As if the Heart Attack wasn’t enough!!
As you know I posted the other day my sister had a heart attack. She has been in ICU since then. She had been on a heart pump, so the heart can rest. In the meantime, her leg where the pump was put in had been hurting her. She mentioned it to the nurses and the pushed it off at first, that the tube was in.
Well then, the pump was removed yesterday, and yet again she is telling them that she is in pain. Still they did nothing about it. Until finally today she continued to complain about the pain, they finally ordered an ultrasound and found that she has an aneurysm in the groin, as it turns out in both.
Unfortunately its a complication of the Cardiac cath, but they never did anything about it. Why my sister had to go 3 days with this pain and nothing done is besides myself….So now what they have to do is inject a medicine to clot off the aneurysm.
So stay tuned till tommorrow for an update as to how things turned out…
