had a shower this morning. She has, after all, just had major surgery. We stayed for an hour and then I headed back to work.

At 3:45, Husbter and Boy Oneder came to pick me up to visit Mum. She was even quieter than at lunchtime and while she was in the washroom, BIL's Mum,who was visiting, told us that Mum had been having heart palpitations. The nurse came to take a blood sample, with good timing, as we were just leaving. The nurse told Mum they would be doing an ECG and the internal medicine guy would be up to speak with her. We left the hospital at about 4:20 and I worked until 6:30. I finally got everything finished up and made myself some dinner.

Mum called at about 6:30 to say that the ECG showed lots of abnormalities, but that it was due to something that the internal medicine said was nothing to worry about (PVC?) Her blood levels were not low enough to warrant a transfusion. Her blood pressure was quite high, so she was given a pill for that and they said they thought she was dehydrated, so they gave her a bag of water intravenously. They will be checking her thyroid tomorrow morning. Just when I thought everything was going well, it blew up. Ugh.

I spoke to her a moment ago and she was visiting with a friend, so she told me she would call later on.


I have scheduled the day off tomorrow, so I will be able to focus on her. Hubster and MIL have my boys taken care of for now, so hopefully, I will get a bit of a breather tomorrow.

So, that's the update for now...thanks for checking in. Pin It
