As you know I was heading to Nashville for 3 days to enjoy all the festivities and country stars for the CMAFest. However, I guess it wasn't meant to be for me. My poor mother was taken to the hospital from the nursing home as her heart rate was double what it should be and therefore it wasn't pumping the fluid away from the lungs.
They are trying to get the rapid heart rate and irregular rhythm under control. They are treating her for pneumonia and the fluid is down on her lungs which is good. She is very tired but still her sassy self as she asks them if they want a knuckle sandwich whenever they tell her to do something. She did pull the IV's out during the night and the nurse said it looked like a murder happened in the room with all the blood. She has been pleasant with them but with dementia, she doesn't remember the call button and forgets where she is at. Any extra prayers would be greatly appreciated as I know God is listening!!
I did have to go to Nashville yesterday as I had the tickets for the first concert in my name and since my girlfriends and I were all meeting there, there was no way for them to pick them up. So I left about 12:30 yesterday, went to the concert, went to bed at 3am, got up at 5:30am and drove back home. Got home about noon!
I am going to refresh myself and head up to the hospital and relieve my brother! When my friends get back, I will share their pictures and mine so you will still get the whole adventure.
Take care and I will post later this weekend!
