Unbelievable Development

 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

I'm sorry Mary! I hope for the best. It seems all the hard work and giving your mother has done all her life is coming back to her ten-fold. Thank goodness for angels like her and them. :-) ---Robbie

How blessed was your mom that the "guardian angels" were with her? It's a constant tightrope we,whose parents are aging, walk... Always, in the back of our minds, waiting for the phone to ring, with the message we don't want to hear. Which of us "boomers" can't relate to this? I'll be keeping positive thoughts for you and your mom... Lisa :-]

So glad your mom was taken care of. So many of womans heart issues are ignored . I haveheard of other women who have had leg pains that have heart attacks shortly after. It seems that its harder and drs dont know the signs as well. Will keep your mom in prayers. LORD BLESS THIS LADY. Lori http://beta.journals.aol.com/my78novata/LorisLaurels/

Oh wow... what a scary time for you and your family. I hope everything goes well with your mother's surgery. It sounds as if they might be able to patch her up, no problems. That will be wonderful. It's hard when your parents start to get older and their health fails. I'll be thinking about you guys!

I know where you are at from experience with my Parents. I will insure to mention them in my prayers. I'll also say a few words about you. You need the extra strength. My Regards, Bill. BTW--Happy Birthday, late.
