Update On Mum

Hey everyone its Ben again just a quick update on Mum.
Mum was in some Pain last night and was moved immediately. She has now been moved to a larger Hospital so that she could get a Angiogram, which is where they put a camera into your artery either in the groin, wrist or neck. Mums was in her wrist. They found like her Dad she has Congenital Heart Disease which also means me and harry need to go get checked out. Mum has been put on an Emergency list for a QUADRUPLE Heart Bypass. She has two blocked Valves and two that are 80% blocked. she could be having the operation anytime in the next few days and then she will be in the hospital for a week after that and then house bound for about 4 weeks. so im sure she will be posting lots of blogs to keep herself occupied :).
i would just like to thankyou all for your lovely comments and im sure it means alot to mum and it gives her something to take her mind off all te needles :).
if anyone is calling this evening we are going back to the hospital and will not be back until after half past Nine.
Thankyou for all your comments and no Worries mum is a fighter

Karin Corbin said...

I am so glad she made it to the hospital in time to get the kind of care that can help her have a long and productive future with her family and her miniature friends.
Ben thank you and your mother for taking the time in your families crisis to make sure her friends are kept informed of the situation. That is very considerate of your family and shows what extremely high standards you all have for quality relationships and friendships.

Snowfern said...

thanks for the update Ben, hugs to you and your mum (but not too tightly hee hee), get well soon Debbie!

Sans said...

Like your son says , Fighter! :) So yes, you are going to be fine, Debbie :). It's good to clear the blocks . Many of my friends do and due to regular check ups , find out about their choked arteries when they are healthy . And thank you Ben, for keeping us updated and I am sure you will check in and let us know periodically how mummy is doing until she can do it herself :).

Liberty Biberty said...

My dad has never been better since he had his heart bypass.
Please let Debbie know we're all thinking of her.

Hi Ben,
I hope Debbie gets well very very soon. I know few people who had bypass surgery with no problems at all, but it always sounds scary. I´m sure it will be fine. Also, good luck for you and Harry on your checkouts!
