Here is a photo of my beautiful mom from this past summer at camping… relaxing and fiddling with her camera. Just in case you forgot how beautiful she is.
Mom started week three of an intensive five-week radiation treatment, and my dad sent the following email to the family yesterday evening:
Mom woke up this morning with a swollen arm, the one with the PIC line in it. She also had pain around the area of her feeding tube.
We went in at our appointed time for radiation and after that asked to see a nurse who in turn called a doctor who ordered yet another bloodtest. It showed that her calcium was very low while her potassium which was low two days ago was normal again
The long and the short of it is that we were brought to emergency for the doctors up there to have a look at things. We saw a doctor who declared that Mom had to be admitted so they can assess the situation and deal with it
I have no idea how long this will take and when she will be discharged again. This is a miserable setback. We had really been looking forward to the weekend: four days of no hospital
We will see what happens. Keep us in your prayers, please.
And so, dear readers, I’m seeking your prayers again for my parents as they walk this road. My family is so blessed to have each of you as part of the communion of saints, bring your pleas and petitions before the throne of grace.
