And the Hits Keep Coming...

Just got off the phone with my brother, who took our mom to the cardiologist yesterday. She is cleared for her amputation surgery from a cardiac standpoint--but on the CT done last week, there is a worrisome build up of fluid in her right lung. None of that in her left. She has been complaining of increasing shortness of breath. Her cardiologist was so concerned about this that he made the appointment for her to see a lung doctor himself. She goes tomorrow.

Taciturn voiced what my brother and I both were thinking when I described the CT results to him. "I bet she has lung cancer," he said. She's smoked for almost 60 years, so certainly that is possible.

Anyway, my brother will call me tomorrow after the visit to the lung doc. We continue to covet your prayers and good thoughts.

So many prayers... so many prayers. I am praying for your mom of course, but also for you, your brother.

This is so much about the dynamics of family relationship as well as life, death, health and more.

God bless you all.
