Dear Sinfest:

First off, I would like to thank the many of you that gave me the warm thoughts, wishes, and hugs. For keeping my mom in your prayers, and for every thoughtful thing said.

I am heading out to the hospital in about a half an hour to go see my mom. I'm waiting for her to come back from testing. I just got off the phone with her and after finding out this news, I think I won't be in any cheery mood to play on the boards for awhile.

My mom said that they won't allow her to have the surgery. Her pulmonary doctor told her, her lungs can't handle it. I'm not sure what alternative treatments they do for broken vertebrae when they don't fix it surgically.

However, that being said -- the pulmonary doctor told my mom that she is in the last stages of COPD (bad lungs she has asthma and emphesemia), and that the steroids they have her on are killing her. She has the choice of letting the steroids kill her, or let COPD take it's course, and kill her.

I'm hoping my mom made it sound worse because she's depressed. But I'm really devastated. And I think I just need some time and space to deal with all this.

I will be on MSN and IRC intermittenly, if anyone needs to get a hold of me.

Again, thanks for the kind things you've said and done guys.

Love,
Jen

Crying or Very sad I'm so sorry to hear about your mother. Here's hoping it's not as serious as she has said. *HUGHUGHUG* Take as much time as you need, but know that we're thinking about you and are here if you need us.

There are no words, or advice I can give, but you will come out the other side of this ... *hugs*
