    Default My mom, prayers needed

    As some have noticed (with my drop of wins in the arcade--lol), I've been distracted as of late. On Sunday I received a phone call that my mom (65) is not doing well and that an ambulance is at her home. Sunday and yesterday we were sorting out what was wrong. Seems that she was in heart failure and possibly had a heart attack. Today we got more of the story. She apparenlty had a heart attack within the last few weeks and she has an 80% blockage in her heart. She also had another blockage, but that blockage bypassed itself (how interesting is that).

    Tomorrow she will be transported to another hospital to have a stent put in. Work remains very demanding and although seemingly supportive, they still have high expectations. I think of you all often! Thanks,

    Default Larz -

    I am sending you hugs and prayers for your mother's health and your own. Please keep us posted. Out of respect, I will not try to defeat any of your arcade scores while you are away, lol.

    Take care,

    Jana

    Hi Larry... I felt something when I posted on your profile this morning..where is Larry. I did notice and felt you were gone...head hugs and love to your Mom.

    My Dad and brother had STENS inserted too in 2005 and are doing very well. Modern medicine, amazing what they can do, eh? I have said a prayer and many more to come when I lay my head to rest tonight...

    It is amazing how the body, heart will create a new bypass. It happened to my Mom. As you can read heart disease runs rampant in my family. Thus far, has affected a sister too...congestive heart failure. Mom and Dad both had heart bypass surgery...Dad 6..Mom 7.

    So, If you have any questions Larry I am here....and if no questions, just a ear to listen, I have that too...

    Be well. Get well wishes for your Mom...
    Love,
    Oluwa

    I'll be praying also. (((Hugs)))

    I gave up on the arcade quite some time ago. It's just too much of a challenge. I'd travel over and take advantage of it while you're gone, but there are a lot of awesome game players there too that I never could beat. I think it was Jane I kept facing the most. I got tired of losing.
