    Just in time for the holidays. Ever since we got her back after the internal bleeding, she's felt bloated and weak, come to find out that she WAS bloated and weak. Something is filling Mom's abdomen with fluid to the point that she has needed 02 at a couple points because it gets hard to breathe.

    No idea what's causing this, but they've already tried draining her system once, took out 5 liters of whatever the hell this stuff is, and the fluid buildup keeps coming back.

    And she still managed to do hand drawn Chrismas cards. I have no idea how. but she could really use some prayers that the doctors can figure out what's causing this problem and shut it down.

    Illness in the family is always stressful and frightening. Lean on friends / loved ones whenever possible. They can be invaluable in difficult times.

    So sorry to hear this news, @Simpelton.
    How old is your mom. I’m afraid this sounds like ascites. Prayers to her and your family.

    Good luck buddy. I hope everything turns out OK. This time of year is tough enough without what you’re dealing with.

    Had similar symptoms. In and out of the hospital for several months. Ended up having to force the ER’s hand and tell them I wasn’t going home again. I thought I was going to die. Come to find out I had a ruptured gallbladder and was going to die. Fight for your Mom and make sure she gets the best care possible. I wish her the best, and for you all to have a wonderful holiday, albeit a bit unorthodox.

    She's 63 and a cancer survivor. Ascites is plausible. But they still need to track down exactly what's failing. Reading up on Ascites it looks like it could be caused by any of half a dozen things

    Her name is Carol A. Peterson. Mine, which I've shared before here, is George A. Peterson.

    There, now you can steal my identity and take all my college debt for yourself

    She's an incredible mother and has been the backbone of our family for as long as it existed.

    George no offense but Sammy is also dealing with tough health situation himself...that was a bit harsh my friend ....in my experience....having a persons name in prayer circles is more PERSONAL, effective and sincere....and can be repeated weekly....prayers to you and mom
