kamataca Posted November 5, 2005 Share Posted November 5, 2005 Thank you all so much for your prayers! Mom is certain that the prayers helped her recover so quickly. She didn't even have to be admitted, which had been a 50-50 chance going in to all of this. Her anesthesia Dr was so wonderful, and spent a great deal of time talking with us before the procedure. He felt confident going in, even theough her EKG the day before showed her as being in a "pre-heart attack condition"! The dr. said that the machines err on the side of caution, and although this one made it look like the upper part of mom's heart wasn't beating, he could tell it in fact was (something about P waves). Good Lord, they almost gave her a heart attack over that one! She is feeling well for the first time in over a week, and (most importantly to her) her trip to Florida over Thanksgiving is still on. Sorry it took me so long to give you the good news, but we had to stay w/ her the first 24 hours she was home. I believe she may have been glad to get rid of me today...maybe I was cramping her style. Again, thank you so much for your prayers and well-wishes. She has a PET scan Monday, and an onc. visit the following Monday, but for now we are calling this a victory and celebrating. Bring on the boat drinks!
