Update

Mom is doing better. She has more color to her now and is alert. She didn't have a heart attack, but something did happen, so they're giving her a nuclear stress test tomorrow, drug-induced, to see whether the heart thing was cause or effect (I'd lean toward the latter). Today is for getting the electrolytes back into balance.

Pat, it turns out, has been provisionally diagnosed with corneal dystrophy, also called Fuch's endothelial dystrophy. The endothelial cells at the back of the cornea deteriorate, causing the cornea as a whole to swell and blister. No known cure other than corneal transplant, though there are some treatments.

Oh, by the way: filkferengi, I got the Beethoven CDs. Thanks!
