UNWELCOMED NEWS

Well I have been a bit of a hermit on the forum lately....

Friday my mother called and said she was told she needed to go to hospital for a blood transfusion (totally out of the blue) altho she said she had been feeling weak and tired lately. Well after 5 days in hospital she has been diagnosed with Leukemia. She has had a bone marrow biopsy and we are holding are fingers and toes crossed that it comes back as chronic rather than acute....acute is bad - real bad...

My boys have been a bit confused as I just has not been around....spending most of my time at hospital. I brought her home Monday nite and now we just wait.

Thx for any prayers!!


SHE LOVES MY BOYS!!

Catherine, I'm sorry to read about the news you have so far and I'm hopeful for the chronic diagnosis for your mom.

Does your mother live close? Is she going to stay with you for a while (or was that just for the night)? If you need any help with the boys, let me know, but I suspect they will be great cheer-er-uppers for both of you right now. Feel free to call on me if I can help you out at all.

What horrible news! I hope that the tests come back showing that it is chronic rather than acute. Your mom is stunning in that picture of her and ollie. We will all keep you in our thoughts as you wait for the results and what is to come.
