View Full Version : Prayer Request Mom

11-07-2012, 08:17 AM
You might send some prayers or good thoughts my mom's way today. Her boyfriend called me to let me know that they think she had a heart attack last night. She's better this morning. She's waiting to see the heart doc to see if she needs a pacemaker or something put in. She had a heart condition called cardiomyopathy (enlarged heart) to begin with. She's been going through a lot with my older brother and his legal problems. She's a worrier, so I probably don't help whenever I don't always answer all of her calls or texts right away. Anyway, any positive vibes are appreciated.

And I hate to do it, but I'd like to ask for some good thoughts for myself. Mom's heart attack is just the latest in a list of misfortune for me lately, plus I've just been really down on myself. I could use some help snapping out of it.


EDIT: So, it turns out that it wasn't really a heart attack per se. Her heart just stopped. They are implanting a defibrillator in the morning. She said that the doctor said her heart starting up again, and her not dying, was purely the grace of God, because he doesn't know why.

LAST EDIT: Everything went smoothly this morning. Defibrillator is in, and mom is feeling alright. She should get to go home tomorrow.

I'm truly sorry to hear about your mom's health problems, Luv. I will keep her in my thoughts.

As for your misfortune and being down on yourself... take things one day at a time and never give up on yourself.

Best wishes to both of you!

Thanks all. Went to visit for a while during my lunch hour. They did an angiogram this morning, and her arteries are clear. The next test they run will be to see if she needs to have a defibrillator implanted. It doesn't sound like they're going to do that today.

They brought her in lunch while I was there, and Doug (her boyfriend...I call him step-Doug since they've been together for 18 years) immediately jumped up and buttered her roll, opened her jello, etc. for her. He turned around and said, "I take care of my baby." She is so lucky to have him.

Updated OP on my mom.

As for me, I went through an entire day without crying, and I actually caught myself humming at work ("Overwhelmed"). I'd say those are two fairy good signs that I'm digging myself out of my hole. :)

That's amazing about your mom! I wish her well!

As for you, Luv... I don't like reading that you're down. :( It does sound like you made a little progress today though, which is good. I hope you have a better tomorrow!

Chin up, Ms. Luv.
