Last couple days

My family had some not-fun stuff happen over the last couple days. My Mom was admitted to hospital with chest pains on Wednesday night. Found out then from the docs on call that she had had a "tiny" heart attack, and that they were going to continue running tests. She had an angioplasty yesterday, and all of her arteries are completely clear and a-okay (yay!). The last doc we talked to said that there was damage to a "large part of her heart", and all of us were so shocked by this that none of us thought to ask them to define it more. Finding out today though. They did say that this type of damage is totally reversible so long as she gets rest, de-stresses, and takes care. We were assured that the type of heart attack she had is one that is they type that the nurses hope for, as it's much less serious. The outcomes are almost always really good. She's feeling much better now, thank God, but will be in the hospital probably until Sunday.

    I'm glad your mom is alright! It sounds scary but at least everything sounds pretty positive for moving forward :)

    Thanks ladies! Apparently, it wasn't a heart attack, but a takotsubo myocardiopathy. Treatable, and I spoke to Mom, and she sounds like her old self again, and is wanting to go home. She's allowed to walk around now, and has done 3 laps around the ward she's on. And, there's a bunny looking out for her below her window. This is neat because Mom and Dad have *loads* of rabbits around their house, and have had as many as 5 in their yard at once. They used to run away from us, but now they stay put even if one of us slowly walks by at close range.
