Mom Moved from ER to ICU to HOME
Friday, February 15, 2013
This morning my father called me to tell me he was leaving the hospital to go to work. Since he knew I was going to visit Mom today, he called to let me know that she'd been moved to ICU. Now I'm in a panic because he wouldn't tell me a lot. So I'm thinking the worse. I called Mom to see how she's doing, and to get the scoop - she's been moved to ICU because they don't have any beds available upstairs. Now I'm not in such a panic.
She has something called an atrial flutter. If they can't control it with meds, they may have to shock her heart. UGH! After I finish this blog I'll be going to research it some more. She said she got it because of her drinking and her caffiene intake. I don't know if it's something you have forever or not. I called my cardiologist to let him know for medical history.
That's all I know so far! Thank you for all the kind words on my previous blog and the requests to keep you all updated!
UPDATE!!! She is going home! Will let you know if anything else comes up when she comes home.
