Update on my mom and life

So she did get the defib put in! I guess the electrical specialist came in and saw that the reason she went into cardiac arrest was because she has a congenital heart defect. Some of her wiring isn't firing right, basically. Any pain can set her heart off and she could go into cardiac arrest, be it a stubbed toe or a broken arm. Anyway, they thought it best to put the defib in to prevent her heart stopping.

They still don't know what the original pain is, though today the GI guy will be doing a scope to look at the insides and see if he can see something out of place. If they can find the original pain, they'll fix it and hopefully it won't come anymore and stop her heart!

She's hanging out at the hospital still and doing good, keeping a good attitude. She'll have to take medicine for the rest of her life, which she isn't excited for, but it's better than nothing, right?

At home, we've moved Brandon's big desk and foosball table out, so it'll be easier when I move. It's starting to look VERY empty now... but I guess that's ok. He leaves soon! :(
