Dangerous and Scary right now...

Mom had her surgery on Tuesday to have her pacemaker put in. She is still in the hospital because of complications. Her pulse rate was up to 157 and she has been having consistent severe chest pain. Found out your pulse rate should be at about 70 or so.

Doctors think she might have a pulmonary embolism (a blood clot in her lung) so all of the sudden this has become a very dangerous time for her. She's been moved to intensive care.

~sigh~... nothing is ever easy for her.
We are all holding our breath. I fear that this hospital stint will reek havoc on her dementia.
