One of our kindred members who has moved to North Carolina, Mandy Allison posted the other day her mom wasnt doing well. I emailed her today and this is what she wrote me.
“Ritchie went back home to find mom had been hospitalized with a 105 temp, red face, and confusion…she had pneumonia and doc pulled ritchie out of room to tell him if the lady hadnt come and checked on her she mightve died. While in the hospital they ran tests. The found a large nodule on her lung and one on her throat. They have told her to followup in a week. Ritchie and I suspect it is cancer. (Obviously with our family). He called me to say it was serious. They sent her home not fully recovered from the pneumonia… he says it has her attention. She takes rheumatoid meds and so her immune system is pretty much nil. Dont know the outlook beyond that.”
Mandy is still a member of our kindred, and if folks could spare a moment to offer up a prayer or light a candle it would be much appreciated
