Mom's in the hospital

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
My dad called last night - he had to take Mom to the hospital. She was having chest pains and could not breathe. He was afraid that she was having another heart attack and he thought that he was losing her. They were stuck in a traffic jam, on the interstate, when this happened.

He got her to the hospital OK and they admitted her. All of the tests and lab work have come back OK, so far but they kept her overnight, for monitoring. Since I've had no calls, during the night, I expect that things are stable.

The hospital switchboard won't put me through to Mom's room, this early and my dad has to get the grandkids off to school. I'll call, just before I leave for work and check on her.

When my dad said that he was afraid that he'd lost Mom, he SOUNDED scared. I've never heard him sound scared, before. Considering Mom's general condition, the rest of us expect Pop to outlive Mom. I know that Mom wouldn't last long, without him.

I'll be thinking of your Mom and Dad, Cindy. I hope everything is OK with your Mom and this was just a minor scare.

I understand how your father feels, it is scary to think that you may lose someone.
I really hope that it wasn't serious for your mother, keeping you all in my thoughts.

Thanks, for the good thoughts. They discharged Mom, today, after a stress test and a barium swallow (ugh). We know for sure that it WASN'T another heart attack but we don't know what it actually was.

I stopped in, after work and Mom seemed to be OK. She's tired and has a bit of a cough but, that's normal for her. She's eating and that's a good sign.

Fingers crossed, for a good Christmas. My parents, the kids and and twins are coming to our house.

I talked to Mom, at lunch. My dad was going out to get her a double cheeseburger (JUST what a woman with a heart condition needs). I'm taking that as a sign that she's feeling better. She's looking forward to coming to our house, for Christmas and playing with the babies. Mom says that she is NOT wearing that silk skirt, with three rows of fringe, this year. I guess that Rowdy is going to have to find another toy!

Oh Cindy!!!! I am SO glad to hear that your mom is okay!!! When I saw the title of this thread I was worried, and held my breath till I read she was alright!!! I know how scary that must have been for you all!

My prayers are with you and your family tonight...I hope your mother has many more Christmases ahead of her!

Knowing Mom, she'll soon be out, terrorizing the malls, on that hot red scooter. (That's if she can get Pop to drive her there.)

Mom's fine. I call, every couple of days. She promised my dad that she WON'T have a heart attack. Mom's really looking forward to playing with the babies, tomorrow.
