My mom/midwestma asked if I would leave of message here for all her friends, she may not be on for awhile, she was in ER with severe lobar pneumonia again this year, and is very depressed, normally my mom is always full of cheer, no matter her pain she always bring up us kids,even tho we're adults, she never complains, I've never seen like this before, her O2 levels are at 67, and when she walks it drops even lower, docs say she will have to go home on O2 machine again this year, she has been crying a lot,some thing she don't usually do, we are so worried about her, I don't know what I would do if I lost the best Mom god could ever give us. I am so depressed myself, can anyone help me, she tries to be upbeat, but I know her better, she comes here often, I know, everytime I visit, she is on this site always trying to be a help to others, so I don't understand why she won't let us help also, Im always tellinging her what a blessing she is to have such a great mom, no oher like here. Can anyone help me to help her? I'm afraid of losing her, (crying now), I don't know what i'd do without her in our life. I've read many posts here, from all of you and her posts a so typcal of her, always there for evryone else,and she forget how important she is to us tool Mom has been so through so much mediclly and yet she is always maintaing a smile for all those around her, I would lay down and die if she where not here. I'm so scare. she has tri-lobpar pneumoia , her 'ana test and sed rate is off the charts, her blood preassure is so high, 182/117 and her O2 leveles are so low. I am scared. and she is only worried about offending someone here fear of thinking someone here is thinks she is ignoring someone here, I can see by the posts why she likes it here so much. If I am rambling so much please excuse me, I am just worried about my mom. again thank you so much, any help would be so appreciated/ second oldest daughter of in our family,, and we are so worried abourt her any suggestions would really help right now ,thank you so much for listening. Nancy;midwesta 's second daughter.
I hope I am in the right place, Mom;midwestam asked if I would leave a message for ya'll?

I am exhausted, I've spent every minute altenateing with my borther and sister at ICU, the good new is, when whe is walking now her O2 level is up to 89, which according to the repiratory theripist is good news, at rest she is at 92 O2, I'm so thrilled! They are tallking about sending her home on O2, they have already decided to send her home, why I do not not know, except when an insurance adjuster came in while I was visiting, and stated to me that according to guiedlines mom fit the guidelines to home nursing times three visits. This amazes me, out of concern for her health. Thankfully mom has made many chruch friends whom have all offered to visit her on a regular basis rotating the days , I cannot tell you how great this makes us all feel. I know mom makes friends easily, however the plethoa of people whom came forward during her time of need, is indeed overwhelming. I am so blessed to have the Mom I do have, and non of us can relate to life without her, please don't misunderstand, our father is equally as special to us also, I guess that is why they have been toghether so long, as young as they were married. Again I appolize for my rambling, I just feel comforatble sharing here. I see now why mom brags about the woderful compionships she has aquired here, along with such a plethora ofpoeplel who are so full advice, she loves each and everyone of you here, she especially gets a a "kick" out of someone called "maso", and I cannot remember all the other names, so please accept my oppologies for that. My humble thanks to each and everyone of you who've been there for me. Please ejoy your day, as I know I will, when mom come home I will let ya'll know.
Your mother is a great human being , an example to all of us here at drugs.com.
As you say she is always helping others and perhaps did not help herself.
You have to stand by your mother, she has to see you strong, supportive and above all a loving and affectionate daughter. You must remain calm at all times , if not she will start to worry and that will not help her.
I am a good friend of your mom, and I also do not want anything bad to happen to her at all.
She will be in my prayers, can you please send a message from me?
My dear friend may GOD always be by your side, in your soul, heart, mind and body. Thank you Nancy and may God bless you and your family as well.
My most sincere wishes,
Please tell your mother she is in our hearts and prayers. She is always so very kind and caring. She has many friends here that will be thinking of her.
Please trust her doctors, you must try to stay positive. Worrying will not help this situation at all, it will just make you feel bad.
Wishing you and midwestma all the best,
Your post made me cry. I love my mom just the same. Mom's, and I mean good moms, are just like yours. They are always thinking of others needs before their own. Listen to Andres and sweetlemon as their advice is right on. As they said, don't worry too much and follow everything her docs say. Above all she does not have to worry about anyone here. She's been there for so many and those people know it. This is her time to take care of herself. Our prayers are with you all.

I will also be praying for you too for strenghth my dear. Please keep us updated on your mom as well as how you are doing I am very concerned about your well being too this is got to be hard on you from what I am reading. Please hang in there and give mom my best. God bless you and mom as well as your family, marjorie zych
Hi Nancy, How thoughtful you are to let us all know how you're mom is doing. She has always welcomed everyone here and has been helpful to each and every one of us. She was the first person I ever added to my list of friends. Please be by her side as much as you can and tell her all her friends here at DC are pulling for her and adding her to our list of prayers everyday day and night. Please tell her Fall Queen sends her best wishes. If it comforts you to come on site, please feel free. Your mom is the greatest! Please, we all know you must be very busy and very tired, but iof you could keep us posted it would be greatly appreciated. God Bless you and your mom. Fall Queen
