Topic: Small update on MIL
For those who don't know me yet. My mother n law was diagnosed 5 weeks ago with inoperable, stage 4 CC. This past Monday she had an internal stent placed, as well as a feeding tube. My MIL hasn't been able to eat in 6 weeks, hence the feeding tube. She was discharged from hospital on Wednesday. Yesterday, I visited her around 10am and noticed she was having difficulty breathing. Long story short- she was taken to the emergency room via ambulance. There she was diagnosed with pulmonary edema. Pulmonary edema is caused by congestive heart failure. Also, they found a "good size" clot in her left ventricle.
I just can't believe this has all happened in such a short period of time. Does anyone have an experience similar to this. Or know someone with similar situation. This is just crazy! Now in addtion to her heart failing-prob a result from tumor, we have to worry about this clot. If the clot breaks off, she will have a stroke and die. It's just all too much.
Thanks for listening,
