Admitted

Mom (Susie) is being admitted to the hospital.

Her second EKG came back "concerning" and the doctors think she may be in the beginning stages of a heart attack. Her heartbeat is irregular. They will do a heart cath. The doctors used words that made my Tim very nervous.

She will be on the sixth floor of Doctors Hospital West within an hour or so.




11:45 a.m. update:

Mom is still in the ER. The doctors are trying to get her pain stabilized before they move her to a room. She is on nitroglycerin and heparin. She is in a lot of pain, both in her chest and she has a headache.


2:25 update:

Mom has been admitted to Doctors West Hospital. Room 327. Tim is still with her. He says she is irritated by the low-cholesterol diet they just handed her. She is NPO at midnight for a lipid test. She is trying to get Tim to sneak her some butter and cheese.

Karin, I continue to keep your entire family -- and now with an emphasis on your mom -- in prayer. I know how scary heart attacks and near- heart attacks can be. You guys just all breathe really deep and remember to lean on the Lord and those of us here who love you.

Special Note to Karin's Mom: Thank you for raising such an incredible young woman. You did an amazing job; Karin is who I want to be when I grow up.
