Mom Update

My mom had a discussion with her surgeon at Baylor Hospital; unfortunately it didn't go as we had hoped for....

My moms purpose for wanting to go to Dallas was so that when then time comes that she is in a wheelchair she wanted to know in her heart that she did everything there was possible to prevent that. We knew going in that there more than likely wouldn't be anything that Dr's could do; but with Faith and modern day technology we had hope that maybe just maybe something might come from these appts.

However after reviewing her charts the Dr advised there was nothing they could do to help her. Surgery would be a matter of life or death, and he said unfortunately surgery would lean closer to death than life. He said that he nor any Dr should perform surgery on her, her and the only way they would is if she was already on the verge of life and death.

She was very emotional when telling me this news, I know in her heart she was hoping for more. My heart aches for her, I can not imagine what it will be like living day by day knowing that tomorrow may be your last day walking for the rest of your life.

I hate seeing her in pain, I hate seeing her embarrassed because she can't walk normally; I want my mom to be happy and I pray that one day she can be at ease with this journey God has placed her on and as pain free as she can possibly be.

If you have a moment can you please say a small prayer for peace for my mother, I would greatly appreciate that.

Will be praying for your Mom, Tiffany. I am not sure exactly what her problems are--but I will pray for healing and peace. Thinking about you...

I am not sure what your mom's medical history is, but it sounds very similar to my mother's situation. The doctors can only agree on one thing, and that is that surgery would probably kill her. After her last surgery in 2002 she never fully recovered. My mother's condition has her in a motorized wheelchair for any out of town activity. She rarely is able to do more than walk around her house. If she goes to the store it always is for short trips. My mom is only 54 so it bothers me that she is in such poor help.

I'm so sorry. :( We'll keep her in our prayers. What diagnosis does she have? My mom has severe pain as well and it's awful when there is nothing we can do to make it go away. Tell her we're thinking about her! :)
