Hello everyone. I am posting what has happened to my mom in the last 3 days.
Sat. she was perfectly fine, sitting up and making sense and seemed normal. Same thing all of Sunday until 8:15pm, when she stopped breathing and then her heart stopped! The rapid response team went in and opened her up right there in her room, and it took half an hour to get her heart started again. When they did they moved her downstairs to the CVU- cardiovascular unit. Where she was all night last, in critical condition. They left her chest open the entire night, and the doctor was in there several times during the night. This morning the doctor went in and took to OR because he found that she was bleeding behind her heart!! Well, she came through that, and is in ICU where so far she is stable. They want her to come out of sedation on her own. However they are VERY concerned about brain damage. I am writing this to help me keep things straight, and last night I cried,and I got 3 hours of sleep I was so worried. So now I am going to just take it one day at a time.
So thats whats going on now. Thanks for reading.
