I wanted to thank you all for your prayers and good thoughts.
I spoke with the cardiologist today and he said he was very surprised she made it - she had 9 heart attacks while at the hospital.
in very very good news, she is off the cpap (breathing assistance) machine and breathing on her own. She is in a lot of pain now that she's off the cpap machine and didn't want to take pain killers but we were able to convince her that taking a dose of morphine would help her get through the very tough spots.
when I left, she was resting somewhat comfortably after a dose of morphine. her heart rate and BP have been stable but she is still in ICU.
the pulmonary doc said this is the earliest he has seen anyone off the cpap after such a massive heart attack.
