Prayers for My Mom, Please


I haven't been able to think about quiltmaking for a couple of weeks due to running Mom to doctors and for tests. Finally, today I had to take her to the ER and she was admitted to the hospital and had a cat scan and an endoscopy to check her kidneys, lower abdomen, and stomach. We now know that she has no kidney stones or kidney tumors, and her ulcers are not bleeding, but we still don't know why she is in such pain, is losing weight (she is so tiny she has no weight to lose, unlike her daughter) and is having black blood in her stools. She will probably have a colonoscopy tomorrow, but if she needs surgery, the doctor doesn't know if she can survive it. She is so weak she had a fall a few days ago.


Here is a cute photo of her as a girl and a recent one to show that she is still cute. She always wants to dress just so, with jewelry and nail polish and looks like a little doll. She is frail but has a very big and tough heart.

Saying a prayer now for you mom. May God surround her with his love and grace and give the doctors skill and wisdom to find what's wrong with her. I'm praying for you too, Fran.
