My mom, a medical update

Mom is going for a bronchoskopy on wednesday.
Today she has to have a covid test, its standard to have one before any procedure now.
She is nervous, she doesnt mind the throat swab but she hates the nose swab.
She’ll be going in to hospital at 8 AM on wednesday morning, and she’ll be in there all day, she is going under anaesthesia for the procedure.
Hopefully she will get results on the day, her consultant is actually doing the procedure himself, so hopefully he’ll come and talk to her once its done.
She said she’s also going to try to talk to him about possibly going on oxygen, as she feels she really has no quality of life now.
She said she’d like the portable oxygen, so she can go out and about without having breathing attacks.
So we’ll see what happens, I am nervous about her results, I hope they arent really bad.
Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers, I’d really appreciate it.

  1. Good luck to your Mom, on both the procedure and the COVID test. I totally understand she hates the nose swab. I don’t exactly hate it, but I definitely don’t like it.

  2. I hope everything goes well for your mom. Getting swabbed definitely isn’t pleasant. It does sound like portable oxygen would make her life better. All the positive thoughts and vibes sent your mom’s way ❤
