My Mom is an Episode of House

Not to freak anyone out, but Mom is in the emergency room again.

They took her the first time early New Year's day and some tests showed she might have a blocked bile duct. (All this two months after her gallbladder surgery was supposed to fix everything). She had been having extreme pain about every other day, with only minimum relief. With the news of another possible solution, Mom scheduled a second surgery Tuesday morning. I picked her up afterwards, and she was still in immense pain. And sick to her stomach. She spent two days sick, in pain and trying to get a hold of her doctor.

Today she finally reached someone and they told her to come in. But when she got in they said there was nothing they could do for her at the clinic, so they needed to go to the ER. Which is where they have been since about noon. Last I heard she was on an IV to get hydrated and they were running blood tests.


I feel like some one is going to suggest Lupus soon.


**Edited to add: I just talked to Dad and she is getting ready for a CT scan, but she has to drink a bunch of stuff and is still sick, so it will take a while.


**Edited 1/9 to add: Mom went home around 9 last night with some more pain medication and without any answers.

I'm so sorry that she is going through all of this. I hope they find the problem soon so it can be fixed! Let me know if you or your family need anything (I have connections in both wards).

Freaking heck, Lena!! I am sorry to hear about all aunt Kathy's problems. How yucky for her- she should sue, lol. I hope they get on the ball and call her with some answers!! This is ridiculous, and no one should have to endure pain like that unnecessarily. Give her some hugs from us!

Thanks for your concern, sweetie. I'm actually starting to feel a little better now. Finally.
