A semi-sigh of relief
Well, by no means is she back to 100%, but I believe mom is definitely out of the woods. She is still in ICU hooked up to "18 different monitors and IVs", but I think that is just fine!
Yes, it was a heart attack and they will be performing a cardiac catheterization on Monday or Tuesday (was supposed to be today) to determine the next course of action. She is hoping to be home by Tuesday or Wednesday, but we have to wait on the results of the catheterization to know for sure.
She sounds much, much better than the first time we spoke and has been able to catch up on a few good books and movies. Luckily, she thought to bring her DVD player and her photos with her, so she is never truly 'alone'.
Thanks for all the good wishes and more news as it develops!
