In any event, both kids have exhiocardiograms today at the same hospital and then appointments with a cardiologist. M will attend, either as a patient or a parolee. That doc is certainly going to take any issues with the kids seriously.
The room that she is in is in the new wing of the hospital and the rooms are fantastic (although dully decorated). She is on the 8th floor and can see all the way home. This is a single room with a sitting area for visitors with a sleep sofa, recliner, regular chair and a TV (in addition to the TV by the patient bed). The nurses are very nice, these are easier rooms to work in than the main hospital wing.
Maybe M will send her own update later- she is having computer withdrawal since the internet is down on the family library computers!
