We went down to see Mom today. She is feeling some better. We found out that the clogged part of her heart Can Not be operated on. It is from the (shoddy) medical care she received in 1999 during a Quad By-Pass. She had a automobile car wreck and had 2 heart attacks while being treated for the wreck. They gave her a 12% chance of Survival. THEY WERE WRONG!
Now they say that they are willing to use experimental drugs to try to prolong her life for a short time. I say BS.
It seems to me that the Prayers and good thoughts are helping. Her mood was much better and her sense of humor has returned. She said to give everyone that prayed (sent warm thoughts) a big Thank You! And ask that you continue. She too believes that miracles happen.
We are tired and the bed is calling my name. So I'll post more tomorrow. Good Night.

I'm very thankful your mother is improving. May she continue to do so.
Wishing you enough.

Hi Kenneth, I've been thinking and worrying about your mom. Thanks for taking the time to update us. I just went through a long illness with my Dad, so be sure you all take care of yourselves too and get plenty of rest. Give your mom a hug and kiss for us and we'll keep the prayers coming.

Glad to hear your mother's condition is improving Kenneth. I hope it continues. And she is totally welcome to the good thoughts.

I add my prayers. The power of prayer is amazing, isn't it?

Mom will be sent home Monday. The doctor said he can't operate so she would be just as well at home. I don't think that as she lives alone down in Georgia. It's a 4 hour drive for us to visit her. She refuses to come here and stay awhile. And people wonder where I get my stubbornness. :o)
