The day after the uneventful surgery (where the word 'uneventful' is a positive one), my mother had severe chest pain. After an ECG which showed significant ischaemic changes, she was shifted to the ICCU, and was hooked up on a cardiac monitor. She also received two units of blood, and is continuously on oxygen and various drips. The doctors are now waiting for the surgical incision to heal sufficiently before doing an angiography/angioplasty. She remains in her private ICCU room till then, where she is permitted an attendant, given her age and extreme frailty. I spend most of the day there, and a private nurse comes in at night. My sister looks after my household and our father, who is being very stoic about the whole business, and yet can break my heart with a slight downturn of his mouth. My eldest daughter came in yesterday, and will spend time at the hospital so I can deal with some other necessary stuff and take an occasional break. The SRE has curtailed his travelling for a while and is a great source of strength. The curly haired son was having exams, but came over to the hospital whenever he could to cheer up his grandmother. My sister-in-law and nephew will be here next week from England, as will the older son from New York. My uncles, aunts and various cousins call frequently. I am truly thankful for my family.
I am also thankful for my wonderful blogworld family.
Thank you for all your good wishes. Your prayers are still needed.

Hows your mum now Dipali?
I'm really sorry I got her so late, Dipali. Have not been reading any of the blogs I follow for almost a month now, and missed both your posts.
I am glad your mother's original surgery was uneventful, and all my best wishes are with you now.
Hope you manage to get your mother back home really soon.
How's your mom Dips? Is she better?
