Olga Alexander in Hospital Chiriqui

Recommended Posts

Our good friend Olga Alexander suffered a heart attack Sunday night (May 8) and is in intensive care at Hospital Chiriqui.

After monitoring her for awhile in intensive care, they will make a decision on how to proceed.

I will keep all her friends posted.

Most of you know that I took Olga into Hospital Chiriqui emergency in the wee morning hours on Monday because of severe chest pains. They diagnosed a heart attack and put her into intensive care. Today she saw her own cardiologist (Dr. Anguizola) who was more optimistic than was Dr. Adames. They moved her into a regular hospital room this afternoon and she can have visitors. We don't yet know when she will be released to go home.

Olga is in Room 12 at Chiriqui Hospital. She continues to have bad pains under her left breast but this is a different place than the original severe pain. She and Dr. Anguizola are beginning to think it may not have been a heart attack but some kind of severe gastro-intestinal problem. They are doing a CAT scan this afternoon.

If anybody is going to visit later today (Thursday) or tomorrow, please stop by my house for a bag of her personal items she needed from her apartment.

Olga is due to be released on Monday. She is now getting intravenous antibiotics for a lung infection. The diagnosis of what is wrong with her has been all over the map. At first it was presumed she had a heart attack. Then there was some suspicion of complications from a recent endoscopy. Now a lung infection. In any case, she is currently pain free and really looking forward to getting home.

Olga expects to be released today. Keith Cline will pick her up and bring her home. We need to start the "soup brigade". She was a picky eater in the hospital and needs to get some good nourishment.
