Hey Omacneil - hope your Mom is improving and resting in her room with a view with some "trashy" novels and some peace and quiet admidst nurses/docs visits.

Please let her know I sat by the river staring at the moon last nite, which was shining so brightly, and was thinking of her. Wishing her lots of love and heal quickly thoughts.

I'm glad she's getting the care she needs. A quiet room with a view and a few days of wonderful rest should do her a world of good.

We're all pulling for her to mend quickly.

Re: Noddy Hospital Status
Waidaminute, I didn't quite catch this the first time around:

She's added a cardiologist to her stable of doctors.


I thought I pretty much knew what was up (osso's summary was good) but does this mean she's having heart issues as well?

(Thanks again for keeping us updated omacneil, much appreciated.)

So glad that Noddy has a room of her own. She needs and deserves the peace and quiet.

Hang in there, gal. We love you!

Wishing a speedy, comfortable recovery to Noddy. Hoping Mr. Noddy and the rest of the clan can manage their own dominions for a while....



Also, I hope that after that wait she got ahold of someone's dominion, squeezed, twisted, and shook it vigorously.

Have you ever been admitted to the hospital? The amazing thing is that anyone gets better there....

Well, the alternative had been really rough on her lately.

Noddy
In the style of Dys, I also never liked Noddy.

Glad to hear they are working on her potassium level and leg swelling. Important for protecting her heart.

Noddy status 07/25/2008
Thanks to everyone for the good wishes.

By enduring treatments illegal and immoral to use on captured enemy solders, Noddy has reduced her Edema by half.

Yes, her heart is now officially an ailment. After today's cardiac catheterization [1], the official word is that she had a myocardial infarction [2] about 3 weeks ago. She is expected to heal within 2-3 months.

[1] http://www.americanheart.org/presenter.jhtml?identifier=4491
[2] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myocardial_infarction

The most creditable hypothesis is that her edema is related to the Crohn's disease not the heart problem.

If all goes as planned. Noddy will be discharged to a rehab home on Monday to recover from the hospital.

The intake worker asked me if Noddy had a favorite funeral home. A brief, brisk period of counter questioning followed. The intake worker denied secret high rank in the medical industrial complex and any inside knowledge of Noddy's condition. The conversation ended with a grudging consensus that while part of the rehab home intake routine, the question was at best premature and at worst in poor taste.

It is not clear if the place has wireless internet access or if the staff is willing to accept help in getting that setup. Apparently most of Noddy's generation is not yet online.

While at the moment, his own health is (relative to what it often is) quite good, Mr. Noddy is also enjoying the rest.

I will post status again on Monday evening or when there is something significant or entertaining to report, whichever comes first. This is a prediction, not a promise.

Thank you for the update, omacneil.

I'm glad to hear that Noddy will be getting some officially sanctioned care. She's been so tired.

The chestnut she gave me at our first meeting is staying by the computer.

Oh, it's so good to hear the sense of humor (proportion, perspective, wit) in the second generation.

Thank you for reporting in.

Thank you, omacneil. I'm sure this is hard on you as well. Be sure to take care of yourself while tending your parents.

I'm sure your "brief, brisk period of counter questioning" would make Noddy proud. I can picture it perfectly.

Hugs to all of you. Crossing fingers for a caretaker on Monday with a laptop.
