And now what did you do TODAY?


Recommended Posts

Sitting at the ER. My mom was having chest pains and she and her husband were keeping the kids for me, so we're all here and waiting.While I was pulling up the thread the admitting nurse told me the EKG is normal and they are going to run more tests.She was able to walk in from a parking spot 80 feet from the door so I am hopeful.Will update later.Brent

Sending good vibes you're mom's way.

She is in the ICU, but while it is heart related it sounds like it wasn't a stroke or heart attack. She is doing a stress test this morning and we should know more soon. She did say her BP was really high, 190/???. Hoping we can tackle that problem and that will help things. A wake up call is best case.

Thanks guys for the concern. Keeping my spirits up.

Mom was released today and got home around 6:30 or 7. Her heart is showing up as fine, but her BP was still elevated. She came home with some BP meds and recommended "taking it easy" for a while. They still don't know what caused it, but she seems to be doing OK. It seems like the "wake-up call" scenario is what is playing out, so I'm pretty thankful for that. She's tired, but in good spirits, and I stopped by with the kids to see her right after she got home.

After being on the road for 3-4 hours today dealing with childcare, it's time to pass out and hope tomorrow has a bit less excitement thrown my way.

Hi Brent, 


I'm glad to hear that things are smoothing out for your mom.  Wake up calls can go so terribly wrong.  I have an inlaw who has WPW Syndrome.  Make sure that any cardiologist involved rules this out (or as a possibility, as the case may be).  


Edit: Wow, that wikipedia article was a little much.  Try this quick link to Mayo Clinic instead.
