My Mom's In The Hospital - UGH!!!

Thursday, February 14, 2013

Just got off the phone with my Dad. She had an MD appt. earlier today to talk about her high blood pressure being too high since they put her on these new meds. I'd been on her case to call her MD to tell her, and she was being too stubborn. She didn't want to call and have to go in for a visit since she put on more weight over the holiday. UGH! Now they think she might have a heart problem on top of the HBP.

Ironically it's Valentine's Day - one she'll never forget - which has to do with hearts. Also, ironically, I just spoke with my cardiologist today to try to get some test results. Now if Mom has heart problems, I'll have to worry about heart problems on both sides of the family. I'm sorry. I'm rambling.

I'll keep you guys posted!

    You can fight this hear-disease that is in the family so that you don't end up with it.

I'm sorry that your mom is in the hospital, I was so worried about my dad while he was in the hospital last week with heart issues.. He is doctoring heavily now and i wish I could be with him. I won't get to go until spring to be with him.

    Hope your mom is ok. Think of this as a lesson on what not to do. If your mom has something that can be passed down it will be good for your cardiologist to know so they can eliminate that as a possiblity. Hope your day goes alot better. emoticon

    So sorry to hear about your Mom but at least she is where she will be taken care of. Why oh why do our Moms get so stubborn ? Do you think it might be because they won't likemthenanswers. You know by my comments that I am dealing with the same thing? I hope all goes well with your Mom!

    Sorry to hear about your mom. You can be proactive though and thus limit the chance of problems of your own. Hope your day gets better.

    Please keep me posted on how your mom is doing! I would think that you are leading a much healthier lifestyle than she is; so your worries may be unfounded. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
