Week 8 - The only thing that matters
My mom, aka, Grandma around here, started having trouble breathing last week when we took a beautiful fall walk. She sat, rested, and dismissed it. The same thing happened the next day. Monday, she was sure she might be coming down with something because she felt achy and couldn't sleep. Tuesday, she woke up with pressure in her chest but finally went back to sleep. Wednesday, I noticed she looked pale and was rubbing her chest certain she'd pulled a muscle. Thursday, I finally convinced her to go to the doctor, and took her to the emergency room instead of a doctor. She'd had a heart attack.
Right now, she is having bypass surgery and that's the only thing that matters.
