I do not know how much more I can take... *Sob*

This morning, we get informed that my mother has COPD on top of her other issues and that the carotid artery in her neck is showing signs of getting worse.

Now, I get a call to make an appointment to get a cat-scan of my lungs because in January, they found a nodule in my lungs and want to see if it got any larger. *Worry*

I'm going to have some icecream and call it a day. *Cry*
Ice cream is a good choice, my friend. Eat some and chill. Pun intended. 😃
You can take more. You can handle more than this old lady, by the way, I'm now wearing a cast on my right foot. I've had troubles galore and if I can do it, so can you. You are strong and capable and God will help you through this. Contact my church and they can help too.
love, LinnAnn
I had two asthma attacks today. Both mild to moderate but still scary especially since my sister and I were an hour drive away from home. We were having the car fixed when the man who sold us the car offer my sister a trade in deal. She was discussing it when the asthma attack hit. After if had subsided, I had to call off work because I was afraid I would end up in the ER if I went in.

I am definitely going to have to demand to be taken off cook or find another job.
Dont you have an emergency inhaler? I carry mine everywhere I go. Everywhere. I am so sorry, I totally understand.
Good news and bad news…

My little brother does NOT have cancer. However, he has severe pneumonia, chronic COPD and severe asthma. He is looking into early retirement. He is 49 years old. As for me, I had an asthma attack. Still completely out of breath. Called off work as a precaution. Do not want to be in the ER again if I can avoid it.
Sending prayers
your brothers income will be so low. Can he find a desk job?
That's so wonderful that he doesn't have cancer! The other diagnosis's aren't great, but pneumonia can be resolved, hopefully, the COPD and asthma can be well managed with the right medications. Not ideal, but so much better than it could have been.

I continue to hold you and your family in my heart and prayers. Smart move on being cautious! *Heart*
*Worry* *Headbang* Just got more bad news from my little brother. *Headbang* *Worry*

Not only does he have severe pneumonia but he also has COPD and a large lump in his lung (he did not specify the size) and tests are being run to see if it is cancerous.

I apologize for sending one update after another but I'm a nervous wreck right now.
I’m praying for you, Eric.
I will be praying for him.
I am so very sorry! This is super nerve-wracking right now, I'm sure, and that's putting it mildly. My prayers for him, you, your mom, and your entire family continue to go up.

Please remember, you have my phone number. If you need to talk, vent, pray together, whatever I am able to do, I'm here for you. *Heart*
When it rains, it pours. *Sob*

Now my little brother is in the hospital for a 101.7 temperature and coughing up blood. Fortunately, he does not have Covid but they are testing him for TB. We will not know what is wrong with him until at least Monday. *Worry* *Sob*
You and your family are in my prayers. Sending warm thoughts.
Oh sweetheart. I am so sorry. I will continue to pray for all of you.
My brother has severe pneumonia. It's bad but treatable. Just like me, he braves the cold thinking he can take it but we are not getting any younger.
Did I know you had a brother?
I'll add him to my positive hopes, wishes, and prayers! I hope it is quickly resolved and he comes out of it as good as new! He must have really been pushing through it for quite some time for it to result in him coughing up blood.
My mother was released from the hospital with orders to take two different types of blood thinners to fight the blood clot. Hopefully, this time these blood thinners do not cause her to hemorrhage like the last time she was put on them. *Worry*

We were told there was nothing more they could do at the ER and that they had talked to our family doctor at length. Al we can do at this point is pray for the best.
Clots are a very hairy thing. Praying.
no one told me Not to take Ibuprofen with my shots. Fortunately no hemorrhage
Prayers headed her way! 🙏❤🙏
My mother is back in the hospital. Her left leg swelled badly; they found a major blood clot. They are admitting her. Will keep you posted.
I got some rather bad news from my doctor today. He confirmed that I have severe asthma. At first, I was told it was significant asthma but the ineffectiveness of the medication I was first put on proved it to be severe.

I have been strongly urged by my doctor to avoid irritants such as flour dust; i can no longer be a cook at KFC. *Sad* I will have to become a cashier or find another occupation. I am searching for another job.
