I'll be praying for her, too.
She's probably been coughing something awful with the bronchitis, and she may have pleurisy. It's terribly painful...it hurts to even take a breath...but antibiotics take care of it.

We get by with a little help from our friends

Dear crewsk, I am lighting my Angel candle for your mom. I hope you get some good news about her real soon, I know how hard it is to wait. God Bless you both.

My prayers are with you and your family crewsk. Staying busy is the best thing you can do, and by the way...put the phone down. Carrying it around is not going to make your brother or dad call any faster!! ;>) Play with the kids instead, the exercise will help you and the kids! Love and peace, Dawn

Prayers are up and on the way to you and hour mom. Part of the prayer is for calm.

Hang in there it sounds like intially they have not found anything they are just double checking. Just be glad she is in good hands and they want to get to the bottom of it and want to be sure it's nothing. Prayers sent.

All the best for you and your mother. I had to do a similar thing to my brother when our mother got sick a few years ago. He lives three hours away and had to get someone in to fill in for him before he could come up anyway. It was very stressful for him but he was able to get up here by the time she took a turn for the worse. She was out of hospital a couple of weeks later thankfully. I think he would recommend that you go visit her as soon as you were able to arrange things (but not in a panic, just when you can). It is for your peace of mind. Once you see her, you will relax.

Thanks everyone!! My dad called last night & said they were keeping her overnight so they could do some more tests today. I talked to her & she assured me that she was fine & told me not to worry. We were planning on going up Sunday but we've changed that & are going up tomorrow.

Constance, she went through a round of antibiotics & prednisone then a shot of cortisone for the bronchitis. My brother said she reminded him of someone in labor, she'd have a really sharp chest pain that would last for a while & then it would go away.

Sorry to hear how much pain she was in. I will be praying for her.
