Small Family Emergency...!


Had a small little family emergency yesterday, so this mornings post will be light!

I had to take my mother to the emergency room around 7:15 P.M. last night. She was having trouble catching her breath, some pain in her chest, and a hurting in the back of her neck.

At first, she thought it was indigestion...but then she started to shake and the pin got worse. I finally talked her into letting me take her to the E.R.

Got home about 11:15 P.M. They are keeping Mom in the hospital overnight, but said they didn't think it was a heart attack. Good news!

But they also said they didn't know yet what it was without some other test. Bad news!

After they put her on oxygen, she seem to get better and her color became better!
I'll find out today what the cause was. Hopefully, she will get out of the hospital and back home today!

I'll post an update when I find out more, OK?

Prayers for your Mom sir. If she is in the hospital, she's in the best place she can be, with trained medics close by so I'd try to stay calm as possible. I hope her prognosis is good.

I will keep you both in my thoughts and prayers. May she have a quick recovery and be home soon.

Hugs to you both

Well this is one thing that I can totally identify with. I am the sole care taker for my 86 yr old Mother. Hang in there, I've been told that as far as God is concerned there is no greater calling. Frustrating at times and absolutely totally satisfying at others.
