Oh, this is so frustrating and disappointing. My text from Mom this morning said "I just want to cry. Have to be admitted to hosp." She tries so hard to just live her life but these problems keep getting in the way. Have you ever wanted something to be a certain was so badly but no matter how hard you try it just doesn't. Of course you have. We all have but when you're trying to live normal and fight cancer along with all of it's ramifications it's like getting smacked in the face with a huge wave after wave. I feel it and I'm not even the one fighting. The reason why she's being admitted today is because of a continued infections and pain from the kidney stent. It's been replaced several times but something just isn't right. At this point Mom's pain tolerance is extremely high so we know when she's in pain it must be pretty bad. I'm glad her oncologist is on the case. They're looking further into the situation and we'll keep you posted. Right now all we can say it that something isn't right and the stent situation just isn't working. Please keep Mom in your thoughts and prayers. Send lots of sunshine her way! We will keep you posted. She'll be admitted for about 1 week is the estimate at this point. Love & Hugs.
