My Mother

Hello, everyone.

Everyone reading this knows that my mother has been ill.  She has been in and out of the hospital, and this last time they had to put her on a respirator to help her breathe.  She was originally diagnosed with pneumonia, but it's now congestive heart failure and they removed two liters of fluid from her chest this past weekend.  They removed her from the respirator for about a day, then the fluid started building up again. 

Today, I received a call saying that her kidneys were starting to become affected.  They've started her on other medications, but it's really bad.  I was basically told to be prepared for bad news. 

I've called my sister and let her know, and she's flying in tomorrow.  Thanks to all of you for your good wishes, thoughts, and hugs.  All we can do now is wait and hope.
