Prayers please... - 08/28/07 05:16 PM

i can't go into much detail, mainly because i don't know any, but my mom is in the hospital and i would love to have some prayers sent this way please. what i do know is that her blood count is really low, she has had 2 transfusions (so far) and they are bandying about the C word. (no, not the swear one, the other one). hopefully we will know more by the end of the day.

thanks.

Re: Prayers please... - 08/29/07 11:39 PM

thank you for asking, rizzo. i'm actually on the phone with mom now.

she's home, she's tired, she's weak, she still has to go to the hemotologist (blood doctor) on friday but she sounds good. she fired 2 doctors

so things are looking up! hooray!!

Re: Prayers please... - 08/29/07 11:52 PM

Posted By: corkygirl

Re: Prayers please... - 08/30/07 12:57 AM

Mag that's great. I'm sure she feels better being home!! And good for her for firing 2 doctors, just cause they still owe a lot to some medical school doesn't mean they are really any good and if we don't watch out for our selves - - - well anyway, good for her!!!

Re: Prayers please... - 08/30/07 12:51 PM

Thanks for asking Duchess. nothing new since last night - she's home, she's tired, full of pi$$ and vinegar as they say. she's found a new primary doc (since she fired her other one) and will go see the blood doc tomorrow. she said they told her it was some sort of blood disease, but not cancer. i have to research it when i find out the name.

I'll pray. This sounds like an episode of hemolitic anemia that my daughter had.

Scary stuff. I pray that the doctors get it all figured out.

Re: Prayers please... - 09/01/07 01:30 AM

She's back in the hospital. it is cancer. she's having her spleen removed. that will help them determine what kind of cancer and what the best treatment is. the surgery will also tell them if it has spread and to where.

she's very calm about it. i'm freaking.

Think positive - it's good to have 'treatment options'. There are a lot of cancer survivors in this world, and I'm praying for your mom to become one.

getting better, thanks. she may be able to come home tomorrow. (just in time for them to move into a new house!! ) her color is better than it has been in a year - she's not a pale grey anymore. hopefully we will get some treatment option information today.

Posted By: Sandy Beech

Re: Prayers please... - 09/06/07 12:16 PM

Well, whoever said good thoughts, best wishes and prayers don't work IS CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We got amazing news yesterday from the oncologist. Mum does have lymphoma, but it is low grade and slow growing. removing the spleen got most of it, although there is some effect to her marrow. however, it is a chronic condition that she will have forever. there is not rush to treat it until the symptoms come back and then we can be very aggressive with it. she will get tested again in 2 months. and she should be home today or tomorrow!!!!!!!!

we are all thrilled. and i would like to thank everyone who offered their thoughts and prayers for Mum and our family for the past few weeks. it has meant more than you know and, i believe, aided in this positive outcome.

THANK YOU!!!!!

Mag - how are things going at home?
Posted By: Sandy Beech

Re: Prayers please... - 09/11/07 01:52 PM

tihngs are progressing positively. she gets tired very easily if we all visit too frequently. but she and dad are back to tormenting each other - so that's a positive sign that things are getting back to normal.

she and dad are closing on their new little house today, so we will be moving them since she obviously can't.

but your thoughts and prayers are helping and appreciated. thanks!!!
