I must have just posted the entry about my mother yesterday when my cell phone rang and it was "Omega" telling me my Mom was on her way to the hospital and had suffered a heart attack.
It was a mild one, but on Tuesday she will have triple by-pass surgery. She has a valve that is leaking and they will determine how to fix it once they are in. She has a 95% blockage, an 80% blockage, and the last at around 90%.
"How did that happen?" she asked in amazement. "Cookies" my other sister, the middle one, retorted.
We are very concerned about my Dad, as he suffers from dementia. He is handling it all very well. He asked first thing this morning, "How is Theresa?"
We were able to take him to see her this afternoon. He walked in with his walker, sat in a seat across from her (they had her up sitting in a large chair) and said "You had a heart attack?" in this totally concerned, incredulous voice. "Can you believe it!" she replied.
I have faith she is going to be fine. Her guardian angels were looking out for her. Literally. Her friends at the Stamp Club she has for the grammar school kids knew something was wrong with her. When she slipped away, they tracked her down and found her almost passed out in a bathroom. They literally are her guardian angels God sent to watch over her yesterday
