I spoke to my friend's yesterday (Sat) and asked about her mom and how the procedure went on Friday.
Well she was taken into the operating room and just before they wanted to start with the procedure her blood pressure went down so far that they almost lost her and they decided not to do anything.

Later in the afternoon on Friday she called home and started telling her husband about some stuff that had to be done.

However this is the message that my friend sent me this morning (Sun).


She stabilized enough to go to a normal room. Her pressure is staying steady, her pulse drops pretty low, but she is sitting up. Not like before the procedure. She is on IV anti fluid medication to help pull the fluid out of her lungs which is part of the problem She became so unstable yesterday during the procedure. So the next step, is she and my Dad have to make a decision. If she is stable enough, Monday morning ( they found 4 blockages) on the right side. This is a very high risk thing to do. The only other choice is go home on meds and oxygen live a sedentary life and wait. That thought she told me is not something she could take. We wait. Hope this keeps you up to date.



Please keep praying.

Thank you.

I am praying for your friend and her mother. I hope she gets strong enough to go through with the procedure and does well.

I don't know if you have discussed this before on another thread but I was wondering how the health care is in the Netherlands. Is it unniversal? Is everyone covered?

We have universal healthcare in NL. Everyone is covered.
