While I was at work today, my Dad took my Mom to the hospital with chest pains. They're taking her in for a CAT scan in about an hour, to look for a blood clot. Her blood pressure is 153/108 right now - which is actually down a little. They're not sure if they're keeping her overnight, or if they'll be releasing her later tonight. It probably depends on what they see in the scan. My family would sure appreciate your prayers!

Thank you! Love The hospital is keeping Mom overnight, because they couldn't get her blood pressure to a point where they felt safe in letting her leave. The CAT scan didn't show anything conclusive, and neither did the chest x-ray. In the morning they're going to do a stress test. (If you ask me, this whole ordeal counts as a stress test.)

So, right now Mom is pretty tired, and is waiting for a room to be readied for her. She asked me to tell you all thank you for praying for her. And, I thank you, too.

Love,
Savannah

Thank you. Love There's internet access here at the hospital, so I'll keep you all posted as I find out anything.

They did tell her that her thyroid isn't functioning at full capacity, and they figure that that may be part of why her heart has been racing. They did a stress test this morning, and also injected a dye to check for blockages. So, once the results are back, we'll hopefully know more.

Well, they're going to keep her one more night, at least. The test results won't be back until Thursday morning, so they're keeping her til they can read the results.

Her blood pressure is down to 130/90 the last time it was checked, which is much less frightening than 178/135!

Thanks again for all of your prayers and encouragement.

Oh, that's good her blood pressure is down, Savannah. Hope they can keep it down! Glad to hear they're keeping her another day for observation.

Cheer I just got back from picking Mom up at the hospital. She's home now, and resting. She's doing much better, thank the Lord. The test results all came back clear - No blockages, no clots, no cholesterol, no lack of circulation........The only thing that they did find is that the wall of her heart is beginning to thicken, and apparently, that can cause high blood pressure. She sees a new doctor in two weeks, and is going to ask about whether a blood thinner would be of any benefit to her. Thank you so much for your prayers!

That's wonderful news, Savannah!! I'm so glad that your mom's tests came back clear. I'm glad that she was able to come home and get some much needed rest. I hope that her new doctor is able to give her some advice about possible treatment for the wall of her heart that is beginning to thicken.

Somehow I totally missed this thread. I'm glad to hear that your mom is doing better. Has your mother ever been on blood thinners before? I was as a kid and it sure stopped my migraines, but I sure didn't want to cut myself. Those things always make me nervous.

I'll say a prayer that the doctor comes up with a good solution for her and that he can help her stay healthy.

I didn't see this until now either Savannah, but I'm very glad your mom is home and feeling better. My prayers for her to continue feeling that way.
