My mother is back in the hospital.

My mother has been short of breath lately and my brother wound up taking her to the emergency room this afternoon. She has been admitted to a room and will probably be in the hospital until Friday. They are draining fluid from her lungs and heart.
She was been suffering from congestive heart failure for years and has had several angioplasties since 1999.
She may need a couple more stents put in, and am hoping all turns out well.
When I visited her this evening she seemed ok, and not worried about getting more stents, because she's had them before, and recovery time is days instead of months like open heart surgery.
On November 10th of last year, she had heart valve replacement surgery and was doing quite well until recently. The last week or so she has been experiencing shortness of breath after taking only a few steps. Yesterday (Wednesday) she could barely breathe.
Please remember her in your prayers.
Thank you.

My mother will still be in the hospital for a couple of more days.
Today, with a walker, she walked from the bed to the door and back and was out of breath, otherwise she is fine, other than her back bothering her, which she has been taking medication more for several years.

Re: My mother is back in the hospital.

My mother was taken out of the hospital and over to the Caretel Inns of Lakeland in St. Joseph, a rehab facility, the same place my aunt went after her surgery a couple of years ago.

The Caretel Inns' website:
http://www.caretelinns.com/
(BTW, my aunt has been doing really well since her surgery 2 years ago.)
My mother had about 20 lbs of fluid drained from her body, mainly her legs, which were really swollen. She did not need any surgery. They just drained her of excess fluid, and kept her under observation for about a week.
She needs to stay at the Caratel for a little while, as she is on oxygen. I am guessing they are going to slowly wean her off it, and she has daily therapy to help her walk and breathe.
Her main problem over the years is the arthritis in her knees, which makes it hard for her to walk, and her heart trouble and the need for blood thinners, which keeps her from having knee surgery. (Surgery like that is risky because she could bleed to death on the blood thinners, or die of a heart attack if taken off them for surgery.)
Hopefully her stay at the Caretel will be a short one, and she will be able to go home soon.
Thanks for your continuing prayers.
