Nana update

Last week on March 1st, my Nana had to go back to the hospital again for fluid retention in her lungs. The doctors figured out that why she was having her breathing and leg-swelling problems was because her heart wasn't pumping effectively. They gave her an electric shock on March 3rd to get her heart to beating in a normal tempo. Then she had to have a test done on her for a leaky valve in her heart... that was done on 7am Monday (why she had to be transferred to another hospital at 2AM I'll never know). Eventually, she had her heart surgery Tuesday morning (something about a stent and angioplasty - no valve surgery as of yet) She had to rest flat on her back for hours before they let her sit up.

Today, we get a call from the nurse at ICU and after all that, she can come home today! Yay!! :-)
