5:50 am phone calls aren't good either
Thursday, October 20, 2016
Tuesday at 5:50am i got another call from Life Alert saying my sister needed help. We got there & she was so weak and having such labored breathing that she couldn't get out of bed. My sis is a big gal and it took all our strength to get her up, into the bathroom, dressed then into the car to take her to the hospital. She did not want an ambulance called because they would have taken her to the nearest hospital, not the one where her drs are at.
In the ER, she was seen immediately cuz they thought she may have been having a heart attack. Fortunately that was not the case. But she was in congestive heart failure only determined by day 2 in the hospital. Why in the world it took 2 days to determine that is beyond me.
She is feeling better now but still having trouble breathing and very weak. A few yrs ago this same thing happened and at that time she had a blood clot in her lung. So SHE had to bring that up to her dr that maybe that was happening again. So hopefully tomorrow they will investigate that further.
I'm less than happy with the care she has been getting from her own drs this time. The support staff, nurses, aides, etc. have been great though.
So please keep her on your prayers and thoughts. I don't believe she is out of the woods yet.
