Diagnosis for Mom

It’s an ulcer. Actually, two ulcers. Big ones.

She hasn’t had anything to eat Sunday morning, unless you could the units of blood as “eating.”  There have been at least four units of that so far. She’s feeling frustrated and discouraged. She can’t take most of her meds because of her stomach. As long as she is in the hospital she can have pain med in her IV, which she needs for the pain from the last surgery.

Still, of the things it might have been, ulcers are better. They are treatable.
