Mom is still in the hospital, but she was able to eat for the first time yesterday. Thats something like 4 days without food. They found a massive clot in her leg, they cant remove it so they cut open her jugular and navigated an "octopus" down her vein and put it in her abdomen. Hopefully if the clot breaks up it will be caught in that and then they can remove it. (It kinda looks like a mini whisk, but with the very tip cut. Basically lots of tiny wires in a cone shape)
She is doing much better now that she can have food, however she is still stuck in the hospital for a minimum of a few more days. Once she gets out of the hospital she will have to take a medicine that will force her onto a weird diet. Unfortunately she is already on a medicine that is doing that. Rather than the diets lining up they are actually almost opposite. The only meat she is allowed to eat is fish (and only every few days), the only vegetable she can eat is Iceburg lettuce (which has no nutritional value), she basically cant have wheat, or whole grain (Wonderbread anyone?)... So that's gunna really jack with her. Over all, things are finally starting to look up.
Vaygirl... Hows that diet going? I know I don't need to go on a diet, but I give you props because even if I did... I just like to eat too much, i wouldn't be able to.
