Mom went into the hospital in Rapid City Thursday night with what they thought was pneumonia but turns out her prolapsed micro valve, which she has had forever, developed a tear that needs to be repaired. And instead of pneumonia her lungs were filling up with fluid causing her not be able to breathe easily. So her heart doctor was called in and after the test detecting the test he said she will need surgery which she wanted to have done in Rochester. So her and I took an air ambulance down here and Travis and Dalton drove down.
