We are blessed

Thank you dear lord for hearing and answering our prayers!
Bless all of my dear sweet friends today and every day!
{mum on her birthday in september
holding her new great grandaughter Madison}


Warm hugz for everyone!
You girls have no idea how grateful I am to have you all as friends!
Sincerely,
I thank you with all my heart
for all the prayers and well wishes for my mum!

Mum is a very loving, kind, gentle soul, she has always been healthy and taken very good care of herself and others, she walked faithfully until she developed arthritis in her knee, she always got plenty of exercise, watches what she eats and never smoke or drank.

On saturday morning mum was drinking her morning coffee and her vision blurred,
she felt sick to her stomach so her friend helped her to the recliner to relax!

A few seconds later she lost all control of her body functions and her arm went numb.

They got an ambulance and got her to the hospital!
By 1pm she was doing great!
I talked to her on the phone!
{ I live 3 hours away from my mum}

You would have never known she was so bad earlier!

At first they thought it was the flu because she was dehydrated!

Then they thought it was food poisoning.
On sunday morning she got up to use the restroom and blacked out!

I talked to the doctor on the phone and she was not sure if mum had a stroke or heart attack!
I knew it was time to rush down to be with her!

When we arrived she was on oxygen and scared to death!

She was not sure what had happened!

I spent 2 days with her in the hospital meeting all the doctors and specialists and asking every question imaginable.
{I am sure they were glad to see me go!}
:-)
After numerous tests, scans, ultra sounds, and a stress test.
Here are the results....
she has a hiatal hernia, diabetes, and her kidneys are working at 24%.

Her heart, liver and lungs are great for her age!
She went home on wedensday and feels great today!
She said it feels so good to be home!
We all know that feeling don't we.

She didn't want me to stay with her because her friend and my niece are staying with her.
{Mum is a stubborn pollock and doesn't like to inconvience anyone}
So I came home but left strict instructions that I get a phone call if any little thing does not feel right.
She sees the kidney specialist on monday and her family doctor on wednesday!
I hope and pray that we can get her kidneys working better
or at the least keep them where they are right now.


All prayers would be greatly appreciated my dear sweet friends.
*I luv you all so much*

Now I am off to catch up on things around here
and try to de-stress,
if I can.


Smiles and Hugz, Dolly

Dolly, so sorry. I'm glad mum is doing better. Please relax and destress and that so many of us bloggers care. I have been wondering how your flea market went this summer. I imagine it was a lot of work, but did you have any time to enjoy the people involved? Take Care, Ele

Hi Dolly,
I'm praying for your mum too. I have a mother who does not enjoy good health either so I know how you feel. You're in my prayers.

Blessings,
Sandi

My mother has had similar episodes over the last 4 years. It's been pretty scary. I'm so glad to hear she is home and doing well. My prayers are with her and you.

I'm so glad that they got to the bottom of what's ailing your Mom. She sounds like a woman who will fight to get on with her life and with that kind of spirit she'll be FINE!
