Grandma Update

Monday, April 19, 2010

I appreciated your prayers and support so much this weekend! I apologize for withholding an update. My Grandma was admitted on Friday and they were able to stabilize her heart rate. They adjusted her medications, but her episodes have continued. They are no longer allowing her to get out of bed unassisted, as she's fainted in the hospital a couple of times. During her episodes her heart rate drops to the 40's.

They have decided to move forward with a pacemaker, which she will be getting this morning. No time yet on when exactly. While I understand it is a pretty routine surgery and she will be discharged tomorrow, I would still appreciate more prayers!

***UPDATED***
The surgery is slated for 12:00, but she just experienced another bad episode. It may be pushed back or rescheduled depending on how the day progresses.
