amyrig35 Posted August 28, 2006 Share Posted August 28, 2006 I haven't posted since the spring - since my MIL was "unoficially" diagnosed. She was hospitalized for heart issues and they found spots on her lungs almost as a side issue to the heart problems. They ran the chest x-rays and CT scans but said she wasn't strong enough for much else. She didn't want to know and didn't want to talk about it. Well a few weeks later she was hospitalized again because her face swelled to the point where she was having trouble swallowing and breathing. Still didn't want to talk about it but the doctor mentioned that it could be from the cancer... she glared at him and no more was said. So that's it. Her face continues swell and then subside (she takes a Benedryl and prays). She is exhausted and forces herself out of bed most days (some days she stays in). No appitite - food tastes funny. She is loosing weight and misses smoking (she did quit when she was in the hospital the first time). She blacked out briefly a few weeks ago and fell to the floor but luckally didn't break anything. She said it was the blood pressure medication. I guess that's it. She doesn't want to know so we can't ask. She is waiting to get better and we are waiting for... I don't know. Something. I guess I'm just venting. My husband is upset but he doesn't like to talk about it either - so here I am. Thank you for listening. -amy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
