    Default Prayer request for my mother

    My mother has collapsed in the shower twice now. The first time, she kinda fainted and could not get up. Luckily her phone was close enough she could crawl to it and call my dad home from work. The second time was today, and her phone was too far away and she spent around 7 hours on the shower floor until my dad got home.

    She was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes a few years back, but such a mild case that she wasn't on insulin or anything. She also has had a hip replacement last year. Really bad arthritis among other problems, but this is new.

    Please say a prayer that she gets a good diagnosis on Monday from her doctor appointment and that she doesn't have any more spells. I really hate living so far away from my parents when stuff like this happens.

    Thanks guys

    Thanks, Jake

    My sister's mother in law was going to take my mom in to get blood work done this morning. She called my dad at 9:15 to tell him she was sitting on the shower floor again I'm getting really worried.

    They convinced the doctor to see her and they're up there right now.

    Dr thinks it's her heart or neurological. CT scan ordered today, cardiologist tomorrow.

    I have dealt with a similar issue in the family before so I know how hard that is. Prayers are going out to your family.

    Thanks bro.

    The latest update is that the CT scan showed 2 masses in her brain. They sent her to the ER to see a neurologist. She's waiting in triage for a spot right now. Dad's phone is almost dead, so I don't know when I'll get updates.

    Thanks guys.

    Latest update: there are 3 masses, 2 in the frontal lobe that are 2.5 centimeters and one about an inch or so at the base of her brain at the spinal cord. That one is certainly causing problems such as swelling, nerve issues, pinching, cutting off flow, etc. It needs to come out and will happen either tonight or tomorrow probably.
    They said that these are probably caused by something else wrong in the body and are doing a body scan to look for other signs. Chances are high that this is cancer.

    It was so sudden... they were literally just down here this weekend for a visit

    Body scan came back this morning. She has a lesion in her breast, some in her lungs and her lymph nodes are swollen. Plan is to biopsy the one in her breast. The Oncologist believes this started with the one in her breast and spread. Biopsy will confirm that. This is not looking good right now.

    Won't get biopsy back for a few days. She is showing signs of diminished mental capacity right now. Could be anesthesia, might not be. Don't know. I'll probably drive up tonight before I don't have the chance to talk to my mom again.

    Still waiting on biopsy results to find out what type of breast cancer she has.
    Good news is that the steroids seem to be working and reducing the swelling in her brain which helps with her confusion. I drove up way late Friday night and saw her all day Saturday and also a bit this morning.

    The oncologist and neurosurgeon say that she will get doses of radiation 5 times a week to hopefully shrink the tumors in her brain once results come back.

    Please say prayers for her...
