tillyjane a/k/a my mom now has a diagnosis, a prognosis and a treatment plan. Not everything is fully resolved, but enough stuff is. Angiogram tomorrow with possible stenting and/or angioplasty, then discharge the hospital probably Wednesday morning. She'll have both short and long term followups, but she continues cheerful and energetic. So, another day or so of running around hospital juju, then life gets back to more-or-less normal. Just in time for my next chemo infusion!

I'm glad that your mom's problem is moving toward resolution, even if it's not there yet, and I hope the rest of her hospital visit goes as smoothly as possible.

It'd also be good if the rest of the week could be a lot quieter for you.

Although she's been in the extended circle of Jay Lake family included in my prayers all along, I'll add a special request on her behalf. Wish you all well.

Good luck to your mom!

Weird coincidence: 2 adjacent posts on my friends page talk about stents (a new to me word... and to my browser's spellchecker, I notice)... Medical posts are educational!

I'm glad they have a clue and a treatment plan for your mom.

Have you considered knocking over a complete stranger and arranging for a human sacrifice to the Gods? Your family has really had more than its share of anxiety and medical fu.
