emoticon Linda & Bobbie, for you best wishes for my Mom.
She is doing amazingly well for a 91 year old woman. She is
eating Activia, and she is on a pill for ulcers, 4 X daily.

I called her today several times to check on her. She told me
that she was feeling fine. She cleaned out her closet, pantry
and her refrigerator! I fussed at her but she told me that she
loves to work and that she wanted to do it. So, what can I do?
The cleaning lady cleaned her whole house yesterday.

I thank God that she is doing okay right now. We still are
waiting for the biopsy to come back. She doesn't seem very
concerned about it. But I am a bit concerned. The pictures
of her huge ulcer looked terrible.

"I lift up my eyes to the hills-where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of Heaven and Earth."
Psalm 121: 1-2 (NIV)

Mom is still doing okay. She had a little pain today, but not serious.
I made a large meal last evening, and took her a large plate. She
eats so little, that she can eat from it two days.

Mom is still so strong. She felt so much better today, that she
straightened up her closet and did some more cleaning. The
cleaning woman comes tomorrow to clean her house
thoroughly. I've a good mind to call & tell her we don't need
her. Though Mom is 90, she loves working. Praise the
Lord, although the ulcer is far from healing and I think
that she may have to get the hiatal hernia repaired, at
least she is feeling well again.

Thanks to all of you for your prayers. They sure have worked!
Praise God and His Son Jesus, for many blessings!

Mom, was feeling better today. She was able to eat some and
that really made me happy.

Mom had her procedures done in the hospital, but was not admitted.
Her abdomen pain is not present today.

Thank you so much for prayers for my dear Mom. She really needs them.
I won't take the time to describe my extremely busy day with Mom. But
her primary doctor told us, that her blood work, chest xray & heart echo,
came back good. However, she did not get tested for her tummy. Why, I
do not know! She was sent for infusion & referred to a surgeon, to be
scoped, down her throat. I took her to see the surgeon, he questioned
us, then had his nurse to call the hospital to schedule the procedure to
be done today. When I went to his office, it was full of patients. But he
felt my mom was really a sick woman and took care of her first! He is
the one, who did my mastectomy in Nov. 2010.

I took her to infusion at the hospital and the surgeon called for them to
bring her down to be scoped. He came to me after he was finished and
told me that she had a huge ulcer and a large hiatal hernia. He presented
me with colored photos showing both. Wow, it looked horrible to me! He
is sending them off to be biopsied before treating her, to make sure it is
not cancer. I feel the Lord was with us all day. Everything happened
that needed to happen. We were both exhausted when the day ended.
She did eat a plain cheeseburger & a milkshake. This is the first food
that she has eaten in way over a week. In her IV, they gave her lots of
protonics and the nurse told me that should help a lot. Also, she was
treated for dehydration.

Dee, so sorry about the bad news of spots on your mom's pancreas. I
surely hope that it is nothing to worry about. I do hope that the defib
or pacemaker and the pancreas problems can both be treated at the
other hospital. May God bless you, your dad, Mom and the rest of the
family, as you go through these trying times.

I talked to Dee yesterday afternoon..I was not totally awake..so I am not too clear on all the details....but...
I do know they were planning on transferring her Mom to a Trauma Center for the heart operation...but now after just speaking to Dee and getting an update:

Her Mom was having breathing problems yesterday . They did a CAT Scan and it showed up spots on her pancreas.So they redid another CAT scan this morning and Dee is waiting for the results. Please keep them in your prayers.

Also please remember to keep Barb, Braveone in your prayers. She was taking her Mom back to the doctors again today 5/13.. Her Mom has not been doing well. She has not been eating and has been experiencing a lot of abdomen pain.

I know there are so many of you that are in need of prayers. Just know I am praying for everyone. God loves us all. Never think you are walking this path alone. You are strong, and you have a stronger support system behind you.
We are always here for each other but mainly always remember: Let's all pray and ask guidance from our Lord!

Isaiah 48:17

17 This is what the LORD saysó your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: "I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.
