Update on Mom – Joanne Nordeen August 22, 2011

This is the email update we sent out today about my Mom

Hello all,

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. 


  1. You guys are definitely in my thoughts.
    Sending Good and Positive Thoughts for a very speedy recovery.
    Take care and take a hug from me

  2. Marcia, sorry about this little set back. I wish her a quick recovery. Will keep the prayers going. Hang in there :)

  3. Will be praying for you all & for a quick healing and recovery. Be sure to take care of yourself too!
