Hey all, I haven't been on in a very long time. Well, my mom is back in the hospital again. This time we went to the ER for pain in left knee and right shoulder. I mean excruciating pain beyond belief. She said she would rather have all 3 of us kids again at once!! Anyway, come to find out she was losing blood somewhere and they had to do a transfusion and also found out that there is infection. We found out today that she has septic arthritis in her knee and more than likely in her shoulder. She is having surgery tomorrow on her knee and they are going to clean it out and get rid of the yuck. She is doing pretty good considering. We don't know if she will be able to take any chemo at this point and we will see what happens. Prayers and positive thoughts needed!!!!

Your mom will be in my prayers. I will be saying a prayer for you also. I know how tough it is seeing your mom in pain. I pray the surgery is a complete success and she has a speedy recovery. God bless you. Julie

Moms surgery on her knee went well. But the shoulder wasn't worked on. It does not have septic arthritis. Instead there is a tumor there that is causing all the pain. Don't know much more than that yet. Will probably find out more in the coming days. Thanks for all your support, positive thoughts and prayers.
