updated request

Please pray for my mom. She's in the hospital right now in ICU because of something with her heart. My dad said it didn't seem serious, but still...
She is talking to the doctor right now, so I will call her again in a while and get more information.
She's two hours away so I need wisdom about whether or not to go down there, too.
Thank you .

*edited for an update -
It is atrial fib, which she has had before. The main problem with this arrhythmia isn't heart attack or anything, it's blood clots and the risk of stroke. So they are giving her blood thinner and trying to get the heart back into a regular rhythm. They may have to cardiovert, which is when they use the shocky machine, if the drug they are giving her doesn't regulate the rhythm.
Thank you all for your prayers.

  5. I will keep her and your your family in my thoughts...I hope she pulls out of atrial fib so they don't need to cardovert.
