My Mom

We heard on Wednesday that my mom was in the hospital. After only two weeks in Jordan she contracted a serious lung infection. Fluid filled her lungs and surrounded her heart. The doctors were nearly ready to medivac her to Germany for treatment. Before that they decided to treat the infection and see if they could control the infection there in Amman. She is much better now and back at home after 3 nights in the hospital. Originally when the doctor looked at the images of her chest he gave her only 3 days to live. My mom had to patiently explain she had cancer as a child and that all the dark spots on her vital organs were results of radiation scarring. She now has a prognosis of living much longer. Glad you are feeling better mom.
