more bad news

Once again this week, I have NO Alphabe-Thursday or Pagan Blog Prompt Thursday. Apologies.

My Mom is still in the hospital. She has some fluid retention around the heart, which is being treated with meds because her kidneys aren't at 100%. Her heart cath. showed some blockages in her old bypass grafts (she had 5 in 2001) and a bit of a leaky valve, both of which they are treating with meds. (meds are one of the things she fights the doctors tooth and nail on--so we'll see how this goes) I do not have further info at this point whether they are running any other tests, before sending her to the rehab unit to strengthen her before sending her home.


Ron came home on Tuesday evening saying he couldn't see out of his left eye. (he has diabetic retinopathy)
we went to the retinologist yesterday...they can not see behind his eye, either manually or with the special camera. the retinologist thinks it is a large bleeder, and once some of the blood clears he'll be able to see better. so we go back tomorrow to see what's what, and he may have to have a laser treatment (ouch)

I am waiting for the 3rd thing to happen...though our son moved out (again) so that might be it.

I am off to see the last (hopefully) "opposition's doctor" for my WC case, today.  Please keep a good thought that her assessment is at least in the ball park of our doctors assessment.

thanks and many blessings!

I hope your son moving out again was the third ting, and also that your Mom recovers, and the sight in Ron's eye can be saved/restored! I'm also keeping my fingers crossed for your appointment!

You and your family are just going through the ringer, I'm so sorry Susan. Don't wait for the "third" event, just live in the moment and see if there are any blessings and miracles coming your way, even though it's so scary. Sending everyone lots of prayers.
