Hi :) Just wanted to post a quick update about my mom... she has been doing well at home! Aunt Beth has been helping out a TON and hopefully my mom and dad are finally starting to feel a little more rested after a few nights in their own bed. There is no place like home!
My mom went into A-fib (click on "A-fib" to read more about it) on Wednesday night but through an increase in her medicine to help combat this, she came out of it and is feeling better today! She had an appt with her new family physician today and said she liked him. He will be helping her monitor her Coumadin (blood thinner) medication, but at this point will be going with whatever the cardiologist and heart surgeon have prescribed.
I think as the week has gone on, my mom's voice is sounding stronger and she seems to have more "life" in her when I talk with her.
Mike and I are headed to Chicago for our friend Brad Hewlett's med. school graduation tomorrow and will stop in Lafayette on the way up to see my parents! I am sure there will be a big change, since we have not seen my mom since Sunday.
Thank you for your continued prayers!!! :)
