Last night my sister called and said that our mother had been rushed to the hospital. My sister went to the hospital and after many hours the ER doctor came out to tell her the diagnosis. My sister had the doctor call me and explain the situation. ” Your mom has a mass in between her lungs and her sternum. You should start setting up hospice care immediately. The only thing at this point with her age is pain management.” I canceled my trip to New Orleans and was waiting this morning to figure out the logistics of her “end of life care” and how I could go back and forth while she was dying. Needless to say it was a very long night. This morning a new ER Doctor gave her a cat scan and said ” Your mother was misdiagnosed. The mass is a hernia. Cancel the hospice care.” UnF believable. Last night my mother was dying of cancer and today she has a hernia that is going to cause reflux. This has been completely crazy. Trip back on for New Orleans.
