Update on Mom

We both had a good night's rest and are feeling better this morning.  
The doctors all explained that when someone is in A-fib, the treatment is putting them on coumadin (blood thinner) to prevent a stroke.  However, Mom's age is against her.  Coumadin has to be regulated and can be very dangerous, so baby aspirin will be the treatment for her at this point.  Hopefully, two baby aspirin a day will keep her blood thin enough.  Right now, on top of this new ailment, she has a cold and is having a lot of pain from her spinal stenosis.  
I am happy to have her home and will be making an appointment with the cardiac specialist soon. 
Your thoughtful notes and prayers are appreciated.  Thank you SO much.  ♥
