On Sunday afternoon my Mom was taken by ambulance to the hospital. Her blood pressure was way too high and she was shaky and sweating. The doctors kept asking her if she had any heart problems, NO...Long story short...

This morning she had an echo cardiogram this afternoon she is having a 4 hour nuclear stress test to see what is going on. Her main Dr. (which all of us girls don't LIKE and think he isn't helping Mom)ordered us out of the room yesterday to "exam" her...this didn't set well with me at ALL!!!

Mom has been having this blood pressure problem for MONTHS, with terrible side affects.

If you would like to add her to your prayer list, I would SO Appreciate it and would like you to ask for WISDOM for the Dr's to get her blood pressure in control and that she sees the RIGHT Dr for the treatment. She did see a cardio specialist today and she order the nuclear stress test.

Thank you so much my dear blogging friends. There is SO much Power in Prayer !!! There is also a little tension between us sisters and I would appreciate prayer that I would keep my mouth shut when it needs to be shut....I am very strong willed and have very strong opinions and like to voice them and that isn't always a "good thing"...Thank you. I'll be going back up after dinner.

I will update you when I know more.

Thank you so much.

Ok Sweetheart, you can count on me to offer prayers for you and your MOM both.

On my prayer list.

Now, it would not set well with me either to have a doctor send me out of the room. I would have to say NO I am not going, and not move. If your mother requested it that would be another story, but a doctor I don't think so. I understand too much medical and they would know it.

Ok, I am off my box.

Oh Deb, I'm so sorry all this is going on. Of course I will pray for your mom and your whole family.

It's hard to remain calm when there is so much stress going on. Please keep us advised as to how your mom is doing.


Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

I know what you are going through with all of this. As I have been through it many times with my husband. This is the right road to treatment to begin with the stess test. I do not agree with her Doctors treatment of you all. It is so stressful for all of you. The cardo doctor will and should be in charge if it is her heart and should be involved with the treatment of her blood pressure. I agree with the others she ( the dr. ) would not get me to leave the room. As I too know quite a bit about the disease and would ask all the tough questions. I will pray for all of you. My the Holy Spirit send you calming and peace to help you throught this stressful time. Hugs..m..

Hi Deb,
Sorry to hear about your Mom, will be praying for her and for wisdom for the doctors.


linda said...

I just lifted up your Mom...and you, in prayer. Please keep us posted Deb.

Neabear said...

That is maddening that the doctor asked you to leave the room. She should have the support of a family member or two when talking with the doctor. I will keep your mother in my prayers too. Keep up posted.

I am so sorry about your mom and will say a prayer for her. My mom was in the hospital with similar problems for 4 days also. She missed christmas! But the good news is they were able to regulate her with meds, maybe you will have the same.... And...being an only child, I have had to advocate for my mom over the years (she has had multiple health problems) and that outspoken-ness comes in handy. Just corral it in when it isn't needed and use it when you think she needs better care! Doctors are not God, even though they often think they are!
Hope she is well soon! karen

Oh Deb! I'm catching up with everyone and I come to see this. I will absolutely pray.
Please update when you can.

Judy said...

Heidi said...

Hi Deb,
