Mom Update

Round and round we go, where we stop, nobody knows!

I will try to make this story as short as possible.

Mom finally had her Cardiac Rehab eval and is trying to coordinator the EECP.
Her new/current/former Cardiologist was doing her best(?) to regulate Mom's meds and set her up for rehab...because if you remember when she had her last heart cath in December, they (meaning some of the country's best)said that surgery was not an option for Mom. That's when I went through contacting Atlanta, sending medical records, blah, blah, blah...and the physician there saying that she was not a candidate because of scar tissue, etc...

Well, that didn't sit well with any of us and so the next step was for my aunt to call in a favor. We do so try to go through the proper channels but it doesn't always work out that way.

Medical records were sent, reviewed, an appt set up and the new set of physicians see a blockage that no other physician saw. Mom is having surgery on Thursday to determine the extent of the blockage and what - if anything - can be done.

Once again, we are all incredibly hopeful.
