she argues with me over anything i suggest about a second opinion dr. she rants and raves about lawsuits.

she says she wanted everyone to see how her mom was. don't have a clue why. maybe the drama of it. i told her i could not visit. didn't want to see my friend like that. she made sure i did. i opened the e-mail , it had no title so did not know what it was about. i am so upset and depressed today.
just fixed a mistake

Can you contact a patient advocate? Because it's not about her daughter.
thanks for your concern. a patient advocate would not talk to me. i just get the info from daughter and ask her questions. that is all i can do.

Babe - I'd sit quietly, and hold you hand right now if I could... I feel for you, and send what positive thoughts I can.

I hope she recovers from her illness. I will include her in my personal prayers too, and you as well.

goodweed, i am so sad to say but she will never be well. to much damage to the lungs from aspirating three times. when the took the trac. out she coded. now she is back on ventilator. they are saying they will hold her room seven days. she is in icu now. after seven days they would send to another town that is a lengthly drive away.her daughter says she would only be able to go once a week. does not feel she can stay on top of things that way. i frankly think they are trying to kill her or at least hurry up death. that to me was why they took trac. out, now say they can't get in back in. makes me crazy . thanks for your kind words

just got off the phone. some good news, my friend Wallie is now able to swallow. she had applesauce, first food in six months. daughter said she is more lucid. they took her off so many drugs and she is more alert. not a miracle but it is positive progress.

Yes, it IS good news, Babe. The miracle is that they finally took her off some of those meds she probably didn't need in the first place.

Prayers for both of you continue.
