This is the email update we sent out today about my Mom
Just wanted to inform you that my mom, Joanne Nordeen, was put into
the hospital this past Saturday with multiple blood clots in her
lungs. She also has a contagious bacterial infection called C dif.
She is now on blood thinners and also antibiotics for the infection.
She is expected to be in the hospital for about a week, but hopefully
less. She was in a "step down" intensive care but has moved today to a
regular room as they have her stabilized.
Today the doctors expressed concerned as it is quite risky to put a
patient who just had brain surgery on blood thinners, nevertheless it
is necessary as otherwise she will have more clots in other places.
Mark is with her at the hospital and I will be going there tomorrow.
Please continue to keep Mom in your thoughts and prayers.
Cards can be sent to her home at: Joanne Nordeen, 1008 Caswell St,.
Fort Atkinson, WI 53538
She is in the Fort Atkinson Hospital.
