Update on Dorothy Hannewald

Wanted to update you all on Mom's situation.....The past several weeks have been so hectic and busy, just haven't had the time....Mom had her initial heart attack on April 26......she was rushed by ambulance to the hospital...they did CPR and difibulation in the ambulance and put a stent in at the hospital....she did pretty well for a few days....then on Tues. of the following week, she was in the shower...passed out and fell...hit her head on the floor and they had to do CPR/Defib again......we rushed to the hospital....after an hour or so.....she did it again.....another round of CPR and Defib.....she came out of it.....in the process. they broke 3 ribs doing CPR......for the next few days she progressed well....but heart was still beating too slowly....so they decided to put in a pacemaker.....that went well....so after 13 days in the hospital, we brought her home..... she needs 3 weeks of TLC and care before cardiac rehab.... so we brought her home with us to Ohio...will take them home around the first of June.......Dad also needs a pacemaker......but we haven't scheduled that yet......Mom and Dad wanted me to thank you all for your prayers and cards.......The Doctors  told us it is a miracle that's she's still with us....so we thank God for that.....lots of changes ahead....and I'm so thankful they got home from Texas before this all happened....they hadn't even unpacked their suitcases yet ! Will keep in touch......Judie Mathews ( daughter )
