Mom update - hospital

Mom was admitted to Methodist Germantown yesterday. On Friday night dad called me and said she was bleeding from somewhere. We all thought it was in her urine. Saturday the pain in her back was bad and she wanted to go to the ER, so dad drove her and I sat with her from 1:00 until 9:00 last night. The blood is not in her urine, so it is coming from somewhere else down there. If you feel the desperate need for more detail, email me. They are going to do some further tests, and they did an MRI and an ultrasound last night. Her cancer doc came to see her while we were there and wants a brain scan due to some vision changes (I think he is looking to see if it has metastasised to her brain). The bleeding is not a good sign and she may also have bleeding internally so they want to probably do a scope for that.

I will keep you posted and you can call or email if you want her room number. They only plan to keep her a couple of days - so she should go home Monday or Tuesday if all goes well.

She does have a bladder infection, and they are treating that with antibiotics but that is all that we know for sure at this time.

Oh, and I'm getting bronchitis. Fun.
