I'm Tired

Today Mom was supposed to be discharged. 45 minutes before the ambulance arrived to take her back to Henry Ford Village her heart rate jumped to 130. She was dozing in her chair and I was watching the monitor wondering if I should say something to the nurses. But the nurses were watching it too and called the doctor. It was very discouraging for Mom as the ambulance people stood there waiting for the doctor to call back and when he did he said she couldn't be discharged and maybe tomorrow. She has been in good spirits but tonight she wrapped herself in the prayer shawl the the janitor at Mary's school had sent her and said she was going to sit there and feel sorry for herself.

That's heart-breaking. I don't blame her one bit for retreating to feel sorry for herself. Thanks for the update.
