Susan, I will be saying a chapter 20 of psalms for your mom. It is a traditional chapter that we say for somebody who is not well or needs help from above.

You are what you eat.

Thanks to everyone. It is very good Kadesma to know I am not alone and have caring friends here. I am trying my best to take care of me. I am an exhausted wreck. One of my mom's best friends is in the hospital too and it does not look good for her. I love Florence, too.

Yes, I am frightened because I don't know what is best. All I can do is try to accept whatever comes my way and pray that I do not have to make any difficult choices. I have her durable power of heathcare attorney.

She is comfortable and she only has pain when she coughs. They finally switched her to nasal canula that fit better. I am hoping that we caught it early enough and that she can bounce. If she bounces I think she should be able to stay where she is. The breathing treatments make a big difference and she is on iv antibiotics.

Thoughts and prayers sent your way. Pneumonia is really frightening.

Thoughts and prayers are going your way Susan. Know you're not alone. I know how hard it is to have a loved one so ill. Stay strong.
