My 77yo mother has been experiencing gas pains (or so she thought) for the last week or so. Last Friday, she was rushed to the ER since she was throwing up anything she eats. Lab tests were done including x-ray, ECG and ultrasound. She was given medicine to calm her stomach while waiting for the lab results and was allowed to come home. Last Sunday, she was brought to the ER again and was told that based on the lab results, she already had a mild heart attack due to inflamed gallbladder.
She is now in the ICU since Sunday and is under observation. Later today, ERCP (a gastrointestinal procedure) will be done to her.
We are not financially ready for this kind of situation but we are also doing our best to raise the necessary funds.
