Please keep my mother, Marie, in your prayers. She fell and injured her hip; had a hip-socket replacement Monday, and all seemed to be going well. This morning, however, she's in intensive care with atrial fibrillation -- a racing heart rate. It's one of the health problems that she's had the last few years, along with the advancing dementia, and it's life-threatening. There's also the possibility of a blood clot or stroke as a post-surgery complication.
UPDATE 5 p.m. - Good news:
The ICU nurse said Mom's heart rate has come way down, and she's doing "fine," but Mom will remain in ICU.
Friday, jan. 12
Update: Mom's out of ICU and back into a regular hospital bed.
