The good news is my mom seems to be much better. Thanks for all the well-wishes and notes/messages of concern. The heart cath revealed no blockages but some spasming in her hear muscle. They kept her overnight and doc cleared her for release today (she's on her way home now). She will follow up with a specialist in Floriday (probably a cardiopulmonologist) and hopefully will be able to strategize ways to prevent these asthma attacks in the future. I guess Virginia is just not a great state for those with both asthma AND allergies. Many of you already know that.
