I talked to my dad for a while tonight and it sounds like things are changing slightly during my mom’s stay in the hospital. They originally admitted her for issues with her CHF because she couldn’t breathe well, and discovered she has bronchitis and the beginning stages of pneumonia. Long story short, she’s still unable to breathe well and her oxygen level isn’t rising back up to where it should be (even though the fluid has been draining from her lungs), which normally allows the oxygen level to come up again because there’s room in the lungs to breathe. The doctors are concerned with some testing they’ve done that she may have had an issue for a while with her lungs and her oxygen levels. I wouldn’t be surprised if this is true because she’d often fall asleep in the middle of the day for no reason. I wondered if she has sleep apnea and even sent her a link with symptoms and prodded her to get checked out, but she didn’t do anything about it. Now they’re concerned in the hospital because things aren’t changing with her oxygen level. They’re going to do some kind of test soon where they want to insert a tube to see everything going on in her heart and check to see if her heart valves are infected, etc. They want to determine if her issues are related to her heart or her lungs or both. She is wearing a huge oxygen mask today and can’t really talk on the phone because it takes up her whole face. She took her oxygen off real quick earlier in the day for some reason and the oxygen level dropped significantly, which is why they want to ensure she has as much oxygen as possible. Tomorrow’s tests will hopefully help the doctors figure out more about what’s going on and help them determine what to do next.
