For a few days Aunt Katie has been having trouble breathing and would get tired very quickly. Yesterday it got severe enough that she called the rescue squad that took her to Nash General Hospital in Rocky Mount. Better known as "Trash General". They detected blood clots, one in her lung and more in her legs and gave her options for other area hospital that were more capable of handing this type of situation so she opted for Wake Med in our capital of Raleigh.
They will be doing a procedure similar to a heart cath. that will insert a type of mesh that will act as a filter to catch any clots that try to get to her heart, which would kill her instantly. She is in one of the very best facilities we know of so we are confident she is getting the best care possible.
I will keep you updated as I learn more and ask that you lift her up in your prayers.
