Mom got good news!

Hi

I have great news! Mom’s results are back from the lab!

There is no cancer, yay! I’m so relieved!

Her consultant said he actually thought that she may have lung cancer, because the pockets in her lungs keep filling up with gunk.

So luckily she doesn’t!

She does still have the fungal infection in her lung though, and her consultant is putting her on an antibiotic long term to prevent infections in the future, he’s also going to change the intravenous antibiotics that she’s on so that they can ttreat the infection.

He’s also increasing her inhalers, giving her stronger ones with more steroids in them.

He said he’ll keep her for another week at least.

Her lung is still a little collapsed, the bottom of her lobe is collapsed. They may have to put a permanent drain in, if this keeps happening.

Not sure yet but her doctor said they’ll wait and see if it heals up some before doing any more surgery.

You have no idea how relieved I am that there wasn’t cancer. I was worried sick all weekend, but I said nothing to no one. I kept my worries to myself. Obviously mom was also worried, at least she said so to me this morning after she got her results back.

She did have to see a doctor last night at around midnight, because she had pain in her lung, but the doctor examined her and she said it wasn’t anything sinister, just pain from the infection, she wanted to give her oxicoden but mom refused it because it makes her vomit, and hallucinate.

She got two neurophin for the pain instead.

They have codine in them!

Anyway that is the update from here, keep praying for her guys! I do appreciate all of the ongoing prayers!
