Turns out that Mom has pneumonia...


Recommended Posts

Thank you to all of you that provided suggestions when I asked why my Mom could be declining so rapidly, but is NED.

I finally got her to call her doctor and he had her come in right away for x-ray, blood test, etc. She's got cloudy stuff in her lung that was not in her lung x-ray last month. Dr. said that when she had bronchitis about 6-7 weeks ago, that he should have had her take the antibiotics longer than he originally perscribed. Thinks that this is a follow on to the bronchitis.

Again, I appreciate your comments and concern. I've been through enough of this lung cancer treatment with family members, and worry terribly when my Mom takes a bad turn. I tell her she's our "poster child" - she's done so well for so long, considering everything.

Thanks again.
