What a relief!

My mom was discharged this morning. She's still pretty sick but the crisis is over and now she just needs to recuperate and rest. Thanks so much to everyone who prayed and left comments. Your prayers, support and caring words mean so much to me.

I am frantically trying to catch up at work after being off yesterday but plan to return to my normal blogging routine in the next 24 hours or so!

Now I'm just going to say this in order to get it off my chest....I wish that young doctors would realize that scolding and lecturing people who are more than twice their age, for decisions and addictions that have been going on for over 50 years, only serves to cause those elderly patients to avoid seeking medical treatment when they really need it. {{{sigh}}}

Oh Thank God. I prayed that you would get clear answers today..and this is GREAT news. I am so happy she is well enough to come home. I know it will be easier on you to know she is atleast out of the hopsital.

This has been a rough few weeks with your Dad and Mom. I know this has been stressful.

Hugs and lot's of love..

Hang in there, Vickie!

And yeah, some of those young doctors need a good spanking ;)

YOU can tell that dr not to belittle her... or just find another dr. I'm glad she's feeling better.

Thank you all so much for your prayers and kind words!

My sister was with my mom when this young doctor was patronizing and rude to her...and she told him, in no uncertain terms, to leave her be. But of course the harsh words had already been spoken.

I just hopscotched on to your blog. Having worked in medical I understand your Doctor "concern."
I hope your Mom is able to have a good Mother's Day. ~Mary
