The World According to kcillini77

My Mom

This isn’t going to be a very well thought out post – just an update for those of you who don’t know or who I haven’t delivered an update to.  My dad called us at 6:30 AM on Saturday telling us my mom was in the hospital.  He didn’t know all of this at the time, but we have since found out she had gone in to ventricular fibrillation, which, to make a long story short (follow the link if you are interested) is not good.  Had my dad not been awakened and called 911 right away, performed CPR, and the paramedics not gotten there right away she wouldn’t be with us today.  Anyway, she had a defibrillator surgically implanted in case it occurs again, and she is coming out of a lot of the memory loss she had due to being without oxygen for a few minutes.  Things are looking pretty good.  She could be out of the hospital as early as tomorrow, but we will talk to the doctors in the morning to get the final decision.  We don’t want to rush things just for the sake of getting her home.  Thanks for your prayers.  We’re currently in Illinois, but will probably head back to KC once we know she’s settled in well at home and can see her grandchildren (my son and my sister’s boys weren’t allowed in to see her since they weren’t at least 14.)
