Mom got to go home from the hospital last night.
They did an x-ray of her lungs, and it showed pleurisy.
She is in a lot of pain with it, but the doctor prescribed pain patches, and strong painkillers.
They tested her for a blood clot in her lung, as they thought that might be what she had.
They also checked to make sure her lung hadn’t collapsed again.
The doctor told her that it will take a couple of weeks for the pleurisy to completely go.
In the mean time she is to go to her GP if the pain gets worse, or else go back to the emergency room.
She said this morning her pain was a six out of 10.
It’s a relief to know that she didn’t have a collapsed lung or a blood clot.
At least pleurisy is treatable.
Thanks for all of the prayers, positive vibes and good thoughts for my mom. I truly did appreciate all of them.
I spent most of yesterday worried sick about her.
I fell into bed early last night and I slept all night.
I was just so exhausted.
I will be going to mom and dad’s this weekend, and spending the weekend there.
I’m looking forward to it.
