Yesterday I spent most of the day in hospital with my mother. As preparation for her surgery she got a heart catheterization through the groin. We had to wait for a long time, but the nurses were very kind. Around 2 pm my mum was finally taken to the operating room. It took a while to get the local anaesthetic right, which was very painful. The procedure itself wasn't that bad. When it was ready the doctor had to put a lot of effort in to apply a compress. Back on the ward mum had to lie flat for at least 4 hours. She was very glad she didn't have to stay the night in the hospital, but it was after 10 pm before she was home!
This morning I've done some shopping for her. She felt better but the nerves from yesterday were coming out, so I stayed a bit longer until she was somewhat calmer. Next Wednesday we have another appointment with the cardiologist.
