Oh momma...

My mom hasn't been feeling well since she and my dad returned from California.  Last night she was admitted to the ER and diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure.  Her condition is being monitored by medication right now and a full staff of nurses but we'll know more tomorrow morning after the consult with the cardiovascular surgeon.  As surgery is a likely and recommended outcome, she's scared and nervous, as anyone in her position would be, and I've been trying to buoy her spirits.  If anyone has any tips they'd like to share to cheer up or comfort someone in the hospital, please feel free to share them in the comments below.
