Just when I thought I could relax...


I got a panic phone call from my mom yesterday saying she thought she was having a heart attack. I hung up and she called the neighbors to call 911 cause she won't leave the dog at home alone. I shot out of here like a bullet. No make up and looking like a wet hag but it isn't important when you get a phone call like that. Cried the whole way and of course I hit every red light. Rushed to the house knowing she was at the hospital. The neighbor took care of the dog and the other went with her. The only way to lock her house is with a key. Do you think we could find either mine or hers. NOPE! We later found both thank goodness.
I got the dog and took off running again. I knew I couldn't go without the dog. I know you all think I am nuts and you are probably hitting the mark, but the dog is family. It means the world to mom and the first thing she asked about.
I walked into er and monitors/she didn't look good. Then they tell me that I am the one that looks like they feel? Thanks so much I think I will leave now. LOL

They ended up keeping her overnight. Did a battery of tests and they came up inconclusive. So they are ruling it as a very mild heart attack and released her this evening. That is modern medicine for ya. Tell ya you almost died and you can go home now.)(*%*%&_)(*&(%^*%$$@!#$%
So she is resting. They gave her blood thinners and has to visit her reg. doc.
I am toast. I was on the way home when hubby called and said go back and get her, she can go home. It is about 40 minutes to her house. So whip around and off I was running again.
Took her to get some food and home. Then I went to walmart and michael's. Tee hee. Need to cool my jets. I was mad at the hospital for letting her go home. Nothing I can do. I wasn't there to argue.

So my friends. Call your moms today. I was thinking that 20 10 wasn't gonna start out very nice. It seems there has been a turn around. I still have my Mom.
Hugs,Pea

Oh Pea, What a scary thing to go through. It sure does seem like hospitals just take you in and then as soon as they can send you home. Hope your mom will soon be feeling all better.
Hugs,

Thank you Cindy,
Yes, it seems these days it is medicate and release. That to me is NOT medicine. That is a bandaid on the problem.

Hi Pea...
& the dog is probably thinking..."Yipee... bye bye in the car! wheeee"..if only we could see life thru a dogs eyes huh?
What an ordeal..American healthcare at its finest...
The important blessing is your message about those who have their Moms..to give em a call. Youre right, we all dont have that oppertunity anymore.
So happy your Moms on the road to healing.
Peace, & Plenty...Kat
