Update on My Mom

I wanted to post a quick update this morning before heading back out to the hospital to see my mom.

We went over to see Mom last night, I stayed later and rode home with my brother, Jeff. He brought me home but sat in my driveway talking for another hour after than...we didn't leave the hospital until after midnight.

While we were sitting in the truck, my other sister called to tell us that they were moving Mom from the orthopedic floor to the cardiac floor due to erratic heart rate. They said it was beating too fast and wanted to monitor her closer than what they could on that floor.

I talked to my other sister, who was staying with Mom last night, this morning. She said that the doctor told them that he wasn't sure what was causing the fast heart rate but he didn't think it was a heart attack because her heart enzymes were normal. However, they wanted to keep her on the cardiac floor for closer monitoring. Her heart rate got up to 135 right after the move to the other floor, then down to 115.

We aren't sure what all of this is about and they might not try to get her up in the chair today because of it.

Please pray this subsides and they can get back to the physical therapy. As it is...this will prolong her rehab and when she will be able to get up and around again.

Everything happens for a reason...we don't understand what it is but we are trusting in the Lord for the answer.

Thank you again for all your prayers. Again, I'm sorry that I haven't been able to visit each of your blogs, follow your lives and post comments. I will again soon.

Take care and have a blessed weekend.

Have a wonderfully blessed day!


  1. I love you sweetie, and my prayers will not stop.

  2. Will pray. Thank you for the updates.

  3. Thanks for the update. Thoughts and prayers coming your way!

    Have a good weekend, girl.

  4. I will continue to pray. This happened to my dad once too. We never did find out what was going on but he was fine after that.

  5. I'm sorry Jennifer, with all the busyness I completely missed that your mother was in the hospital. Hopefully they will be able to get her heart issue under control.

    I will be praying for a speedy recovery. Take care my friend! I hope you can get some rest in the midst of all of this!

  6. Jennifer,

    I have been running about a bit and just saw this. I will be praying for your Mom.

    Blessings to you and your family...Rest in Him.
