So…an eventful couple of days. Forgive me, but I’m blogging from my iPod in the ER.
On Thursday, my mom’s cardiologist makes local headlines for putting in unnecessary stents.
Mom is offered a spot in assisted living.
She falls twice…within one hour, due to dropping blood sugar (which may be cancer-related).
When I see her that evening, I notice that her face and arms are swollen.
The next morning, Mom decides we should see the doc. When I arrive, she’s so alarmingly swollen that she looks like the blueberry kid from Willie Wonka.
So I take her to the ER. After hours on end, they find a blood clot in her jugular vein. They start heparin, and antibiotics for a UTI.
