My mom fainted and collapsed a couple days ago. She is a very healthy active 60 woman. Dad called 911, etc, she was admitted to the hospital and they are treating her for diverticulitis.
I’m 3,000 miles away and have been googling everything. Not always a good idea. Her first night in hospital her blood pressure dropped because she’s still bleeding. They’ve been doing the antibiotics and fluids and added iron because of the drop in blood pressure.
The doctor didn’t seem concerned according to my dad...but I’m scared to death about tonight, her second night there. What if it happens again, what if it gets worse, what if she needs emergency surgery? What if it’s something worse?
I know I’m overthinking and worrying. Your stories are encouraging and helpful.
