A Major Situation

Been a long time since I added an entry. Part of the problem has been the condition of my mom. A week ago, she became very weak and shaky. A subsequent visit to the doctor revealed atrial defibrillation, so she was admitted to Baylor Hospital. More tests revealed slight pneumonia and congestive heart failure.

It was a tough couple of days as the doctors tried to find proper medications that corrected the problems without massive nausea. But she has improved yesterday and today. She is sitting up some and taking short walks with a cane. She will probably be discharged early next week. We are trying to decide whether her destination will be home or a nursing home. Tough situation. We covet your prayers.

Tim. Glad to hear your mom is home. Was she in Baylor Downtown, that's where I've been for 8 wks. Floor 13 with the heart patients. Small world just thought maybe she and I might have been "neighbors".
