Hello out there in the world of the Real Life blog.....I (Mary/Mom) am updating you because to say the least, 'it was a big day'. Nancy was all primed to 'get outta' Dodge' some time today, but first two BIG things had to get done.

She had four (yes, '4') hours of dialysis ....that means NO food/liquid all day because following the big D, she was to have another type of catheter put into her chest so that when the on-going 'out patient' dialysis is performed, it will be easier and with less chance for infection. to the Cath Lab she went around 3pm. During this procedure she experienced atrial fibrillation. Her heart rate went crazy. Her stay in the Cath Lab was extended but returned to the same room about 7pm. With Joe at her side her spirits continue to be good and she says HELLO to all of you.

Needless to say, LLMC will be keeping a close watch on her another night....and that is a good thing. She also finally got to eat (Yeah!!). The nurses/staff are excellent and so attentive. Following a good rest, we are now keeping our fingers crossed for a Saturday release.

Thanks to all of you for continued prayers for our Nancy/family. Nighty..night.
