Home in Raleigh

Mom's back in the hospital. Heart failure, pneumonia, and abdominal pain. The ab pain was the reason she was admitted. Didn't know she had developed the pneumonia until she got to the hospital and got thoroughly examined.

The size of the aneurysm in her abdomen has increased 33% in the last 4 months. It's still at an inoperable size, but on Monday they're gonna do an exploratory procedure to see if it may be possible to operate anyway. Without the surgery, the aneurysm will probably kill her soon. Then too, so might the surgery.
