OT-My mom

I got a call tonight that my mom is in the hospital. Apparently she suffered a mild heart attack last night and is doing well now, but they will be running more tests tomorrow. It was mentioned that a change of diet and adding some daily exercise will be discussed so I'm hoping that this was just a wakeup call for some lifestyle changes, rather than the beginning of something more serious (my mom does not eat well and does not exercise).

I lost my dad 2.5 years ago to lung cancer, so I'm hoping my mom will be around longer. There is no way I can travel at this point in my pregnancy either, so I'm praying for a good outcome. When my dad passed away, my sister was a week away from her due date and could not travel to see him in the hospital before he died, so this scares me.

Thank you all--my mom is doing better. I guess what happened was her blood pressure got way way high and caused the heart attack because other than that, her heart actually looks ok. She has been in the hospital for 5 days now and will probably be released today or tomorrow now that they are stabilizing her high blood pressure. Hopefully with diet and exercise adjustments, they can keep her out of this sort of trouble again.
