There is nothing wrong with Mom's heart. A "shadow" turned up in her stress test results yesterday but the doctor found nothing in the catheterization today. No blockage. They didn't even find signs of the congenital heart condition that her father had. Her ticker is ticking fine, thank you very much. And after being carted back to her room but before dozing off, she made sure to let us know that she told us that from the beginning.
Of course, we don't know what was causing her pain on Monday, so she will be seeing a doctor next week to check that out.
You should have seen the look of relief on my dad's face... and, I'm sure, on mine as well.
Thanks for your thoughts and prayers. I've just arrived back home and now must be off, I have to go do the grocery shopping.
