  • My Mother-please say a Prayer

    My Mom, Katy has been sick for the last few days, complaining of mainly of leg pain. My father took her to the doctors today and after doing an MRI discovered a blood clot in her leg. They are going to admit her to the hospital today and keep her there till Thursday morning. (they think they caught it in time). She is in Houston, and i am here in Austin. So you can just imagine what I am thinking of!. My sister called me and told me what was going on and that she would call back, but instead i called the hospital and talked to my dad. They didn't think that I needed to be down there but to be on stand by.

      Diagnosed: 2011 - have had symptoms for over 20 years. Diagnoses so far: Overactive Bladder, then IC, and now Myofacial Pelvic Pain Syndrome.

      Medicines: For IC am doing PT, and will be taking Gabapentin, Ativan, Tramadol and Ambien. Ice packs and drinking vanilla shakes help. Foods that cause a flare, tomatoes, yogurt, coffee, soda, all sports drinks, and most teas. Take Verapamil, Naproxen (as needed), Omeprazole, Frova (as needed) and receive Botox shots(every three months) for migraines. For allergies I use Claritin and Flonase. (Feel free to ask me any questions about meds.)

      Other conditions: Migraines, allergies, mild IBS.

        Saying a prayer for your mother.
        Elinor

        I would have lost heart, unless I had believed
        That I would see the goodness of the Lord
        In the land of the living.
        Wait on the Lord;
        Be of good courage,
        And He shall strengthen your heart;
        Wait, I say, on the Lord!
        ***Psalm 27:13-14***

          It's good that she is getting medical attention. She may need to be in the hospital for a few days.

          Sending gentle hugs,
          Donna
          Stay safe

              my mother-prayers

              Mary,

              My mother also has a clot in her leg so I know it can be very worrying. What I was told was that my mom's clot is in a superficial vein and would most likely stay put or dissolve. She is going to be rechecked in two weeks.

              My mother is far from where I am too, so I understand how hard it is,but it sounds like your mom is being well taken care of.

              I hope all turns out well.

              Laurie

                I will say a prayer for your mom and you. I know how hard it is being away from your mother when she is sick. I was 3,000 miles away when my mom had her stroke and it was emotionally very difficult. Sounds like they caught it in time though so hopefully everything will turn out well.

                          Thanks- my Mom is doing much better been at home for about a week now. They still don't know what caused the clots but said it will take some time to dissolve. she will be on Coumadin for at least a year or even maybe forever.
