MOM UPDATE

Thank you all for your prayers for my mother during this time. She got home from hospital last night late, she will be doing rehab at home with an in home care nurse. They have now diagnosed her with osteoporosis, diabetes and her artery in her neck is 80% blocked, so they are trying to get her well enough so that she can go back in to the hospital in about 4 weeks or so to have her artery cleaned out. After all of this it is no wonder she was falling and her bones were snapping, I am so happy she has finally (or it seems) found some doctors that have gotten to the bottom of most of her problems.. My mother is a very strong woman and it truly takes a lot to keep her down, she has a great attitude about all of this and i am sure she will do well and soon be back on the dance floor!

Great news! Half the battle is knowing what is wrong and causing all these things. By the sound of her she'll soon be strong enough and back in that hospital having the artery scraped out. Then there'll be no stopping her.
I bet you're relieved to know what is wrong too.
Cheers
Helen

Its good to know that they have found out the problems and it looks like they can do a lot to help - still a worry for you all but hopefully she will be on the mend soon and as you say, dancing again! **Kim**X

Glad to see you are getting to the bottom of this. That's half the battle and worry is finding out just what is wrong. Stay strong. Sounds like you mum is quite the fighter.
