[Mom's] just waiting for the doc to come back & release her, really. Awaiting results of the EKG (I think that's the correct acronym for echocardiogram) doesn't really expect it'll show anything, though.That's all I have for now. To those who have been following this story since yesterday via Facebook or Twitter, thanks for your continued prayers.
Anticipates that doc will let her go home after discussing those results, but lady who brings lunch said "she'd be by in awhile to take [mom's] order for dinner and breakfast." There doesn't seem to be any reason to keep her another night, though.
Anyway - doc said cholesterol levels are *slighty* elevated - not awful - but may be good to start her on cholesterol meds.
And arterial scans indicate no major blockages, but some of the smaller arteries are rather narrow (and therefore, somewhat constricted), and so a low-dose aspirin regimen probably wouldn't hurt, either.
UPDATE: 3:00 pm PDT - Apparently Mom's still got more tests scheduled, so will be staying another night. Someone's not telling someone something....
FURTHER UPDATE: Well, actually, they released Mom at around 9:30 pm (EDT) that evening, and didn't keep her a second night after all. They never have determined any definitive cause, and Mom's feeling fine now, so let's just hope that aspirin does the trick.
