Weekly update (what a unique title)

This updating once a week on Sundays is for the birds, but it's all I could manage. The first half of the week was pretty dull and I didn't have the fire in the belly needed to create a post. And then my mom got sick again. Yeah, I know a week ago I said she was doing pretty well. That was then.

She has developed a bunch of issues which landed her in the hospital yesterday. The biggest thing seems to be a collapsed lung, which happens to be the lung that has the tumor where her cancer started. The just-about-as-big thing is her blood pressure being too low and her heart rate being too high. The doctors are trying to address the cardiopulmonary issues first, but the pulmonary and oncology specialists will be in on Monday. For now she's more or less comfortable, as much as possible. She's still lucid, communicative, pretty much herself mentally.

I have to admit, I'm a bit concerned. I don't really know how concerned I should be, but this seems like something to be a bit concerned about.

Blimey, sorry to hear your news. I hope the quacks are able to get her back on track soon.

Thanks. She has gotten a little better, but there is a lot going on, unfortunately.

Thanks, Fran. I appreciate the candle, and I'm sure Mom will too when I tell her tomorrow.
