Need board magic, please

Mom is going into the hospital, Monday. She's having trouble getting food down and they're going to endoscope her, to rule out a blockage. Hopefully, it is just esophageal spasms - THAT is treatable with medication.

The main problem is the anesthesia. Last year, when she had her gallbladder out, she developed pneumonia and blood clots in her lungs. She is STILL on anticoagulants, from that.

Between the diabetes, heart problems and stroke complications, Mom is NOT a good surgery risk.

Thanks, Sherral, Ted and everyone else. Her name is Mary and she just turned 67, on Monday. I know that she and my dad are worried. I am, too but I make jokes and try to keep her from breaking down.

When she had her gallbladder out, my dad and I were with her, in pre-op and he kept tickling her feet because it drives her crazy and makes her laugh.

Mom came through, just fine. I just got off of the phone with her.

The problem is esophageal spasms and they've prescribe something to control that. That's a whole lot better than a malfunctioning valve or a stricture. She sounded perky on the phone. I'm going to stop by, after work, one day this week. I'm altering some pants for my nieces and need to deliver them.

I can show off my new car, too!

Thanks to everyone for their concern. The old broad's almost as tough as I am!

I don't know what the medication is but, I'll check when I'm up there. My dad wasn't home, when I called and Mom is hard-pressed to remember MY name, sometimes.

Since the stroke, everybody is "Mike" (one of my brothers) and she calls my dad "Daddy". When she refers to "Mike" or "Michael", we have to figure out if she'd talking about me, my brothers, the grandkids, Bill or one of the dogs. Makes for some interesting conversations, sometimes.

Aw, Cindy, I'm so glad it wasn't something more serious!!!! I'm REALLY glad it's treatable with medication and won't apparently require surgery. *Phew*

Thanks for the update.

How's your mom? I wouldn't worry about her confusing names - my grandmother used to do that all the time (siblings, children, grandchildren, pets), and now my mom's (71) doing it. I'm 46 and a teacher, and I do over and over.
