Happy Holiday's to all of you.
Sorry it has been so long since an update. All was good until last Thursday, Dec 1, 05. I was at the house about 3:30pm and Mom was looking ok. Liz had given her an enema at 3pm because she was having some constipation issues. She had a little movement before I got there. Then all of a sudden Mom started to throw up a few times. Then she went non-responsive. Her blood pressure was something like 54/34 and pulse in the 30's.
I called 911 and they took her to the ER. After many hours, it turned out that she had a toxic level of one of her heart pills in her blood stream. What the MD told us was that she was dehydrated and the cardiac pills concentrated in her blood stream and made the pills work better. So that slowed her heart. In addition, she had a GI blockage.
