    UPDATE:

    The doctors have decided to put in a vein filter in the inferior vena cava which is the artery that runs from the leg to the right side of the heart. After further tests yesterday they found what they call a Saddle Blood Clot which can be very dangerous and can cause sudden death. This filter will catch and hold any additional blood clots that come through the blood stream before they enter the lungs. Also the Saddle clot is causing the right side of her heart to pump harder and faster which is making it slightly enlarged because the heart is "pumping against a closed door".

    The procedure is being done early this afternoon and she is currently in the ICU. The good news is she is still in stable condition and they have her blood pressure and heart back to a more normal rate.

    Thank you to everyone that is sending prayers and pixie dust!

    thinking of you and hoping the operation goes well









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    GOOD NEWS!

    The procedure to insert the vein filter went smoothly. She is out of the ICU and resting comfortably. Her oxygen levels started improving immediately and she is out of immediate danger.

    She will remain in the hospital for the next couple of days until her blood levels get to where they need to be. The filter will remain in at least until she is off the blood thinners which could still be anywhere from a month to a year, depending on how quickly the clots dissolve.

    Thanks everyone so much for the pixie dust, thoughts and prayers. Positive energy is a powerful tool.

    This is excellent news! Thank goodness.

    Just make sure she takes it easy and follows the doctor's instructions.
