Momster scared us
Momster hasn't been feeling well she kept complaining of an ouchie leg and having a hard time breathing right. She went to the doctor for her ouchie leg (before the hard breathing) and they felt she just strained it. This past week the pain moved up her leg a little higher and she got concerned and went back to the doctor. The doctor wanted mom to go straight to the ER to check for a blood clot but momster being stubborn wanted to wait until the next day when they could schedule the tests. So...she waited and went in by herself for the test because she really thought it was nothing. They did the first test on her leg and found a blood clot behind her knee. So they tossed her in a wheelchair and wheeled her to the emergency room. The doctor came in and felt based on mom's symptoms she might have a blood clot in her lung as well. So they sent her for a CAT scan (BOL...CAT scan) and unfortunately found FIVE more clots in her lungs. The ER doctor told mom that she is one lucky girl as this can more often end up being fatal. Momster started to cry and was pretty scared finding out all this news by herself. The CAT scan made her sick and she had an allergic reaction to the dye. The doctor's ran and put Benedryl in her IV immediately when she started to swell up. They wanted to admit her to the hospital for observation for the evening. Momster had a bad evening and couldn't sleep and just wanted to get back home. Momster is now back home with us where she belongs and is feeling better each day. The new medication is making momster a bit sick to her tummy though. Just want to say be thankful for each and every momster you have with your humans...you just never know what tomorrow brings.
