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.
