because apparantly, it won't show up, so i'll post it again

For those of you that hadn't known, my mother has been sick for MONTHS now. quite sick. she was finally able to go in and get some major tests done this morning, namely where they go into the groin area and pass a tube into your heart to inject dye. well, apparantly, instead of it being a virtually painless procedure with very little issues, there were some complications including a great deal of agonizing pain and extreme bleeding when they removed the tubes, so much that it took 3 nurses to put pressure on my mother's groin area in order to staunch the bleeding.

i received the call around noontime at work from my brother, and instantly told management i would work until my brother got there, seeing as i saw no point in walking a half hour home, just to be picked up immediately from there.

she was in very good spirits, though i believe a lot of that were the multiple drugs they were giving her. giggles were had. i made her a sammich and fed her pears.

they're doing additional tests on her tomorrow to see exactly what it is that is causing her wheezing, as well as whatever has been causing the horrible jolts to her feet that have been keeping her up at night. what little that we DO know, is that the left side of her heart is experiencing a dangerous amount of high blood pressure, though that's still sort of vague.

i'll let you know what's going on as i know it.

in the meantime? i need a nap.

*update* i had the nap, though i didn't sleep very well. they're taking her in this morning for some lung testing, and she said she'd call me and let me know as soon as she knows anything. thank goodness i don't have to work until 4.
