Saturday What a Relief!

Mom is home from the hospital! Such a happy day!  Modern medicine is a miracle.  She had a heart attack at 12:30 Thursday night.  Ambulance called in a heart surgeon and he was at the hospital 10 minutes after she arrived.  She was rushed to surgery and they put a stint into a completely clogged aorta.

The Doctor pulled out a clot that was over and inch long, he said it looked like a worm.  We are all so lucky.  She was allowed to go home Friday afternoon.  I find it hard to believe that they can do what they do, but thank goodness. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in women over 50.  It is truly a silent killer.  Mom had been to the doctor complaining about shortness of breath and tiredness but they did not do the right tests.  Be vigilant.

Out My Window:

I am looking at the yard I grew up in!  Where is the old apple tree we used to swing from?  All of the flower beds are cleaned and the crocuses are just coming up.  It is colder here in Montana that it is in Idaho.  But it is beautiful.

I will stay here a few days, try to get some projects done for mom, but I really need to get back home.  I was able to snowflake $447.00 to the truck this morning.  So we will keep working on that and try with all my might to get it paid off soon.  I cannot tell you how blessed I feel to have my mother.  She is unloading the dishwasher, I need to go get her to lie down.  People wonder where I get my drive.

Have a productive day!
