MOM Update


I wanted to give everyone a brief update on my mom. She had a fall last night that required 9 stitches above her left eye. We went to our local hospital which was so full we ended up taking her to my hospital and I was able to do her x-rays and assist with her CT. Her eye is very swollen and will be black and blue. When she walks for some reason she leans to the left and she has had many recent falls on her left knee.


She is in a lot of pain still with her liver and her abdomen is very large and at the last paracentesis there was no fluid to withdraw so her doctors have not made any attempt to do anything different which really surprises me being the "big" University of Michigan.

We need the Lord to give us wisdom because her doctors at U of M are not addressing her pain or the swelling in her abdomen and feet. It seems since her problem is not in the direction they have been going they are not looking anywhere else. My sister will be voicing her concerns to someone higher than her doctors at U of M today and we would like to try Beaumont Hospital because POP is doing quite well at the moment.

It seems that there are always challenges in life, Lisa. I'm glad that you were able to be there with your mom at the hospital. I'm sure it was reassuring for her to have her daughter being involved in her X-rays. I'm sure it was scary for her after the fall and having a daughter who knows what's going on was probably very comforting. I'll keep praying for wisdom for you and the doctors. Glad to hear your dad is stable though. Praise God for that.

I'm sorry about that Lisa. That must have been scary. I will continue to pray for her. I pray the doctors come up with some sort of answer soon. Take care my friend! I hope the rest of your week isn't quite as eventful!

Lisa, I am so sorry your mom fell. I will continue to lift her up in prayer and I will pray for your sister today as she speaks with the doctors.

Ever try the chiropractor? It is not just for your back... it is healing for your whole body! Also there is a new juice called monavie which helps with inflamation... we call it God's juice because it is nothing more than all the fruits that we never get in one bottle and if you eat right you feel right. Just a suggestion... hope she is pain free soon!

Lisa,

I am praying for you as you are helping your parents through these difficult trying times.

You bless me so...to see the heart of a daughter.

Hugs to you!

I pray that God will annoint the hands of all that provide care to your mother, that he will comfort her and heal her if it be His will. I also pray that the Lord will give you peace throughout all this. It's such a blessing to see such a decoted daughter. Remember, God is able!
