Unhappy Mom Is Going Blind/Blood Clots In Lungs - March 9th 2010, 08:04 AM

I don't how much more I have to wait... I don't know what to do. She's been in and out of the hospital... Specialists have come in and they still don't know what's wrong with her!? Science always thinks they are better than God.. So far they haven't done anything. They've failed me. My mom is losing her sight in, now as I've learned tonight, her other eye. It's started to effect the other now... She has blood clots in her lungs. Really? They are doctors, and they can't just figure out why someone can't see or has blood clots?! When we need them the most they do nothing. They can't call and find out form other doctors. I don't want my mom to not be able to see me or even die. I don't want to have to tell my nine year old sister her mother is blind or dead. I can't stand to see her in the hospital. She's so fragile and scared, I'm so afraid and scared. I love her and I just want her back to normal. Please pray, please. If any of you know or care, pray, or do whatever you do for hope and miracles. I really need you guys right now, I've never had this happen to me before. Please... Please...

holly.

i am praying so that everything will be alright..

Why not you try asking other specialists that are around using e-mail, or any method that you know .and also ask everyone you know and trust for help. this is something very urgent.It's best to get as many people as possible to pool their time, and ask for help. There is always a strong chance that someone you know knows someone that will be able to help in a huge way.

But no matter what, i know your mother deserves the best, and so do you. We are all going to support you wholeheartedly through this..

As for the diagnosis .. there can be a lot of possible causes for this..a lot. However, there is definitely a way to find out which is the true cause. Just stay strong, and remember to pray.. and always never lose hope. I know your mom loves you.. and you love her. And we're definitely going to help.

no matter what happens, we are definitely going to be one in hoping and praying that everything gets better.

caring always, and update us on how this issue goes... i hope your mom gets better.


Those who have went through more pain than everyone else, and want to protect anyone and everyone they know and care for from that pain, are stronger than everyone.

we come, we help, we stick and never leave. pm me anytimeee!

Thank you so much for responding. I usually don't post like this, but I really need all the support and help I can. I feel like she's so close to something bad happening.

I'm probably going to go see her after school. So far she's pretty much the same as I last talked to her. I cried last night on the phone and couldn't sleep very well. I woke up and my boyfriend kind of had to help me get back to sleep.

She said that even the special specialists don't know what's going on? If they don't know, then who else would?

Holly--

As Abraham Lincoln said, "I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming."

I'm truly sorry that all of this is happening to your mother. I won't sit here and pretend that I could possibly know what what you're doing through is like because I don't... I can imagine it must be really hard though. The doctors, I'm sure, are doing the best they can, though it would not hurt at all to try around to find specialists and what not. In fact, through perseverance it could be quite possible that you find someone who could really help. There's a lot of docs out there, some know more than others!

As for you mother at the moment, just keep in mind that she's in God's hands now. She has your prayers, my prayers and I'm sure plenty of other people's as well and just keep positive. She'll push through it and be all right, no matter what. Let her know how much she means to you, never lose hope and keep moving forward, regardless of how hard things may seem to get. No matter the outcome, God will take care of her and I pray she has a swift recovery and gets well very soon. Good luck, and if you ever need to talk, I'm always listening.


I love the name of honour more than I fear death.

Holly,
I'm praying and hoping and thinking about you and your mom.
I'm really sorry to hear about your mom but even in the worst of times, you'll get through it.
Keep your head up, and you and your mother will get through this together.
PM me anytime.
Stay strong,

Alessa


Whatever it is, chances are I've been there.
If I can make it out, you can too.

Hi Holly
I'm so sorry to hear about your mother. The only thing to can do for her is be loving and supportive and stay and pray for her. If science doesn't have the answers you are looking for, don't lose your faith. Try to keep your head up, although it is hard. Be there for your mom, stay strong for your sister. I'll pray for you all, so that God will gives you the strength to get through. God bless you.


Everyone is born right-handed. Only the greatest overcome it.

Hello there Holly. How are you now and how is your mother ? Now with everything else that has been said, I need you to tell your mother this ; Don't be afraid, don't be fearful. The way she thinks has a very big effect so she needs not to be fearful. Constantly remind her that. If she seems fearful remind her to be courageous in her heart.


I came here to help out, so if you wanna talk or just need someone to bounce ideas or issues off of or something else then send me a message and I will reply as soon as I can.

Stay strong!
Thinking of you

Re: Mom Is Going Blind/Blood Clots In Lungs - March 12th 2010, 02:06 AM

That really sounds bad and im sorry for whats going on. Really if there was something that could be done, but I cant think of much on my end that I can do, other than post on here.

She's got to look after herself and needs ur support... but see it this way also, that it won't help her knowing that ur gettin depressed over her condition. It might even make her feel guilty for it which won't help at all (more anxiety for her). Try (as hard as it is) to persevere with ur life, and make it at least look to her that ur getting along well with your own life, so she doesnt feel like she has to worry about ur health (or depression) also. I hope u understand where Im coming from. If u dont say so and Il try to reword this better.
